What Happens to You When You Get Knocked Down?
12 athletes signed up for a 12 hour event of warrior training. We worked on being “Comfortable in the Uncomfortable” and showing these warriors they could push themselves 20 times harder than they ever imagined.
I believe that every athlete there had their moments of self doubt and “Can I keep going and make it through this”?
One athlete in particular got wobbly during the second hour (the first hour was tough). His body failed him but his mind kept moving. After a period of time he got back up and got back with the group.
He could have sat it out and made an excuse “These guys didn’t feed and pushed me too hard” or whatever. Instead he dug down deep and got up off the floor and jumped back in with the group.
For all of us that would he a defining moment in our life.
I know it was for myself more than once in my years on this planet.
What would you have done?
SGPT Homework: Write down at time in your life when you did not quit and got back up on your feet and finished the drill. How did you feel? By writing it down you commit it to memory and use it as a tool for future battles.
