We're really into these wise words from a wise man during Open season, or any season: . "77 reps less than 16.2. And I’m happy with it... . I can't tell you the number of times I get to be on the receiving end the conversation of "I haven't PRd in a while." Or "I did worse than last time." Or yes, “I suck.” . Let me tell you something: you are NOT defined by your results. You are NOT defined by your betterment in something. You are NOT defined by being "worse." . The issue I have is when someone I talk with is putting the result of a workout, a lift, a movement as the definition of success, progress or winning. Bullsh!t. . This is a fools game because your happiness, your thought of progress and your definition of improvement will then be defined by a stupid barbell, rep count or clock. . Back to being happy... I can re-frame this moment when I did supposedly "worse" or "fell back" on my fitness. . Something I encourage you to do if you think this often (and I won't lie, I sometimes do) is to list all the things you have right now. Here is mine: 1. I am healthy. 2. I am injury free. 3. I am training for life, not sport. I can't expect competition-Tyler results. 4. It's the best I have right now. 5. I am strong. 6. I am capable of quality movement without restriction. 7. I don't have a disease. 8. I have a gym community that supports me. 9. I have a family that loves me regardless of "daddy didn't get as many reps as 3 years ago." . You get the point. . Take a win. Reframe your mindset. Don't put your identity in your results. Control what you can control and leave it all out there." . -@bcftyler #crossfitliberate #crossfit #crossfitinathens #crossfitforeveryone #my_athens #wellnessinathens #freeyourpotential #crossfitopen #intheopen

Very wise! It’s all about perspective. How we see things. Is the ***** half-empty or half-full??
