I saw a video the other day of a younger Julie Foucher (CrossFit Games athlete and M.D.) doing foundations back in 2010.
Watching this video popped this idea into my head, and I wanted to share it with you all.
Julie Foucher started doing CrossFit just like the rest of us – not as a stellar athlete – but just pretty regular.
She struggled with the same exact movements that we all struggle with. Years later, with an unwavering determination, she is known as one of the best female CrossFit athletes of all time.
What if you had started CrossFit many years ago and trained and ate like a champion – giving everything your all, 100% effort day in and day out? Where would you be today?
Now what if I tell you that today is Day 1… and you have the rest of your life ahead of you. How are you going to use it?
People like Julie Foucher start on Day 1 and give whatever they are doing their all. They don’t make excuses, complain or get down on themselves. They know that the journey will be long but they are willing to put in the work. There will be bad days, probably more so than good days, but in the end it will be worth it.
So whatever you are doing – CrossFit related or not – work your tail off every single day to get better at it.
It’s your responsibility.
P.s. Please don’t confuse the above sentiments with me saying everyone should be a CrossFit Games champion. Rather, to show everyone out there that you can do anything you put your mind to if you really want.
So go out there and kick ass everyday.
