I came across a pretty great quote this morning and I knew I had seen it before… Funny that the book this quote came out of was one of the 4 currently sitting on my desk.
The basic difference between an ordinary man and a warrior is that a warrior takes everything as a challenge while an ordinary man takes everything as either a blessing or a curse.
Rarely do things just happen, more often than not good things, as well as bad things, are a result. A result of your action (or inaction) and the circumstances you’ve created in your life.
Appalled by the lack of internet privacy? Don’t take naked pictures of yourself and leave them on your internet connected phone. Constantly getting injured doing this dangerous CrossFit stuff? Go find a coach who knows what they are doing.
Stop blaming the world for your problems and take some responsibility for yourself and your circumstances.
With this mindset your wins taste sweeter and your losses motivate you to try harder.
Remember, it could always be worse… But, no matter what the conditions, the warriors will always be out there fighting to succeed.
