“It’s how you handle adversity, not how it affects you. The main thing is never quit, never quit, never quit.”
— William J. Clinton
Whether it’s 3 x 800m repeats, Row 5k, or AMRAP 7 Burpees, we have all heard that voice in our head to quit. We have carried the thought of why should I work so hard. It’s easier to do less, stop pushing. You can add your own personal favorites to the list.
In the middle of a CrossFit WOD there is almost always a point in time where self doubt may trickle in. Where the pain seems it will never end. Everyone experiences it. Even the “elite” CrossFitters. This is when you build your character, learn to how to handle the valleys. Push through and get it done.
I am a big believer that what you do within these walls, carry over to outside of them. You begin developing a “Can do” attitude and it stays with you everywhere in your life. You learn to handle adversity in a more positive fashion and you become overall a more productive human being.
As Bill Clinton said above, “never quit, never quit, never quit.”
