“80% of success is showing up.” – Woody Allen
We can become obsessed with achievements. It’s something we can all fall victim to in our journey. We chase the weightlifting PR, chase the next promotion, chase the next “X”.
As an example, let’s say we’re moving through a 10-Week Snatch program… and things are feeling *great*. We’re 9 weeks in, and not only are we moving so much better than when we started, the same weights we started with feel so, so much easier. What used to be a heavy lift for us is a no-brainer now.
But until we move a single pound over our current PR at the end of the cycle, we don’t allow ourselves to consider, that we’ve already PR’d. And if we test out at Week 10 of the cycle, and do not PR… what would be our immediate reaction?
The paradigm shift is this:
To not view progress as a means to an achievement.
And instead, to view progress, as the achievement.
If we can train progress to be the prize, the other half, tends to take care of itself.
