Life

Setting Goals can be hard. We tend to get over ambitious and excited, we shoot high, maybe too high. Which is not always a bad thing, but sometimes it causes a case of the disappointments. Or on the other hand we don’t give ourselves enough credit and underestimate our abilities. It’s a tricky slope.

When we don’t reach the goals we originally set should we consider it a failure? Or merely a miscalculated target that needs to be reevaluated?

I suppose it’s whatever you want it to be.

It all comes down to this:

Perspective

Attitude

Heart

And

The perfect mix of realism and optimism.

Goals are important. Knowing that you are capable of great things is important. Understanding that other people are also capable of great things is important.

BUT

The most important thing of all is to never give up.

“Believe in yourself. You can do it. You just gotta try.” – Diane Van Deren

“You can have your goals but don’t miss the right turn, left turn, right turn, because that’s where our character and confidence and self-esteem come from.” – Diane Van Deren

Those two quotes from the current book I am reading called, “Ten Years Later” by Hoda Kotb (highly recommend) inspired this post today, along with my feelings on the Crossfit Opens…

Embrace each day. Be happy. Smile often. Laugh as much as possible. Love with every ounce of your soul.

If you do those things life will be nothing short of amazing.
