"There comes a point in most workouts where you question what you're doing and you simply wish it would end. This happens for me in longer workouts usually---one's that are over 15 minutes and/or 7 rounds or more. I'll be plowing along and in the 4th round out of 7 I'll think, "This is stupid. I don't even care about my time. If nobody were here with me I would stop." It's at that very moment that I draw on information that I received at Greg Amundson's CrossFit Goal Setting Course. I remind myself to think positive. It takes effort but I have to block out those negative thoughts and concentrate on, "Feeding the right dog....the dog of courage." Greg beautifully illustrates how to set this plan in motion and if practiced it can have an immediate impact on your outlook both in and out of workouts. I use pieces from the Goal Setting Course in my daily life and my daily workout and the results have been nothing short of amazing."

The Parable of the Starfish and the Old Man

_______________

One morning a young man was walking along the sea-shore after a horrific storm. The beach was strewn with seaweed, drift-wood, and debris. The young man thought to himself;

This has been such a terrible and powerful storm.

As the young man continued to walk, far in the distance, he noticed an old man, who despite his age, seemed to be dancing along the shore. As the young man drew closer, he saw the old man was picking up starfish from the sand, and throwing them back into the ocean. PaulScottUnderWater

What are you doing?” The young man asked the old man.

“The sun is going to come up soon, and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw these starfish back into the ocean, they are going to die.” Replied the old man.

“Silly old man, you cant possible make a difference. There are thousands of starfish washed up on the beach.” Laughed the young man.

The old man smiled a wise smile, then bent down and picked up a starfish. With all his strength, he hurled the starfish far out into the blue ocean.

“Well sonny, it made a difference to that one.” Said the old man.

With these words, the old man continued in his efforts to save the lives of the starfish, one at a time. The young man, greatly moved and influenced by the old man, started to do the same.

In the distance, a young woman was walking towards them, wondering why two men were dancing among the waves.
