You have to start somewhere

by Lisbeth Darsh

You have to start somewhere.

Nobody begins life with a muscle-up.

Nobody was born with pull-ups.

Nobody deadlifted 500lbs as a newborn.

So, stop thinking about what you can’t do right now and start focusing on what you could accomplish — in CrossFit and in life.

No successful person was born a success. They made themselves that way, through effort and practice and perseverance.

Even if they were born with what some might consider advantages of genetics or economics, they still had to work at it.

Nothing comes easy in this life . . . at least nothing good does.

So start where ever you have to start. But resolve to finish where you want to finish.

  3. Love today’s post 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼
    I came across this line in a weightlifting post a few months ago that has stuck with me and I often refer to it in my training. It reminds me not to measure myself or my progress by what someone else is doing.
    “You have to accept where you are and start from there. Everyone starts from where they’re at.”

    This was fun! It was different doing the Good Morning Darlings without holding a ruck overhead!
