The stock market has it’s ups and downs. Take a look at the stock below. It’s obvious that it’s not doing so well. Would you invest in it? Probably not, the way it’s headed. It started out good, had a couple nice days, but it mostly sucks.
What you can’t tell is that’s only a small snapshot of the big picture. That last picture was only 14 days. The next one shows 38 days (with the 14 days in the middle).
Take this example and think about your training. Some days you come to the gym, and everything feels fast and light. Other days, you have trouble with the warm-up. What do you do on the ‘down’ days? How do you react? Frustration? Anger? Maybe you need to take a step back and look at the big picture. If you only focus on the day (or week), you may have those negative feelings. Like you’re not progressing – becoming stagnant. But look at the journey from a few months ago. Look at how far you’ve come. Look at where you’re headed in the long run.
Don’t expect every day to be a PR day. It can’t be. Use the struggles you encounter to learn something about yourself. Demand more of yourself. Take pride in the trek.
