15 Push press Imagine being so good at something that almost by accident you end up in the Olympic Games! Yeah… I have a hard time imagining that too, but it actually happened to Kendrick Farris. Don’t get me wrong, he’s been thinking about it and training since he was about 12 years old, but the way he was going about it… training part time, working other jobs, partying, etc, he wasn’t all in… and still, he took 8th!
He’s about to start his quest for a World Championship (by the way, he has a 447 pound clean & jerk), and this time, he’s all in. He’s 100% committed. We’ll see what happens… but as I was watching his video, I started thinking about one of my favorite quotes:
“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, the providence moves too. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way.”
~W.H. Murray (also credited by some to Johann W. Goethe)
What are the things in your life that you’d like to get great results, but for which you’re not truly committed?
