Failing Your Way to Success

Failing Your Way to Success

Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. 
Try again. Fail again. Fail better.
~ Samuel Beckett
 
We’ve all had the experiencing of failing. Especially doing CrossFit at CFLA… in fact, if you’ve been doing coming consistently for awhile, you’ve probably become quite the expert. It’s one of the most valuable aspects of your training… failing. 
 
Say what?
 
Yup. Failing. Not succeeding.
 
In most of our lives as adults we don’t participate in things that time time, consistency, and regular effort in order to succeed. Instead we look for success around every corner, growth at each turn. We’ve become soft in our need for instant gratification…  success without much work or investment of time. Quick results… the faster the better. Or even worse, a level playing field so that everyone wins, everyone gets a trophy, no one fails.
 
We’ve forgotten that much of what we owe our success to, the things that have meant the most to us in our lives, are the things that took time, commitment, struggle, sweat, blood, sacrifice, hard work, resiliency, and yes… failure.
 
Why are the things that are most meaningful to you as meaningful as they are? You stared failure in the face, and refused to back down. In one way or another, you got it done. And it was a struggle. 
 
Get used to failure. Bathe in it. Breathe it in. And success, with patience, will come.
