One thing my fitness journey has taught me is to not give up. Since fitness is a journey, the only way to get great results is to keep going.
If you have a big fitness goal like squatting 400 pounds or being able to run a marathon, it’s going to take time. On your journey to achieving that goal you may face challenges. Giving up is the last thing you should do. Imagine if a toddler gave up because he kept falling when learning how to walk. Imagine if Usain Bolt gave up because he lost a race when he was younger. Giving up will prevent you from reaching your potential and achieving greatness.
Like many lifters and fitness junkies, I’ve faced challenges on my journey. I’ve missed lifts, I’ve faced plateaus, and even dealt with injuries. By not giving up, I’m now the strongest I’ve ever been. Not giving up during my fitness journey taught me not to give up when I face challenges in life. Also, those challenges that I faced on my journey taught me some valuable lessons. So when you face challenges, embrace them as learning experiences. You’ll not only increase your chances of achieving your goals but you’ll also gain new levels of confidence and mental toughness.
I believe fitness is a perfect analogy to life overall. The character growth you experience in your fitness journey can and will transfer to other areas of your life. Plus refusing to give up is like flipping the middle finger to any setbacks or challenges you face! When you face challenges in fitness or in life, DON’T GIVE UP!
