Someone is watching you.
They are watching as you choose your weights, as you debate if you should add the extra 5 pounds. And when you do, they see you, your strength, your growth and your achievement.
Someone notices when you are mid-WOD, in the tunnel, seeing no light. They notice whether you give in to it or fight through it.
Someone is there as you get corrections from your coach – will you apply them? Or will you just go for it with the rounded back?
It won’t be the same person every day. It won’t be obvious. But there will always be someone there, watching you. Watching the decisions you make, how you approach failure, how you deal with success, how you put yourself out there for the WOD.
You may think you aren’t at a level where anyone would watch you, or care. But there is always someone struggling more than you, looking up to you.
So you have to decide, each day when you cross the threshold of the gym, when the steel door opens and the music blares in your ears – what kind of a person will you be today?
You have to decide, will you be an inspiration? Will you be the person that someone looks up to and says:
“Because of you, I didn’t give up”?
