Even those that seem the most confident harbour strains of self-doubt. Defy the negative self-talk. Defy your demons and conquer them.
Sometimes, the best therapy is a quiet gym, a barbell, and good music.
Late evening, at CrossFit Hoboken. Working in the back room, getting stronger, driving demons from my heart and mind, honing my craft.
A simple night of back squats, power cleans, and sumo deadlift high pulls. There is something cleansing about hard work.
As a coach, it is through serving others that I receive some of my greatest satisfaction; it is a feeling of redemption, if you will. I also seek redemption through sweat, some pain, and a little blood.
“The job will not save you.”
I have learned this truth the hard way. It will not save you. But, it can provide some catharsis. For this, and for you, I am thankful.
Love ya Nomads,
Am I an innovator? Hardly. Few true innovators exist. The ones that self-label themselves are no more than narcissistic posers unwilling to recognize that greatness is built on the shoulders of giants.
Me, an innovator? Hardly. A work in progress, forever a student: this I shall always be.
