Do you have an ally in the gym whose scores you’re always trying to beat? Does somebody set the bar high for you? If so, is that person even aware of it?
For a long time, I was always chasing a certain coach. Then one day, we did a workout together where I actually beat him, and I rejoiced. Then, the very next day, he completely destroyed me on a different workout. I told him that he has been my inspiration for a long time, and he had no idea. Somewhere else down the line, an athlete told me that they were always chasing my scores and that the first time they beat me, it was a huge accomplishment for them.
The back and forth and ups and downs only make us all work harder and see better results.
Are you aware that someone is probably after you?
You better give them something to chase.
