Give, growth, green, good…

This morning only two men showed up at the 3PP – Grappy and yours truly. For 40 minutes we focused on form and making each other finish each rep to the full. My core might have hurt more after this 40 than any other to date. Today, when you give your gaze to one teammate, try to block all other thoughts from coming to the fore. Push them to the back of your mind and lose yourself by giving all attention to another – another one.

And, when you find yourself focused on a task at hand, give all attention to that task. Focus on form, pay attention to details, allow nothing to enter your mind but the mastery of the task in the moment. Give your complete attention to your aim. Notice competing thoughts, anxieties, doubts, and fears attempt to creep in on your peripheries. Block them. Focus on your job and finish it well.

Your mind is freakin’ magic and Debbie downer. Remember the truth is not that the grass is greener on the other side. The truth is that the grass is greener where you water it. Water the positive. Give water to another. Give water to your craft. You’ll see the growth, the green and the good. Give it time. Give, growth, green, good. Good…
