Workout of the Day



Today we practice a skill, handstand push-ups. They are physically and mentally challenging, overwhelming for most. Many will dismiss the practice as unnecessary because handstand push-ups are “hard.” Even worse, some people will talk themselves into believing that they aren’t necessary or relevant. In doing so individuals have committed to the odd practice of denying the benefit of something before it has been earned. This practice creates ignorance of the ability of the human body to develop, to improve, and to make a change. Sadly, this fixed mindset permits failure without effort.

A growth mindset on the other hand is something genuinely special. It is the idea that we are becoming something more. While we are in pursuit of the pinnacle of performance, we do so with an understanding that the challenge is great. As your effort continues, you are bound to improve. This is obvious when you look at an untrained person doing push-ups on the first day. Stamina and strength are challenged beyond comprehension. However that same person, after making the commitment to practice, develops the strength and stamina to complete ten unbroken repetitions in less than six weeks. Somewhere in those six weeks, a change occurred that wasn’t was a mental shift. The realm of impossible became possible and now the goal has changed. They can see even more possibilities with a newly acquired capacity.

When you adjust your mindset, opportunities become limitless.

See you out there. #developyourself
