Grit. What does it mean? To me, grit is about courage. It’s about guts, relentlessness, discipline and consistency. It’s about the courage to keep pushing forward. Most of us have a fear of not being enough and it comes at us in many ways. Through anxiety, anger, embarrassment, nervousness, stress, jealousy, envy, etc. All of these are tied to our fear of not being enough. It takes GRIT to acknowledge and face our fears. It’s hard. Really hard. They say nothing grows in your comfort zone and that’s accurate. Nothing changes unless you do.
So what are you going to do? To get past the “I hate my job”, “I hate my life”, “I hate the path i’m on”? What are you going to do to start experiencing your life the way you want? You have to find something to push you beyond that comfort zone, beyond that limit and past those fears. That something is YOU. Only you can break down those fears and it takes GRIT. It takes massive massive amounts of it. I know it’s terrifying. I’ve been there. I have so much admiration for every single person that walks through those doors at Grit Gym. I know how much courage it takes to decide to commit to change and walk into the unknown. It takes guts to walk into Grit and begin your health journey and that’s the kind of tribe we have. A tribe full of people with grit, courage, guts, discipline and consistency.
The next time you hear someone say, “Oh I could never do that. I could never do what you do at the gym.” Say to them, “I agree you couldn’t if you never try.” People who say that aren’t looking for validation, they are looking to be pushed. They need a little positive pressure and support. We all know starting is the hardest part so give them a little nudge. It takes courage to push and support someone, step up and lead. You know that once they get going they are going to change and your relationship will change. But change is the only constant. So keep pushing. Get into that uncomfortable zone and make shit grow.
