You are all truly inspiring! Friday night Open activities are something I look forward to every season. I know that my performance on Friday was subpar. I know that because I came back and crushed my previous scores on Monday. Positive encouragement is incredibly useful and uplifting. However, let’s remember that the truth, even if it hurts, is just as, if not more, powerful. If you know that someone can do better, look them in the eyes and tell them so. Then when they speak to you about what is going on in their lives, continue to look at them in the eyes and really try to understand what they are saying. Our family at the gym doesn’t grow by dripping sweat on the same floor; it grows by knowing who each other is. For instance, I know Shane’s beard can punch harder than most men; Wendi would rather push press than split jerk, but she keeps trying; Nicole has to take a deep breath and exhale rapidly while visualizing a lift. The list goes on, but the point I am trying to make should now be apparent. We all need to know what drives us, pushes us, and makes us. We are a family and one that I would do anything for. None of us are always rainbows and sunshine, but in our family we can find the light that we need to get to where we want to be.
