Daily Mindset
"Every action you take is a vote for the type of person you wish to become. No single instance will transform your beliefs, but as the votes build up, so does the evidence of your new identity." – James Clear
If someone has 10 coins, are they rich? Let’s say no.
What if they have 100 coins. Probably not.
What about 1,000 coins?
There is a tipping point. A number where our answer changes to yes. It actually narrows down to a single coin where that takes place.
But… we know it wasn’t just the single coin. It was the culmination of the many before. We can apply this same logic to our identity. By itself, walking the shopping cart back to its home isn’t going to change who we are as an individual. By itself, picking up trash outside of the local school isn’t going to either. It’s the culmination, that will. These votes for who we are, seemingly small at the time, add up.
A pitfall in life is when we view instances throughout our day as insignificant. We tell ourselves, "this won’t make a difference". Yet at the end of the day, just like the single coin, it’s all that matters.

OPEN (RX+): 135/95

• Today is a good day to scare yourself a little with large sets on the barbell
• If we minimize sets on the barbell, we maximize time spent moving
• Even if this slows you down a little on the burpees, you’re still going to be moving forward with slow reps on the ground
• Be methodical and breathe overhead on the push jerks
• It’s better to be in control of large sets than to speed through large sets

• Burpee at a pace that allows you to smash the barbell
• Move nice and controlled for the first 2 rounds, but empty the tank on the last round knowing there is nothing left
