Always loved that.

With the caveat that it helps to every now and then assess whether your path is correct. More than once, I have "persisted" in error for a long time. Being shown a better way profoundly changed things.

Good stuff, may I contribute:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Marianne Williamson

There was a great rest day discussion last year (sorry I don't remember the date) where everyone posted their favorite poems.

There was a ton of great / motivational posts.

If there's one line that could be the most inpirational to me its "Never Quit". Its simple and its been the creed of many elite military units in the history of the USA but I think it really means alot to people specifically interested in Crossfit.

As I'm doing that 50th thruster and my heart feels like its going to explode I just utter those words in my head and it somehow keeps me going.
