Fitness is Built: A Lesson in Being Better Than You Were Yesterday

ITS Tactical has a must-read article on what’s probably the most neglected part of the III% training regimen—physical fitness.

Fitness is built, which is 110% true. It’s work, it’s sweat, it can even be tears, but most of all it’s putting one foot in front of the other and getting started. Somewhere, anywhere. You don’t have to already be in shape and you don’t have anyone else in the world to compete against, except yourself. What’s important to strive for is being better than you were yesterday.

If that means you did one more pushup, resisted the extra chips at lunch, or went all out at the gym, congratulations. You’re better than you were yesterday and that means more than you might be allowing yourself to acknowledge. It’s been said in business that success doesn’t happen overnight. That goes for fitness too. Don’t beat yourself up if what you wanted to accomplish today isn’t “enough.” Try changing your mindset to think of accomplishment as layers and not so black and white. You’re building something. Stack up each day on top of the next, you’ll be surprised how impactful those layers become.

Read the rest. It’s worth your time.
