What if I fail?
What if things go wrong?
What if I crumble in front of people?
What if others criticize me?
What if I get stuck, and don’t know what to do?
What if I can’t do it?
Have these questions ever consumed you before or during a WOD? Have they kept you from performing your best or trying new challenges? Probably.
Sometimes, the best attack is to actually think about what would happen. What if you miss the lift? Well, then, the weight drops, you pick it up, and you try again. So what?
What if you try to jump on the box, but you just can’t make yourself go off of both feet? Grab a lower box and try again tomorrow. So what?
What if someone says something like “you never should have tried to go Rx on that WOD”? You say “cool, thanks, I’m glad I tried it though, I would never have known if I didn’t go for it.” So what?
If these thoughts and questions keep popping into your head, you may want to try to think of what the worst thing that could happen would be. Then, realize it will be okay.
