Find Out What You’ve Got
By Lisbeth Darsh
Doing something you’ve never done before: that’s not easy. Not as an adult. As kids, we’re used to trying new things. As adults, we find safety in our knowledge and our accomplishments.
Learning? Admitting you’re brand new at something? Trying something you’ve always wanted to do, somewhere deep inside but you were too scared to ever really admit it? That’s rough stuff. You have to be tough to throw yourself into that mix.
But you need to.
Or you might end up among those legions of folks who go through life and realize later, way later, that they should have grabbed that opportunity, should have laid themselves out there, should have taken that overseas job, should have visited their mom that last time, should have kissed that girl.
Safe in everything is nice, but it’s boring. Follow your heart, as scary as that might be. Go kick up into that handstand, go try that Skin the Cat, go open your own CrossFit affiliate.
Do what tightens your throat and drops your heart into your stomach: it’s the only way to find out what you’ve really got.
