What is Resiliency?  Well to put it simply it is your ability, both mentally and physically, to deal with the stresses that are placed on you in life.  According the the world famous Dr. Google Resilience is “the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness”

Right now as we come to the end of the CrossFit Open some of you may not be thrilled with your results.  You may not have done as well as you had hoped, or maybe you set your goals too high for this year.

Mike Lee from OPEX said it perfectly in his recent blog psot titled “What is Resilience?”  Mike says:

At the end of the day remember no one cares where you finish, except YOU. Stop judging yourself according to others. What does it matter?………YOU know that you gave everything to maximize your performance and reach your full potential.

Start getting comfortable with the uncomfortable.”

For some tips on how to increase your resiliency read the rest of Mike’s post here.

If you are resilient you will be able to use this year as a stepping stone to continued improvement and begin working on your weaknesses in preparation for next year.
