Going Against The GrainEver since I was little I’ve always been going against the grain. This mindset coaching article isn’t about me though. It’s about 99% of you won’t even follow this because everyone is trying to fit in not find their true self.

When people gather into one spot, like a sporting event, there is a flow and order to getting inside. Next time you’re walking in be sure to pay attention to this. It’s like a herd of cattle. Without thinking about it they simply file in.

That’s what life can feel like. Always doing the same routine. Because of that same routine, the changes seem so foreign. However, it doesn’t have to feel like that. It can be better and different every single day. Going against the grain starts to feel like the new norm.

When I was in college I use to lift weights and smoke cigarettes. That’s totally going against the grain. Quitting smoking was the hardest things to do, but very grateful I was able to. Chewing lots of sunflower seeds and packs and packs and packs of gum and boom, done.

Also, once you decide to go against the grain or realize that you’ve always been doing so life gets fun. Because of the awareness, you’ll be able to stop trying to fit in and start living your life for exactly who you are. It’s been fun since I’ve always been 100% me.

Once you feel like your true self, going against the grain will actually feel like a blessing. Others are out there and connecting with those people will feel so nice. There are actually way more of us than society realizes. Whenever you see someone smiling for no apparent reason, you know they’re going against the grain.

Happiness follows happiness. Meaning that when you’re happy it actually will show and people want to be around that. Don’t be afraid of the new people in your life. Welcome them and love them
Maybe they’re looking to learn something from you. That’s very normal too. Take it in and start teaching what you’ve learned about yourself.

Working out without a rest day is totally going against the grain. It’s ok though. By now you know that muscle groups are never overused by design. So get that WOD done and reinforce your foundational mindset and skill set to match the true you.

Have Fun!
