After becoming relentlessly consistent with your movement patterns you now have the freedom and energy to do something that will serve you better. Versus what happened before, which was to waste a ton of mental energy mustering up the motivation to go workout. By the time you get to this stage in the game, WOD #246 will be just like putting on clothes.
Understanding what it takes to become relentlessly consistent with your movement patterns is like when a toddler first starts to walk. It's simply a matter of gaining confidence and balance. Like anything, we start off very uncoordinated and inefficient. After some time, however, the abilities become more familiar and the experiences are fired and wired in our minds. At the same time, the movements are deeply planted within our bodies and the biofeedback is the pain from the repetitions like push-ups.
There isn't a day that goes by that I don't get some type of intentional movement in. It's as habitual as putting on clothes. I reference putting on clothes a lot because people can relate to that as society is driven by what we look like. Another thing is that as human beings we often are fear based. Fear is what keeps us alive and well.
Our survival has been predicated on fear. When we were still living in caves that's all that drove the software in our brains. Some people in today's society live in fear 24/7/365 and don't know it. I call this living in “Victim Mode”. Victim mode is a mindset that has a never-ending story that always has a twist. That twist in the person getting screwed out something, like a bad hair day or someone cut them off on the way to work. Victim mode people cannot let those little things go to have a great day.
Becoming relentlessly consistent with your movement pattern teaches you to stay away from victim mode personalities. Becuase a personality is simply the person's personal reality. They feel the way they think and they think the way they feel. It would be in your best interest to yourself to stay as far away from a Victim Mode personality as possible.
Having said that, here's what's going to happen…
You're going to wake up, take care of someone or something else at first. Then you'll soon realize that you've been giving your energy and attention away as soon as you get up in the morning. That's where you'll begin the habitual changes necessary to get you to the state of becoming relentlessly consistent with your movement patterns.
Taking time for yourself isn't selfish, it's important. You get to keep what you give away and if you give away negative energy, that's what you get to keep. Making the decision to workout each day is a major one at first because you're interrupting the patterns of your current self. The “new self” doesn't happen for quite some time, contrary to what pop cultured fitness gurus say.
It takes guts, time, determination and community to become relentlessly consistent with your movement patterns. It's just the cold hard truth. If it's hard, then it's worth it. If it's easy, then we don't appreciate it as much. Sure, there's some truth about things coming easy because it's “meant to be”, but that doesn't mean there isn't work involved.
After getting involved with your own life you then start to put in the time and forget about what other people say or think about you. Because it may seem a little narcissistic to think of yourself first, you may want to flush that BS down the toilet. Working on yourself means that you have the self-worth to be something and do something you've never done before.
To conclude this post, becoming relentlessly consistent with your movement patterns will happen and it will come to those who put in the time. You Got This is something I say a lot because it's something we don't say enough to ourselves. So when the skies are gray and the mood is dark, tell yourself You Got This and get one round done of today's WOD. Then when you feel like you don't want to do anymore, challenge yourself to do one more rep or better yet, one more round.
You Got This!
