  • What Now?

    Rachel3

     

    Now that regionals is over, my off season begins. It is always a good experience and always a journey for myself. I am always learning and growing. I've been doing Crossfit for 3 years now. 2016 was also my third year at regionals. Yes, my first year doing Crossfit, I went to regionals. My first year at regionals in 2014 was unbelievable. It was nerve-wracking and exciting. I was a rookie and had just learned a lot of movements in Crossfit. I wasn't expecting much from myself out on the floor but I was ready to see how well I could move with the girls. My background in sports has helped me a lot in Crossfit. I have done gymnastics, track and field, pole vault, cross country, wrestling, power lifting and bodybuilding. My background is not an excuse. I've realized how bad in shape I was, despite all the sports I've done. I was like starting all over from scratch but I loved it! The challenge is what I enjoy. I've been an athlete all my life and I love the feeling and craving to be better. 2016, regionals in Dallas, which was my third year goes to prove I am not ashamed to say that I was a little disappointed. My dreams is to make it to the Games one day. And maybe I had my hopes a little too high, but once again I experienced all my weaknesses. I WILL continue to work on them. Like I always tell my coach Marcus, some day's I'm the hammer and some days I'm the nail. BUT, what really opened up my eyes was on the first day I was down to 30th place and all I could think about was to pick it back up. On the second and third day I went back up 15 spots. That had to say something? I didn't leave angry after all, I was proud of myself. Who knew I could jump back up to top 20? This is not the end of me, this only makes me more hungry!

  • Feedback

    This is one of my favorite new things. The art of feedback is one of the toughest lessons but as you approach giving/ receiving it with openness and no emotion, it becomes easier.

     

    What feedback is, is this:

     

    Context- Impact-Commitment

     

    Context: What was seen or said.

     

    Impact: What was the impact it had on you? Only you. (No 'I feel'). How did what was done directly impact you? Be honest.

     

    Commitment: What is the commitment you are making to the person you are giving feedback to? (consider this: you care enough to tell the other person, with love, what was done).

     

    I see a lot of conflict that could be resolved if you simply take your emotion out. When you do that you can have empowering moments with whoever you are giving feedback to. This is how we get better in life and personal or business relationships.
