Get your reps.

I ended Friday’s message with, “Trust your training. Believe in your strength.” I believe many people want and need to hear that right now.

Trust your training makes the assumption that you are training yourself. That you’re practicing the necessary skills, personally or professionally, that will shape your production and experience in the future.

Reminding yourself is good. But it’s not practice. Reading a book is also good. But it’s not practice. Practice is active, intentional, and on the edge of your ability. It’s work. If your practice is average, expect your skills to be too. Can you afford that?*

Discipline is the shortcut. Do the work.

*If you want give this question more specific personal relevance, attach it to an area of great meaning and importance in your life:

  • Can I afford to be average at controlling my anger as a coach?
  • Can I afford to be average at listening as a friend?
  • Can I afford to be average at dealing with fear during major adversity?

It’s up to you to apply this as it fits to your life, your desires, and your needs.
