“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass… It’s about learning to dance in the rain.” – Vivian Greene
Just start.
We’ve used this mindset in our strategy pieces inside workouts. As we transition from the double-under rope to the wallballs, let’s “just start”. If we can remove that moment of hesitation, we quickly find the first repetitions are always there. And we surprise ourselves with a set of 15 reps, when we could have bet our lives that we’d fail the first rep.

We just needed to get going, and not overthink it. What is powerful to realize, is that this concept applies outside the gym walls just as much as it does in it.

It is very common for us to await the “right moment”.
The right time to start reading again.
The right time to change jobs.
The right time to have that uncomfortable conversation.

We’ve all been here. Waiting for perfect.
Yet, we can all agree… that perfect, will never come. It doesn’t exist.

Instead of seeing all of the reasons that could go wrong, the quote urges us to take a different perspective. To see all the reasons why it could go *right*. To learn how to dance in the rain. To see, that today, is the best possible timing we could ever ask for.

If we can do that, we may actually realize that the perfect moment did exist after all.
