I recently ran across an article from No time for Tact that I felt was appropriate to publish as we approach the New Year and we work on our “personal goals for 2015”:
“What is the worst that could happen? That’s the question I always ask myself when I am afraid to do something. If the worst that can happen is “I’m going to die”, then I don’t do it. But that is rarely a possible result of anything I am going to attempt. Usually the worst that can happen is that I won’t do as well as I hoped I would. Or I might embarrass myself. Is that so bad? Even if I do it badly, it is always better than I would have done if I had never attempted it. So I go for it.”
Ask yourself, “what’s the worst that could happen?” Then go for it. Besides, the worst that could happen rarely happens anyway.
While the message is universal, as it applies to DK Fitness we encourage you to apply this message to any class format you may have not yet tried – whether it is Yoga, Body Pump, TRX or Spinning. We believe the best exercising results are to “cross train”, whereby you incorporate both cardio and strength into your weekly routine. To repeat the message above: ask yourself, “what’s the worst that could happen?” Then go for it.
Katie and I wish all of you the very best in the New Year and beyond.
