Greediness can be a deterrent towards meeting goals.
We win a race or hit a PR, and instead of indulging in the success, we want more.
We get greedy. We get excited, seeing new possibilities.
It’s easy to fall into the trap, but whenever a breakthrough occurs, the reaction shouldn’t be to drive forward but to take a step back and assess where you actually are.
When you are somewhere you haven’t been before, your body doesn’t need you to press down on the gas further, it needs to step back and absorb what you’ve done.
We are our most vulnerable when we are reaching new heights. The prospect for success is at its highest. Don’t let the excitement blind you to what you’ve done.
In any endeavor, success begets greed.
Celebrate the small stuff.
Respect the work and effort it took to reach that performance, rest, and then get back to work.
Until next time,
