Day 47 Dropping 100 | I.O.U. to The D.C. Mindset

This week I spent a day n Boston, was fortunate to visit CrossFit New England, where some of the biggest names in the sport of fitness (CrossFit) have or are training, including the fittest woman in the world; Katrin Tanja Davidsdottir.
If you have an I.O.U. mindset, that can be a good thing if you apply a D.C. point of view.

#PJDROPPING100, www.FreshNFitCuisine.com, and www.CrossFitFayette.com are about more than just a journey, great food, and a place to exercise.  It's not so much about what one can accomplish, but rather what one can give.

Think about this: Your Integrity, Optimism, and Unity mixed with your Dedication and Compassion builds you and others on so many levels enriching all aspects of your life and those around you.

I love CFNE's "CREED" and share it with you now:

I will do the right thing regardless of who might know it.  I will live the life that others strive for.  I will be a hero.  Be a role model.  I will take stands and do what others won't because it is right.  I will be honest and open to myself and others.  

I will be loyal to my family, friends, coworkers, and teammates.  I will put others first regardless of circumstance.  I will give my comrades the benefit of the doubt.  I will live a life of pride with humility.

I will keep an open and positive mind.  I will focus on what I can control and ignore what I cannot.  I will recognize the silver lining in seemingly negative situations.  I will expect adversity, and when it shows up I will overcome it.  I will flex my gratitude muscles; reminding myself of the opportunities, pleasures and abundance in my life.

I will work hard.  I will commit everything I have to achieving my goals.  I will succeed.  I will never quit.  I will constantly look for ways to grow and develop.  I will pursue excellence in every facet of my life.  I will not take the easy way out.  I will go the extra mile, lead from the front and raise the standards and expectations of myself and those around me.  

I will be selfless.  I will be respectful.  I will be caring.  I will recognize the strengths in others and treat them as they wish to be treated.

The above "CREED" was an eye opener for me.  It made me think of all the grace in my life.  I offer a public apology and ask forgiveness to all in my circle of influence that have not experienced the above from me.  I am far from perfect and am committed to the above CREED. Success is going from good to better, and from better to best. Strive for perfection and settle for excellence I like to say.  I encourage you to implement the above into your life and remember to be better today than you were yesterday.
