Sometimes we do hard things for the only reason being they are hard. If you get to 32 up downs or 80 Scorpion Dry Docks you might think, “why am I doing this?” Because you are not training for easy things. You are training for hard things. And Flea reminded me this week that the hard thing we’ve been preparing for might be happening right now. Do not give up when things get hard. Don’t give in to disease or depression or tiredness or hunger or hurt or pain. Be victorious. And win.

Post beat down assignment (non negotiable): Reach out to a fellow pax and humble brag how many rounds you completed. Tell him what you are going through in life and find out what he is going through. Then pray, meditate, write a song, hold some crystals, light a candle (you do you brother) about what you talked about. And lastly, think about what your community needs right now and set out to lead them to it.
