Following up on yesterday’s post on learning from challenging moments in our lives, here’s a post about Mat Fraser’s comeback after a devastating physical injury.

“We need our hardships and setbacks, it makes us stronger. Every setback is a set up for a comeback. Use it to come back better than before. Celebrate the adversity. Don’t focus on what you can’t do, find love in what you GET to do. Let it hold your arm up in triumph!”

𝙈𝙤𝙫𝙚𝙢𝙚𝙣𝙩 𝙞𝙨 𝙖 𝙂𝙞𝙛𝙩 In CrossFit, we get to see the power of the human spirit. The innate nature to triumph over hardship, to show resilience, and to fight through pain and discomfort are my favorite things about CrossFit. As much as we focus on moving forward and how we compare to others, please don’t forget how far you have come and that the ability to move is a gift. On the left is @mathewfras after he broke his back in two places and had surgery to put 2 plates and 6 screws on the vertebrae in his lower back. Doctors told him he would not be active again let alone train and compete as and with the #FittestonEarth. On the right is Mat after cleaning 380lbs at The 2019 CrossFit Games! We need our hardships and setbacks, it makes us stronger. Every setback is a set up for a comeback. Use it to come back better than before. Celebrate the adversity. Don’t focus on what you can’t do, find love in what you GET to do. Let it hold your arm up in triumph! . 🌷 💀 ⏳ 𝘎𝘙𝘐𝘛 | 𝘊𝘏𝘈𝘙𝘈𝘊𝘛𝘌𝘙 | 𝘎𝘙𝘈𝘛𝘐𝘛𝘜𝘋𝘌 | 𝘚𝘌𝘙𝘝𝘐𝘊𝘌 _______________________________________________ #TheSisuWay #healthiswealth #vulnerabilityisstrength #strengthisachoice #getupstrong #beunconquerable #mindfulwarrior #unconquerablesoul #sisu #crossfitgames #matfraser #mathewfraser #hwpo #hardworkpaysoff
