Passion By – CrossFit Lisbeth

Passion is scary. Frightening. Dangerous.

Many people are so scared of their passion that they keep it clamped down tight, hogtied, because they don’t know what to do with it. They are afraid of how out of control they might feel. They’re afraid of their very own power. They try to play “cool” . . .

Don’t be one of those people.

If you love to deadlift, say it. If you love CrossFit, say it. If you love someone, tell them. If you secretly really like rowing and you’re afraid everyone will make fun of you for admitting it, just MTFU and say it. If you love your job (or anything), don’t be afraid to say it — because most likely, people already know. It shows on your face, in your smile, in the madly enthusiastic way you greet the world every day.

Having passion — true passion — for anything is so exciting to behold, so thrilling and intoxicating to the human spirit, that we get a contact “high” off other people’s passion. And it fuels us to do more. (Or it should, if we can keep our ego and our envy in check.)

So don’t waste your life being “cool” — be a passionate fool. For CrossFit, for love, for anything. Life is way too short to do or be anything less.
