Wants and Needs

Lisbeth CrossFit, Essays, Fitness, Life

People often know what they want, but not what they need.

They want a hot body, but they need discipline—in the gym and in the kitchen.

They want a bodyweight-plus snatch, but they need someone to help them get strong and to teach them how to really pull themselves under the bar.

They want a great-paying job, but they need to figure out what talent they have that is worth that money.

And not in a “Oh, that poor thing” way. You don’t want to be the lost kitten on a rainy night. That stuff never lasts. Be the “Holy hell, I can’t wait to see her again” gal. Yeah, that’s a lot hotter.

It’s really hard to know what you need.

Often, you need helpers to guide you through what you need in order that you may get what you want. Sometimes, in the gym, it’s the coaches who are those helpers. And, sometimes, it’s the other people lifting those weights with you.

So how about you?
