I have never been a believer in the “ everybody gets a ribbon” mentality. Yes I think it’s important for people to participate but in life there will always be winners and losers. And I think that’s an important lesson to learn. With that being said all of us are on a journey from one point to the next point, whether that is a scholastic journey, a financial journey, a fitness journey, etc. And as we complete each one of the steps on the way through our journey, I do think it’s important to recognize and acknowledge the fact that certain successes have been accomplished. In the gym obviously a PR is a personal record and obviously something to be happy about. But there are many other things to be proud of better accomplished to the gym. Things like improved range of motion, learning to keep a tight midline during the bottom of a squat if that was an issue always had, making sure that all the reps are truly counted and completed, pushing yourself to go to a smaller band on pull-ups instead of just staying with the same one you always use, making it to the gym when you want to sleep thought you were going to have the energy to do anything, and I can go on and on. On the first look this looks like it might be a “ get a blue ribbon for doing anything” notion. But that’s not true. This is celebrating each step forward on your journey to bettering yourself. This helps to keep you happy and driven while you’re in the gym. We all know that what you been in the gym for a while you don’t get PR’s on a daily basis. So the next time you do something in the gym that you’ve never done before, don’t blow it off like it’s not a big deal or that you know that other people have already completed it. This is your journey and these are your steps that you’re taking.
