I have been an athlete for 44 years.  I have always been a very competitive person but something that I never understood was how can you be competitive and "not care" about the outcome.  I blog about how the result is something that you can't control so not to worry about it.  But who trains for something for a long time and doesn't want to win?  I think the answer would be NOBODY!!  However, it took me probably 8 years to slowly figure out what it means to "not care" about the outcome.  It doesn't mean that you can't want to win whatever you are doing.  It doesn't mean it's not important or that you shouldn't visualize yourself winning or on the podium or in the job you are interviewing for.  But it's about putting your focus on the things that need your attention right now.  If your focus is only on the finish line, then you aren't able to do all the things you need to during the race.  If during the event you are thinking about what it will be like when you win, then you aren't concentrating on the tasks you have to do to do well in this event, let alone the entire competition.  "Not caring" means you need to focus on the "right now", not the "then".  "Then" is in the future and there are a BUNCH of variables that affect the outcome, and many that you will have ZERO control over.  And this applies even when you have worked and trained super hard for a long time.  So you put 100% of your focus into your RIGHT NOW.  This one rep you have to do, the one rope climb, the interview question, the math problem, whatever.  This moment RIGHT NOW is where the world exists.  You live here.  You exist here.  You need to fight/attack/compete here.  Put your energies and your attention into NOW.  Sure you can be on a plan to get to a certain point but you need to concentrate on all the steps that you are doing right now!  Right now is your NOW! :)

FEEL THE BURN!!!
