Experiencing Something New

Attend my first Powerlifting meet as a spectator.

I must admit I was nervous about attending a Powerlifting meet due to personal insecurities about my athleticism and appearance. Sometimes we all can feel a bit nervous when we want to venture out and it’s easy to think of reasons why we can’t do something rather then why we CAN.

I was speaking with my brother recently about my passion for fitness and why I have never ventured into training people or competing. My excuses were all B.S. Most all had to do with my perception of what people would think.

Now if you know my brother just imagine his “Zenness” — he said “If you keep waiting, thinking you have to look a certain wait to follow your passion then you will waste your life. Shoot if you feel you don’t look the par – then perform above par and shock them all.”

Today I took the first step towards competing in a Powerlifting meet by viewing one as a spectator. The event is very straightforward and I think with some dedicated training I’ll be ready to compete by this summer.
