Typically, we don’t have any themes running through our posts on a weekly basis. We let each author use their voice to explore different themes in being a complete athlete and person. It just so happened that each of our posts happened to align themselves with our mantra that we released this week. Without further ado, here’s the recap of our posts and other great reads found through the internet.
Our Reads This Week
We may not all quit, but we all have that little voice in our heads telling us too. The resistance is all around us, pushing us away from what it hard, what is meaningful, and ushering us to the status quo. The status quo is where mediocrity lives, it’s where quitters live. Quitting is never an option. Chad explores how this resistance starts, how to tame it, and why you must never quit if you’re pursuing something meaningful in life. Ever.
What’s it mean to be terrifyingly afraid of something and do it anyways? To face the unknown and attack it with full force not knowing what will come of it? I explore all themes in this piece.
What’s it mean to be a True Alpha? We talk about it on Show Me Strength all the time, but it is through this piece by Travis Smith that we see what being an alpha male is all about through a different perspective. It’s about being a force of positivity, having teammates backs no matter, and being a good person. Always.
We released our mantra this week. A set of values and principles that we here at Show Me Strength hope to embody. In conjunction with that release, Chad put together 10 badass videos each highlighting an aspect of our mantra.
