“You can’t build on top of success you don’t acknowledge.” - Dallas Travers
There’s a dark side to being so driven.
We can be so focused on constantly improving that we can forget to look back. And acknowledge where we came from. I bet we can all relate to a time where we landed a PR lift, or a raise at work… where we were psyched, but only for mere seconds. Before we know it, we’re already thinking, “what’s next?” The finish line always moves.
It’s not wrong to be passionately driven.
That’s not where the harm comes from.
The harm comes when we don’t celebrate our victories.
We aim to live in a state of true “blissful dissatisfaction”. Grateful for every experience that comes our way, all the while in a fiery pursuit of the next best version of ourselves. Think of it less as a “pat on the back”, and more of a foundation that we build on. to build upon. As the quote above teaches us, we can’t build on top of success we don’t acknowledge.

Workout [30:00 - 50:00]
It is the coach's responsibility to bring the energy in the room for the workout. This may be the most important job of the coach, to make the class fun. There should be a big loud countdown to start the class, and every member should hear their name loud by the coach. This lets the member know the coach is watching them, and also creates a good feeling by hearing their own name. The coach should work the room and there should be no doubt, if someone walks in the room in the middle of the workout, who the coach is.

Community Building [50:00 - 60:00]
Use this time to give the class a talk on how we should eat, move, think, connect, or sleep.
Or this could be a time for the coach to make 1-on-1 connections on a deeper level.
This may be some of the most important minutes of the entire class. Build your community here.
