Powerful Body, Powerful Mind

Hey gang,

Found this quote on my computer the other day (sorry not sure of the source) and it really resonated with me as it did the first time I read it:

Most people don’t come to us looking for a breakthrough in the way they think. However, one of the common side effects of CrossFit is a shift in your perception of what you thought was possible, and willingness to do things outside your comfort zone. Intensity doesn’t just come from what you’re able to do, but what you’re willing to attempt and how hard you’re willing to push. By practicing attempting things that are beyond what you think is possible, you get familiar with being unsure, uncomfortable, tentative, and even afraid, then doing it anyway. And don’t think this doesn’t translate to the rest of your life. As I saw written on the wall at CrossFit One World, “You are in CrossFit who you are in life.”

What is your take on that quote?  Has CrossFit shaped your mind or lifestyle as well as your body?
