**“Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible to your approach.” – Tony Robbins**

We can’t always see what is ahead on the windy road. We don’t know if there will be a lightning storm, a massive oak tree blocking us, or maybe it’s road construction pushing a lengthy detour. All of which can cause a change in our planned arrival time.

Direction without flexibility is a recipe for disaster, trying forcing a path that may not be possible. Yet flexibility without direction is just as harmful, living like a leaf blowing in the wind.

It’s not a matter of if, but when, we hit the roadblock and will need to adjust our route. But the destination does not change. Dedicated to the “what” we’re after, but flexible in the how.

Today’s WOD

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 disassifaction”. 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 to build upon. As the quote above teaches us, we can’t build on top of success we don’t acknowledge.
