Slam Dunk

Daily Mindset
**"Failure is the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently." – Henry Ford**

Failure has a negative connotation.
That it’s a mark against us – a scarlet letter.
That it’s something we want to avoid at all costs.

Individuals such as Henry Ford offer to look at failure in an entirely different way.
"What can this failure teach me?"

Because failure hurts, we can get defensive. When it happens, we don’t want to think about it, no less talk about it. It’s embarrassing, and we find ourselves wanting to forget it ever happened in the first place.

But if we can push our ego out of the way, and dissect the failure from every angle, with sincere humility every step of the way… the opportunity is incredible. In a self-protective response, our mind can push us away from this uncomfortable place. But it’s where we truly learn, to come back to try again this time far more equipped for victory.

How can we turn the "worst thing that could have happened", into the "best thing that could have happened?".

Slam Dunk (AMRAP – Rounds and Reps)
200 Meter Run
15 Slam Balls (30/20)
3 Rope Climbs

* Moving quickly through the slamballs isn’t as important about moving well through the rope climbs
* Breaking these into 1-3 quick sets could be a good option to maximize efficiency on the rope
* While we’ll go steady singles on the rope, let’s think about one of these three options on the ball:
* 1 Set: 15
* 2 Sets: 8-7 or 10-5
* 3 Sets: 6-5-4 or 5-5-5
