There are no losers on the Broken Skull Challenge

About 5-6 weeks ago I was scrolling through the channels just seeing what was on, not really looking for anything and stumbled across Steve Austin’s, Broken Skull Challenge and became hooked. It is an obstacle course in the desert, during the summer, with some of the most physically challenging and grueling obstacles one can imagine. 8 people challenge each other and the obstacles to “win.” Each person comes to the course with a different background, skill set, physical training, and body style but each comes with the same mindset: full-on, bulldog, no holds barred, no retreat, win at all costs, all-out attack assault on each other and the course. While there is technically only one “winner” there are no losers because each person is giving 150% of themselves physically and mentally in the most physical assault ever placed on their bodies. There are also no losers in this MKMMA thing. Each person comes to the course with a different background, skill set, physical training, and body style but each person who has made it this far comes with the same mindset: full-on, bulldog, no holds barred, no retreat, win at all costs, all-out attack assault on the mental changes to become the new person they know they are meant to be. Yes, the old person is challenged but it is the 150% determination to win that prevails. Even those who have not made it this far are still far along than when they began so they have still won on some levels. Each person comes with different expectations and goals so they will take different experiences from this course, but there are no losers because everyone is farther than when they arrived. Just like the slide on the webinar Sunday, Handmaiden to Greatness, the kid stayed in the box and in staying he becomes an inspiration. We are all observers of greatness, the greatness of change that each person has made toward their future self and the awesome miracles we realize on that path. Og Mandino has a companion to the Greatest Salesman called The Greatest Miracle in the World and each and every person is their greatest miracle on their path of transformation because like the little girl said one time, “God don’t make no junk.”

    Indeed, each of us has made progress on our journey. We do not compete with each other, but only with who I was yesterday. Can I be better today? Am I better than when I started? Great linkage to the Broken Skull challenge. I enjoyed reading this.
