WLC: Finishing Strong, Final Raffle & Post Measurements and WOD



For those of us heading into week 7 of an eight week Challenge, I want to pose a question that we can think on over the final 10 days and beyond the challenge:  how’s my attitude right now?

attitude-lou-holtzLast week Pete wrote a great blog post on “Consistency” (make sure you read it if you haven’t already).  If you embrace what he says then I can almost guarantee that your attitude is where it needs to be to finish this challenge strong.  Finishing strong requires your mind to be in the right place.

If you are not excited about finishing strong or if you are hanging out in the past (aka the last 6 weeks of the challenge – especially if you haven’t done as good on the challenge as you hoped) then my guess is your attitude and mindset is wrong.  Remember YOU have the power to change it.  Decide to be “present” where your negative self-talk can be obliterated by a choice and success can be ever-flowing.

My hope is that this challenge has taught you something, that you have gained insight in an area of your life that you didn’t have before.  If so than the Challenge was a success no matter what the final score on the board may show.



rafflelogoFor this Challenge we aren’t focusing on scores and an overall winner of the game, but instead on the 56 days (opportunities) to make choices to build the 7 Habits in our lives.  Along with the intention of carrying those habits we found helpful into life post challenge.  We recognized that for some people, posting a score feels like they have something hanging over their head and at times this pressure made it worse.  So we wanted to offer an environment where choices where made because the person wanted to make them not because they “had” to make them – only time will tell to see if this was indeed helpful.  That being said although there will not be a 1st, 2nd or 3rd Place Prize Winner – we will certainly acknowledge those you posted the tops scores along with increasing their chances of winning the final raffle because it is noteworthy and amazing what they accomplished!

Here are the details for the Final Raffle and it will require you to be spot on for the lat 10 days of this Challenge.
