Main Ingredient of the Miracle Comeback

The only way a miracle comeback is possible is if you #getcrushed first. #gettingcrushed is a prerequisite for every miracle comeback. #gettingcrushed is the opening chapter of every story that features a miracle comeback. No #gettingcrushed, no miracle comeback.

Miracle comebacks are stories of extreme lows and high, the equivalent of Great Lakes climate. The extreme high of a miracle comeback needs the extreme low of #gettingcrushed. There is no magic formula that guarantees a miracle comeback from #gettingcrushed but every miracle comeback has several ingredients. The main ingredient is a radical transformation of mindset. A reversal of fortune is made possible only with a reversal of mindset. The psychology of the miracle comeback starts at the top, inside the mind of #thecrushed. Miracle comebacks work in one direction – top down, not vice-versa.

The most compelling change mentally that ignites the ‘miracle comeback mindset’ is ‘changing the channel.’ #gettingcrushed happens when negative emotions are not channeled into positive physical force. But when you change the channel, you channel all those nasty emotions into pushing and pulling heavy weight, resulting in #shapelymuscles and less fat.

The good news about miracle comebacks is that anyone can put their mind to it. The bad news is that #gettingcrushed is easier than the miracle comeback because it takes almost no effort. Dual meaning.

This excerpt is a recurring theme in the new book series, fourth & hell: seasons 1-5. Miracle comebacks are one of my favourite/favorite topics because there’s nothing better that proves to self and team that you’re never counted out of a fight until you count yourself out. On another note, here’s another top 100 Classic Rock back-to-basics workout song. The link is after my signature. The song is a masterpiece that works wonders right after you #getcrushed by a bar that, even on its best days, can be your worst enemy if you don’t put your mind to it.
