There’s a Little Something I Like to Call: THE SUCK THRESHOLD

In: Redefining Success

A few fun little facts you probably didn’t know about me:

  • I was Captain of the volleyball team.
  • Server of the Year.
  • Certified as a referee.
  • Played year round on a travel team to compete in regional tournaments.
  • And helped lead our team to the state final championships.

Another couple of fun facts:

  • I am only five foot three.
  • I also couldn’t even get the ball over the net to save my LIFE the entire first year. …Nor the second. My volleyball coach knew I had no natural talent and thought I would quit any day.

But I kept showing up.

And eventually I figured it out.

And because I was paying such close attention, once I passed the suck threshold, I catapulted straight into killer.

Because that is the benefit of being absolutely terrible at something, but going to war, anyway:

Eventually, skill kicks talent’s ass.

And eventually, not even being bad can prevent you from getting good.

What do you need to keep showing up to?

Sweating. (A lot.) Hustling. (As much as we can before insanity sets in.) And pushing people out of our way to achieve it. […]

Hear ye, hear ye, let it be known that I, Ash Ambirge, am officially in love with the SWEAT app. (If you also spend too much time at the computer like a hunchback homie, listen up!) For the longest time I was like: how in the HOPPING JALAPEÑO does someone exercise with an app? I […]
