Dearest You,

This is your conscience writing.

Your Cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, Stamina, Strength, Flexibility, Power, Speed, Coordination, Agility, Balance and Accuracy asked me to write this on their behalf.  Your Confidence and Inner Fire-breather got wind of it, and wanted representation as well.  They came to me with a concern and I drew the short straw (darn the straw draw, I always lose) so here I am writing this letter to address their joint complaint.

They would like it to be clear they are very happy with Your hard work of late.  They know You put all of your efforts into making them better, and are very appreciative of this.

However, they are tired of always being in the background.  They want to shine, be in the spotlight, get some recognition and share the glory.

On this front, they are unhappy with You.

You see, they wanted to make an appearance at the CrossFit Ontario Challenge this past July.  They were sure they were ready but once again Self-Doubt out voted them, and they had to sit back and watch as You didn’t compete.  No fame

They know Self-Doubt can be very convincing and often gets his way, but they just don’t think it’s fair.  Why should Self-Doubt be the only one getting airtime?  They have feelings too…dreams, aspirations, needs!

They have therefore taken drastic measure that they feel were necessary to get Your attention.  They, with the help of Confidence, have kidnapped Self-Doubt and are making the following demands:

  • they want Self-Doubt to keep his opinions to himself,  and not always over-ride the opinions of others
  • they feel decisions of great magnitude, such as going for PR’s and competing in athletic events, should be put to vote with majority wins, and not always fall to Self-Doubt’s influence
  • they would like their individual achievements celebrated instead of Self-Doubt always clouding these occasions

All parties are willing to negotiate however; they will not release Self-Doubt until they are guaranteed they will be fairly represented.

It is important for You to know that although is seems Guilt-Trip put them up to this, these demands are purely their own, and Guilt-Trip had no part in this.  Quite frankly, he’s just not that smart! 

To initiate discussions, they would like to put the Element CrossFit Challenge, coming next month, on the table for vote.  Let it be known that their vote is a unanimous “YAH” for all 10 members, plus guest votes from Confidence and Inner Fire-Breather.  The latter two feel badly about not stepping up for the CrossFit Ontario Challenge last month, and strongly endorse this vote as a means to make amends to the rest of the parties. 

Please consider the demands before You and take appropriate action.  Signing up today for this aforementioned challenge would be considered a sign of good will and greatly appreciated by the mentioned parties. 

Regards, Your Conscience
