Why We Practice Bright Spots

May 25, 2022

Motivation means desire.
The science of motivation is the science of success. That’s why I study motivation as much as I study exercise technique and nutrition.
As a professional coach, I know the selection of exercises is secondary to your desire to perform them.
And here’s what we know about motivation:
  1. Success has to happen before you’ll become motivated.
  2. Success has to keep happening.
  3. We don’t always recognize success when it happens. We’re pretty hard on ourselves.
Good gyms provide access.
Great gyms provide success.
That means we prioritize our Bright Spot & PR board over a scoreboard, we track our progress in SugarWOD in order to measure how far we’ve come, and we take five minutes every week to reflect on the good in our lives.
The practice of thankfulness doesn’t come naturally to anyone. That’s why we call it a practice: It’s hard and we don’t feel like doing it. Then we feel better once we have.
Bright Spot Friday is our practice of thankfulness.
Every week in the Veneration Tribe private Facebook group, we post our Bright Spots: things that went right, things we’re celebrating and little wins from the week. Bright spots aren’t always directly workout related, but practicing gratitude and thankfulness is an exercise.
The first time, you’ll be reluctant to post your Bright Spots. “I don’t really know these people that well. They don’t want to hear about my life.” Or “I don’t want to share all my personal stuff.” This is normal and true for every one of us.
That’s exactly why each and every week our team kicks off Bright Spot Friday by sharing theirs.
And I encourage you to follow with one tiny little Bright Spot. Make it workout related to start if that’s easier.
What did you do right or do best or do for the first time this week?
Share them with the group. We’re all family here. It’s a safe place.
Look within and start your weekend happy.

We want to get to know you, understand your goals, and team up to create an action plan to overcome your struggles.
It all starts with a conversation.
