We are capable of a lot more than we think.
How many times have you let your Little Voice take you out before you even start something?
When was the last time you gave up midway through something because you didn’t think you could go on?
I’ve never ran 12km before. I’ve only ever ran 6km four times, and that was all last month. 3.77km around the block is about all I have the patience for!
For people who run those distances all the time, it’s probably ‘nothing’’ to them to run that distance. I mean, sure, we walk that far often in a standard day at work or while travelling and exploring. But for most of us, the amount of focused physical and mental effort required to run like that is less tantalising than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.
Here’s the thing though–have you actually tried it? And if so, what was it that stopped you from finishing? The Great Trickster–our very convincing mind–has hundreds of good reasons why we shouldn’t put ourselves through strenuous effort, or to step up to a task that we would consider beyond our capability.
There is hope!
With a good enough reason ‘WHY’ we can endure a lot more than we think. And we don’t need to do it alone. With the help of a coach, a buddy, a mentor or somebody whose trodden that path before us, and armed with a purpose that’s bigger that ourselves, we can achieve remarkable feats.
It’s time for more #study, more #exercise, more #focus, more #miles, more #sit-ups, more #listening, more #loving, more #giving, more of whatever it is that is necessary to move you closer to your goals.
If you don’t have a goal to strap on to this rocket ship of your’s yet, then let’s talk.
