What motivates you to get out there on a daily basis?
On a daily basis, I try to find all good reasons to run. I love running, but I am human and I have weaknesses.
After a very emotional day yesterday, today I failed to run no more that 0.7 of a mile and turned back and walked home…
Why do I need to feel so accomplished every day?
On a daily basis, we are all confronted with these 4 questions, I believe, we all need to be able to answer these questions on a daily basis.
- How do I get myself out do to what I want to do?
- Why do I want to want to do what I do?
- Who is so much better than me, and does that help me? Who is influencing me to be the best I can be
- What is preventing me from me being my best every day?
After the past 2 months, 7 weeks ago I ran my second and best Boston Marathon, which is one of many accomplishments on my wall….since I have experienced a lack of motivation. Most who know me think am ultra-motivated; I have never been ultra-motivated, it is truly the people around me that inspire and motivate me, at all levels.
Today, I was inspired by my stepdaughter as I coached her to her first ever track workout…exactly the same reason why the bonds I have made with the people in my life mean more than any result I ever had.
I encourage you to not only embrace your process but more importantly the people involved.
