So I hope everyone had a great time off with family and or friends...The Easter bunny may or may have been a friend or foe.. that all depends on if you over indulged, under indulged or restrained!!
Challenges in life come in all shapes and eggs. MY one client had just one, the biggest in his life.. I had mentioned prior to his journey leading up the hardest event in the world (apparently it ranks top 5 as all 5 are just as hard).Seeing him beaming this morning as if he was a new man, feet are pretty trashed. But what would you expect to run over 270 km over 6 days and enduring 51 degrees in the hot Saharan Desert!
I cannot be prouder of this man who not only started from scratch, but came back telling me he wish he could have pushed himself harder, as he was strong physically and cardiovascularly. the only set back was the sheer agony in his feet, forcing some power walking. I am giving tidbits of information as it isn't my story to tell, but to give you feedback on a great effort. Showing us that the mind is the thing holding you back from your dreams or allowing you to pursue them. No matter how big or small. Go for it!!!
This event is a catalyst for many other events, today two days later back in gym to train for the next event and much else surrounding. There is a documentary that will be released as the crew followed a lady who climbed Everest and did the same marathon this past week. The journey and the pain was recorded giving us insight what my client Andre and my boss Matt accomplished in a 45 minute spiel. This is not a email to go on and on on a man you haven't yet met, but to be inspired. We will set up a time to hear the journey.
I saw this great quote today: Always set big goals. Too often people tip toe around their goals not wanting to sound too bold and look foolish if they fail. I say be bold and look foolish. Who care? HOKA Kellyn Taylor.
The bottom line is to go for your dream, no matter how big or scary and pursue it! You might surprise yourself! You might inspire others! You might fail!! Who knows, but failing is part of the victory anyway so its not failure in the end!!!
I cannot urge you enough not to hold back and not to try hold back on your dreams, it is built to make you come alive!!
