After a long day I sat down at my computer to check emails, Facebook, ect. I ran across this question,
“What would you do if you were not afraid?”
This question really stuck with me. When I went to bed last night it was the last thing on my mind. I have been pondering this question all night and day. I looked back at the past couple of weeks. I started to think about the teams last few workouts and races. I even thought of my own running and life.
It is funny how most people want to do so many things in their lives and never do. People want to play professional ball, attend college, become doctors, and run a new Personal Best. Honestly the list could go on and on. We will always have a desire to go the extra mile, but do not. In my opinion, we develop excuses for our one true fear. We come up with some pretty crazy excuses to ease our minds and bury our fears deeper into the ground.
“What are you afraid of?”
“Why is it so hard to each your goal?”
“What are your excuses?”
Think about these questions. I know each and everyone wants to do something great. So do it. Stop making excuses. The excuses are not helping you. They are inhibiting you and your full potential.
I don’t want to say much. I mainly want you to ponder these same questions. Every goal you set is obtainable. Do not let fear be your battle. You cannot be afraid to lose. Because sometimes loosing gets you what you have always wanted.
Tell me what you are going to do this year, because you will not be afraid to do it!
