I turned in a personal best Saturday. I ran my fastest 5k yet, 23:10. It is funny that winning in these races doesn't matter.....it is competing against myself! When you sit back and think about our daily lives we do this a lot. We compete against ourselves. I truly believe that self motivation is what leads to personal success.
I didn't get that statement from someone who is a so called expert. I truly believe it, and it is so simple! So are you self motivated? If your not these might be the reasons.
- Lack of confidence - If you don’t believe you can succeed, what’s the point in trying?
- Lack of focus - If you don’t know what you want, do you really want anything?
- Lack of direction - If you don’t know what to do, how can you be motivated to do it?
My wish for you today is simple. I hope that you find what it takes to be self motivated. My motivation lately is to be healthy. I will take my competition against myself further than ever next Saturday as I run the Palo Duro Canyon 15K....that is 9 miles....and the last two are all up hill! If I put confidence, focus, and direction all together on that day I know that I will be successful. Good luck in the daily competition against yourself!
