Today was a day of TRIALS. I did things that tested me, both physically and mentally. With these tests came huge accomplishments, but in the moment, I was not feeling successful. First was running my first 10k on the treadmill. I set the goal for myself but it was HARD. I could have cut myself slack, come up with excuses to quit, and just given up, but I decided to keep my promise to myself. The rest of my day was full of obstacles that I almost let get the best of me. I was feeling frustrated, let down, and defeated until a good friend reminded me of something I shared just a few days ago on this very platform. Just because things aren’t perfect, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go for it. I had to take a breath, get out of my own way, and realize that just because things weren’t going to plan, didn’t mean I should allow myself to miss the opportunity to grow in my business.
Then to just add to the feels of the day, on my way home, I was listening to the RISE podcast with @msrachelhollis and her guest @johncmaxwell and he said something that resonated with me HARD. He’s said there are two kinds of people, whiners and winners. The difference between the two is that whiners want to feel good before they work, winners want to work to feel good. Have you been living as a winner, or letting yourself be a whiner?
After a VERY long day, I am exhausted but feeling proud of myself and grateful for my support system that is always there to help me shape up.
