Every Ironman or Half Ironman you compete in presents an opportunity to breakthrough or settle. The battle is real my friends.
There is a part of our mind that is merely concerned with survival it sends out messages telling us it’s okay to settle and play it safe. This keeps us comfortable and little risk is involved.
There is another part of the mind that wants more and challenges us to get the most out of our ourself. The problem is that we must risk failure and we often shy away from exploring these possibilities. Yes, by pushing your limits you can fail miserably…but you can also spread your wings and soar to new heights you never dreamed possible. The best part is this is now becomes your new reality.
Take risks. Prepare both your body and mind to makes these leaps. You WILL NEVER REGRET it once you BREAKTHROUGH.
Let me leave you with one of my favorite quotes:
“I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious” – Vince Lombardi
