Motivation will only take you so far
Wednesday, May 19, 2010
I was asked to write a short paragraph about why I am participating in Cancer Research UK Race for Life to raise money for breast cancer research.
At the beginning of this year, I made yet another commitment to myself to get fit, become healthy, and maybe even lose a bit of weight. I took a look at what my motivations were, and what has stopped me in the past.
What I have discovered is that for me, having the motivation to do all these things will only take me so far. It is not enough for me to want to do this for myself, I needed a reason that was BIGGER.
So, I signed up for the Race for Life.
Breast Cancer Research is an area that I do take an interest in. I don't know of any single person who has not been affected in some way by it. Whether it be personal, a friend, a family member, a co-worker. This is why I chose to take part in the Race for Life.
