You ever had that feeling that you were scared??
Monday, January 02, 2012
Have you ever imagined doing something good for yourself, but that immediate fear kicks in and says "there's no way you can do that"?
Prime example: I've been brainstorming my goals for 2012, because every year like millions of people my main goal is to "lose weight". Well this year I want to have a goal that is not focused on a number but will benefit my health and strength (mental physical). I came upon an old dailySpark post called 5 Fun Fitness Goals for the New Year and the goal that jumped out at me was "Complete a 5K"! I thought to myself you've walked 3 miles many times how about running a 5K??
That's when the doubt, fear, negative self talk kicked in immediately.
So now as I type this blog to the world I must admit I like that feeling of being uncomfortable and a bit scared when it comes to taking risk for the benefit of saving my life and maybe a million more just from motivating others.
And not only that, but this fear and self doubt I have will be the center-stone that I focus on as I cross the finish line. This fear and self doubt will be my motivation and ultimate push to the finish line so that I will no longer have this self doubt; but have Courage to take that leap, jump, or hop to the unknown to see how far I can go.
My research now begins for training and then I will put my goal (Run a 5K) in black and white with a date.
*Reminder I have never been a runner
