Here’s a good start:
“Fate whispers to the warrior, ‘
You cannot withstand the storm.’
The warrior whispers back,
‘I am the storm.’
” – Unknown
NOW do the above and at the SAME TIME.
Calm the *frickers* Down!
RELAX. TALK TO YOUR TEAM. TALK TO YOUR CUSTOMERS. TALK TO YOUR WIFE. LISTEN TO YOUR KIDS.
A true warrior at times can have many weaknesses… it is tough to do both, but both we must do!
Walk with purpose but stop to see the sun rise!
Can’t Quit, Not Dead!
I love this saying I stumbled on…
CAN’T QUIT, NOT DEAD!
I also stumbled on this fun fact:
When doing 26.2 marathons people quit
in order the LEAST
in mile 1 and mile 26
Mile 1 makes sense… but mile 26? When they are the most tired.. NO AT THAT POINT THE MIND TAKES OVER THE BODY, they can ‘will themselves to the end.’ We don’t quit as humans in the beginning or the end…
So when is it the HARDEST, WHEN DO MOST PEOPLE QUIT…
THE 20TH MILE.
That’s when the body beats the mind. You are physical beat, but still have a long ways to go. So you mentally and physically quit, we can no longer see THE VISION.
Team, leaders, that is why we must always discuss the vision. It is easier to QUIT than finish. Our life, our jobs, CHANGE is TOUGH. NEGATIVITY, FEAR, SELF DOUBT, FAILURE, WEAKNESSES… OVER AND OVER AGAIN UNTIL WE FINISH.
Also at MILE 20… THAT IS WHEN WE NEED TO CHEER EM ON… THAT IS WHY people that LOVE OTHERS IN THE MARATHON NEED US THE MOST! In life and in the race!
THIS WEEK… WHERE ARE YOU AT AT WORK IN LIFE IN THE 20TH MILE… and those you impact! Encourage them, heighten their motivation…
MILE 20 THIS WEEK!
