Here’s an important lesson if…
You get overwhelmed with online business or you get frustrated because it doesn’t seem to be happening fast enough or you feel like giving up.
Yesterday, I ran my fastest five miles ever. (MY fastest, not THE fastest.)
I did my first 5 miles on Sept 9 of this year in 54:15
Yesterday’s was 43:43. More than 10 minutes difference.
Today, I got up and did NOT, DID NOT want to run. I wanted to go get a fried steak biscuit from Hardee’s and some hashrounds. (No, I don’t care if that doesn’t sound good to you!
Instead………. I put on my stupid running shoes. Slapped my iPhone to my arm and started out. I hated it so much I even stopped listening to audio. I felt like I was stumbling along. Semi-praying that a car would swipe me and put me out of my misery.
Finally, I made it back to the house… 46:52.
Just 3 minutes off my best time. And 7 something better than my worst time.
Here are the lessons…
Dang, I did not want to go run today. And you’d think that I’m glad I went. We’ll I’m still not thrill about it. Not sitting here patting myself on the back for remaining true. I’m tired!
If you’re going to serve a market and make money. Stay committed. Some days will be your fastest times and some days will stink. Some days you will love it and some days you will hate it. It’s just the way it is.
Yesterday was my fastest because I began running in July (total for that month = 9 miles). But I didn’t quit even tho every step felt like molasses.
Day after day you have to keep going. Go for the cumulative effect not just the current experience.
Unless I get injured or quit, I’ll never be as slow as I once was. There’s no going back.
Heck, today I felt AWEFUL and couldn’t do my once worse!
Once you start going forward there’s no going back. The first time is ALWAYS the hardest. Then it gets easier. Then you have a ROUGH day, but still can’t go back to not knowing how to upload, or post on WordPress or… you get the idea.
The Shirelles put it this way, “Mama said there’d be days like this.”
Mama and Shirelles were right. But who cares, even our bad performance today can’t compare to our very first move. We’ve been change for the better.
Keep running after your goal!!!
Success if NOT an Accident,
