31 days ago I did a work out called Murph.
In order to complete Kokoro in September, I have to do this workout in under 70 minutes.
I did not even come CLOSE to hitting that goal the first time around.
And today, I did a Murph exercise again, and succeeded. eEven though right after I called one of my brothers to do it with me, I tried to find an excuse to not do it. But he showed up, and we worked together. I also made that decisions that the excuses weren’t going to hold me back, so even if my boy didn’t show up, I would complete the workout by myself.
Our mind will always look for reasons and excuses to get out of that which will force us to become better.
I went from over 80 minutes a month ago to 54 minutes today.
How did I shave 26 minutes off of my time?
I was really out of shape then, but I’ve been since training my mind and my body.
Why is this significant?
There’s a benchmark of what I want, which requires me to change and become something different.
It’s exciting to push myself past what I think I’m capable of, but it also scares me.
A month ago, my mile run was well over 10+, and now it’s under 9. My calisthenics are getting done in half the time from where I started.
Across the board, when I seek to improve one area with big goals, it in turn brings power and expansive capacity in other areas of my life.
Experts get that way because they were amateurs that practiced until they got it right.
I’ve likened this to fitness, but across the board, this can become a reality.
As I’ve been preparing my body, every time I slow down, I learn to push even harder.
* Do I have any current targets and outcomes set for myself?
* What are some goals that are big and excite me?
* Why do these goals matter?
We need to decide on goals that excite us to become bigger, and then practice, practice, practice. When we surround ourself with greatness, we will succeed.
