Your Call To Action || Runner, take action
Experts agree.... its about the basics. We fail because often in life we don’t do them. We drift into a new popular sounding tool, shoe, sunglasses, socks because that marketing is so powerful. How can we resist?
A call to action makes it clear to potential customers which action to take next and helps remove friction in moving the user down the sales funnel.
And if you relate this to your running. Your friction is there… it’s the resistance to go out. The resistance to train as per the plan, or even the friction to follow a plan.
Therefore… its time to be creative: take out those crayons, or whatever you find and make at least three signs with your specific goal written on it. Make your own CALL TO ACTION.
And what will happen is, you are starting to create new pathways in your brain. Away from finding excuses not to run, the weather that just is never right, the muscles that just seem a bit too tight, the time that just isn’t enough.. what will happen is, that friction… will get a counterbalance. And the running practice is you hidden value proposition. By having relevant examples that you wrote that your subconscious will scan and pick up during the day, you get clarity. And the value plus clarity they overpower the distractions or anxiety you are experiencing. It will ensure that there is enough urgency for those 157 days to make the most out of them.
Hey and just to shine a bigger light on this topic… see we have been given these bodies, and as runners’ we are blessed. Success is predicated on what has been entrusted.
So we should ask ourselves, have you been faithful with what you have been given? In God’s economy, success is being faithful. Galatians 6:4-6 4 Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves alone, without comparing themselves to someone else, 5 for each one should carry their own load.

That picture in your minds eye if that is where the difference takes place, if that is changed… all improvement can and will occur. It is as simple as that. That’s what is meant by, you need to see it to believe it.
Don’t think it means you first need to physically see that race distance, or that new personal best. You need to see it in your minds eye. There're no limits to what your spirit can envision and possess.
You have the power, given to you by God, to control your thoughts and imagination. God designed you that way on purpose!
Change the image the footage you play on the movie screen of your mind, your imagination. ... That's what your imagination was created to do!

Discouraged Runner || Runner giving up
Have you ever felt discouragement? Sure you have. And tell me once you start thinking and mulling in that state of mind. What usually comes out of that thinking and mulling things over process?
Without knowing you I can answer that one. Usually negative thoughts. And little options, which lead to a confirmation that “it is hopeless”.
And that’s what we can avoid. It is so important if you haven’t listened to anything else I said before, or someone asked you to listen to it…. And you are doing this as a favor, not because you are really interested in the topic…these are the important steps to take.
1. Keep a success diary. Yes I know you are not 15 anymore. Doesn’t matter. Successful people have success diaries.
2. Stick around positive thinkers and optimists. Especially if they irritate you. And avoid the negative mindset crowd at all costs. Why well because they have a problem for every solution, don’t they? Even when I told this story about my cramp, I have had people tell me about the possible horror scenarios. And really, I don’t want to know.
3. Go back to the previous lesson, and work on your run mission statement. You did do that didn’t you? Or did you just listen to the show and didn’t react.. no of course you wrote some sentences down, good for you.
4. And then a beautiful poem: Breath darling, this is just a chapter, It’s not your whole story.
5. 2 Corinthians 5:7 for we walk in faith, not by sight.
Whow, that is such a inspirational verse. That alone is enough for me. Disappointment and discouragement is a normal part of life that everyone experiences. However, you do not have to feel discouraged in the face of setbacks. Developing a positive attitude, which takes time and reacting the way I described in the episode. So that when you face a challenge, can make you resistant to discouragement. See disappointment as an opportunity to recharge and refocus instead of a reason to feel bad. With some hard work and self awareness, you can foster a healthy, positive mentality

There are so many shows you could have chosen but, you came back to this one.. high five a smart move.
Summer is in full swing here… what a great season… this is the #noexcuses season, isn’t it? But if you had good, maybe EXCELLENT excuses in Winter, I suppose you have good ones in Summer too. Ok, those of you that live up north… I agree not running whilst a blizzard is on… I fully understand that… of course there is the treadmill…. Oh hang on I read this on twitter hate when I’m running on the treadmill for half an hour and look down to see it’s been 4 minutes.
I think I spent perhaps no more than 2 winters where I ran on treadmills. Too much ICE on the pavements, high risk of injury and that really sums up my running experience. Perhaps even worse, felt like an hour and I had hardly covered a kilometer… lol
As a runner, you spend a lot of time well, running. It’s normal that there will be times you are ready to go full of enthusiasm. And other days where… something is there.. something is holding you back.Crafting a “personal running mission statement” is a great way to capture your intentions in a succinct manner. This statement is centered specifically on your running practice, and it can inspire and energize you by emphasizing a process-focused attitude towards training.
Some mission statements will be a single sentence, while others may be as long as a paragraph. As you work to come up with this statement, reflect on the following questions and try listing the reasons you run.
What is it about running that I’m drawn to?
What do I hope to gain from running?
What are my strengths as a runner?
How does my running contribute to the greater good of my life, family and the world around me?
Running is all about attitude… so choose a good one. But how?
