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.
