Blah, blah, blah….hurts like hell. Still. My foot hurts. A lot.
If you’re new to Lane 8, welcome. Earlier this year, there were quite a few Lane 8 blog posts discussing my foot pain and whether or not I could travel to Finland for the Master’s Track & Field World Championships.
And yesterday, after writing the post, “43rd”, it caused me to do several things:
- Be amazingly thankful
- Become more confident
- To feel like a victor, rather than a victim
- Pray for others to overcome their own struggles
The last one in particular is the one that seems most important.
When the going gets tough, the tough get going.
Fall down seven times, get up eight.
If you’re goal isn’t impossible, you’re not reaching high enough.
Carpe diem. It’s completely up to you. You are the CEO of YOU, Inc.
Yep, it’s gonna hurt like hell to reach your big dreams. Nothing worthwhile is ever easy. Once you realize that hard work is the way, the way gets easier. It doesn’t become easy, simply easier.
