The will to succeed has to be greater than the excuses you conceive

The JOMO on sugar. Pure cane joy.


The will to succeed has to be greater than the excuses you conceive.

What would happen if i never ate another dessert in my life?

Possibly the same thing that has happened since i made a commitment to never drink alcohol again.

Those Take 5 candy bars are moving from a tempting and wonderfully sweet treat to the devil in disguise.

Sugar is the enemy like alcohol is the enemy.

Is selling ourselves short a personal choice?

Is it a personal choice to sell ourselves short, or is it society’s fault?

After having accepted that i’m not going to 2015 Worlds this week in France, a revelation this morning…

Began training today for the 2019 World Championships. i’ll be 60. Today’s easy jog reminded me of something. Prior to the injury, i was in the best shape of my adult life.

Telling you that to testify this is true…

Everyday Courage Has Few Witnesses

All Proof Destroyed?
All Proof Destroyed?

“Everyday courage has few witnesses. But yours is no less noble because no drum beats for you, and no crowds shout your name.” Robert Louis Stevenson

Maybe you believe in yourself, or maybe you don’t.

The more days that you go without quitting what you you really want to do, the stronger your belief will become.

There really is no other way to change.

You simply must have resolve. A goal is not enough.

You must want this for the rest of your life.

Remember, your everyday courage will have very few witnesses.

How’s that sound?

What can we learn from defeat, loss, failure?

Many things to be sure. But only if we try hard to learn from setback. And only if we listen. And only if we then try again.

Are you listening? And I don’t mean, “Sleigh bells ring, are you listening”.

I mean, are you the kind of person that will pick yourself up after you fall?

Are you the type of person that finds a million ways to stay motivated?

You see, getting motivated is one thing. What makes winners is staying motivated.

Oh wait, you want to tell me something, right?

Okay, go ahead.

“Jeff, you don’t understand, my life is hard. It’s very difficult.”

Here’s a Christmas gift for you, and it is given with the most hopeful and sincere intent – “No one has it easy. Period. End of story.”

This may scare some people off, and I would hate to see that happen, but I can’t allow myself to make excuses.

How can I teach our son (9), that it’s okay to make excuses?

What’s Impossible?

“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small people who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s not an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary… Impossible is nothing.” Adidas

“If your goal isn’t impossible, you’re not reaching high enough”.   – jeff noel
