Further explanation required? Maybe.
Wanted to add an insight to yesterday’s post, just so I can feel better about myself, and offer one of my secrets to help you in your own leadership and excellence journey.
Sharing the mile split times may have sounded, to some, like I was boasting. It is never the intent to boast. Ever!
If you knew how hard I’ve worked, for years, to learn pace and cadence, you would probably want to apologize for thinking, “This guy is full of himself”.
What I was really wanting to communicate (and I hope I’m doing it better today 🙂 ) is the encouragement to plant the seeds for impossible goals, and then have the patience and courage to see things through.
Overcome the setbacks, the criticism, the pain, the doubt, the fear.
It must be overcome.
This is one of the big lessons we don’t learn – patience, perseverance and tenacity.
We don’t, because, our goals aren’t big enough.
So, in summary, the secret is, “If your goal isn’t impossible, you’re not reaching high enough”.
Dream Big. Get There. Stay There.
Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
