Do Hard Things

newpic
1. Things that are outside your comfort zone
2. Things that go beyond what is expected or required
3. Things that are too big to accomplish alone
4. Things that don’t earn an immediate payoff (training in offseason, etc)
5. Things that challenge the norm
People who accomplish memorable things are remembered because they did hard things, not because they accomplished something easy.

    You cannot expect improvement unless you push yourself. To see change, you must make a change. For me, it was using the free weights. I was intimidated and afraid at first, but now I bench press next to the boys with no problem. It was outside my comfort zone; now it is just what I do.

  3. I love this. Totally agree 🙂

    I’ve been trying to get the motivation to start exercising and taking better care of myself. Based on what you’ve said here I need to stop waiting for the motivation to strike and just get doing what I need to do. Thanks for the article.

    Also, thanks for stopping by my blog at Keyboardstrokesblog. I hope you will be blessed by what you read there.

  5. Totally agree. I am a truly, truly terrible runner. I’m much better at other stuff-like swimming, or learning French or whatever. But I chose to run because it’s so damp hard!

  6. Yes, “do hard things”! Awesome! The Trainer Boxing/Functional Training Club Hood River http://www.thetrainerhoodriver.com

  7. For me, the thing I need to push myself with is conditioning, all the core strength stuff. I Used to catch for flying trapeze but was never able to do enough of it to just use that as conditioning so had to push myself to do the less interesting bit.

  9. Hi Reece, thank you for following me. I shared this post on my facebook page because it really resonates with my personal philosophy. Runners, especially we amateurs, do need this kind of encouragement.

    Thank you!
