Push yourself a little harder!

Well, I guess since I started running again today it's time to start blogging. (That's when I do my best thinking)

 Are you ever frustrated when you get really excited about something and not everyone around you that you share it with is as excited?  I know you can relate.

One thing I've learn in my experience of working with people on a daily basis is it's natural for others to not be up on what you are so you have to decide How bad do you want it??????  How bad do you want the extra income your shooting for?  How bad do you want your dreams to come true? How bad do you want time freedom?  How bad do you want it???????  Do you want it bad enough to deal with the rejection by saying "shucks, maybe next time" (that's how my 4 year old deals with being told no)  Are you really going to stop sharing the gift of time, freedom, and finance with others just because a handful of people tell you no??????  I certainly hope not because you are worth more than that!!! You deserve better than that!!!!!!! 

Today was the first day that I've ran in awhile. I hurt my back in the fall and just never got back to the pavement.  I got up this morning and believe me when I say, I was so tempted not to go. It was cold and dreary after raining  all night, I kept waking up all night so I didn't sleep all that great and Jack had pre-school (2 hours and 20 minutes of alone time for me) so I was fighting with myself whether to go for that run or take a nap??????? hmmmmmm  

Obviously, I took the run and I'm so glad I did.  I decided to run 3 miles and of course I ended up walking a few blocks of that being in the out of shape that I am.  What I did do though was every time my body wanted to stop from the fatigue and aches I told myself "just one more block", when I hit that goal I told myself "just another half a block".  I kept pushing myself a little bit harder.  Will I regret it in the morning? Yes, probably but was it worth it????  Absolutely!

I share this with you because I know that when we each want something bad enough we will find a way to make it happen regardless of how disappointing it can be at times or how hard it can be.  I know that the reward is always worth the challenge.  I also believe that anytime we're working to improve ourselves or our situation that the adversary is going to do everything he can to stop you from making it happen so I challenge you PUSH YOURSELF A LITTLE HARDER!  Set your goals a little higher! You deserve the success and rewards that are just ahead of you!
