I wrote the below blog in 2014 and it STILL rings true today…
What feeling exhausted taught me today.
So this morning after a 5am alarm call (I hate getting up before 6:30am, it’s not good for me)
I rolled out of bed, got ready and made it into work.
Standing there this morning as I waited for my double espresso to pour out I had all these feels
Of being overwhelmed.
I was feeling like I had so much to do and not enough time to do that, you’ve almost certainly felt this way before right?
I was thinking there’s just so much work to be done to make DH fitness into the life changing company it can be.
Also thinking about how much I want to be the best athlete I can be
As I sat there sipping my coffee, both these feeling were followed up with doubt, fear, overwhelm, dread and stress.
Right there and then I stopped myself in the moment that point where you catch yourself
And I said to myself…
…What if all I do is being better today than I was yesterday?
Let me say that again
What if all I do is be better today that I was yesterday?
Because let’s face that’s all we have, the now, the today
The past is over right, we can’t change that
The future isn’t really ours to own or change either.
Yeah we can plan, organise, dream etc.
But we really only have today and right now.
So instead of me thinking how can I improve all these areas in my life and stressing the f**k out about then, I just though…
What can I do today to be better?
An immense weight lifting from me,
So today I’m going to do one thing to inspire one person (might even come from this blog that’s why I wrote it)
Its might be during our team training and development session today
Or it might be a member of dh fitness…either way all I need to do to know I’m on point today is inspire and motivate 1 person.
As for my journey to being the best athlete I can be
All I’m going to do is go and train and give it the best i’ve got, nothing more and nothing less…That’s all I can ask of myself.
Thanks for reading the ramble
