Monday Motivation - Getting Past The Pain

Monday Motivation

 

"The man who can drive himself further once the effort gets painful is the man who will win." — Roger Bannister


I have recently started to exercise, again, after a long time away from Girl Runninganything that would resemble exercise.  That is unless you consider lifting a fork full of food to my mouth exercise.

There are times in my work life that things get painful and I have the tendency to just stop because it would be more painful to continue.  You know something like picking up the phone and making a less than good news call to a client.

To overcome my shortcomings I need to push past my wanting to stop when things start to get painful and my body says to stop after one push-up.  Or my fear of making that less than good news phone call.

Some of you may know who Roger Bannister is, so for those of you that don’t here is a little insight into who he is.  He is an English Neurologist born in 1929.  He is best known for being the first man to run a mile in less than four minutes.  He did this in 1954 when he ran a mile in 3 minutes 59.4 seconds.  This was done after multiple attempts and people telling him that he cannot do it.  Isn’t it amazing that once he broke the 4 minute mile how many others have come behind him and beat his record?

 

Today is my day to push past the pain!!

Don, In order to improve, we must do more that we had been doing.  That includes our bodies, business and family

I need to lean on this one.

You are right we need to go past the pain to enjoy the benifits of our work.

Roger Bannister set the bar for every other miler out there. And he's a great source of inspiration for you and everyone else who says "it can be done". Here's wishing you success in your "pushing yourself past your pain" efforts.
