Wired Not To Fail…

Posted: February 3, 2020 in Uncategorized

Have you ever felt like you failed at something?

Everyone fails at something in life, right?

“Success in life comes when you simply refuse to give up, with goals so big and so strong that obstacles, failure, disappointment, and loss only acts as motivation to drive you across there finish line.”

In 2012, when I was watching the Chicago Marathon on the TV (the off-channel) where they showed people passing out, falling down and throwing up as they crossed the finish line. After watching that for hours, I told my wife “I want to do that.”

My life motto really changed in 2010, when I lost 135#’s and kept doing things that I was never able to do when I weighted 310#.

Back to my Marathon idea. I told someone in early 2013 that I wanted to run a marathon, and she said “You can’t do that!” Those words is exactly what inspired me to run there 2013 Chicago Marathon. In June 3013, I followed the Hal Higden 18-week training program, How To Train For & Run A Marathon In 18 Weeks. Make a long story short, I did the training religiously and finished the 2013 Chicago Marathon with 3 goals in mind.

  1. Stay on 2 feet for 26.2 miles.
  2. Do Not throw up
  3. Finish the race.

All 3 goals accomplished!~

Next time someone tells you… “You can’t do that!”                                                             Figure out YOUR way to do it for YOU!

SO……………….  BE YOU! INSPIRE YOURSELF #NoExcuses #NeverGiveUp #NeverQuit
