This morning when I woke up, I had this burning desire in my heart to go run. I have not been running in over a week or so. I knew I wanted to do it and as I was thinking I reassured myself that I am definitely going to run
What was interesting about this whole thinking, planning and ultimately taking the action was that I agreed to myself that I was going to run 15km, something that I have not done in a while. I guess over a year or so. I fed my mind and my subconscious mind with the idea that “I can do that”. I felt so tired with 5km and 10km runs; they were beginning to sound more monotonous to me and I needed encouragement of some sort
To cut the story short; this is what I am good at when I want to achieve something; I just changed into my gym clothes and got myself ready. This habit I learned that – once I am “workout ready” there is no turning back. I know for sure that action is a sure case and a done deal!
Most of the time I listen to my worship songs because I enjoy fellowship whilst running. I never felt so good ! My mind was already set for this. I knew this when I started! I did not succeed because I could; but I believe I succeeded because I removed all the fear, the negative self-talk that sometimes discourages us, I had a vision to finish the race, I had to reinforce my goals by faith that I had and love; I was physically prepared and I had set the goals powered by the desire to succeed…
….and I did! I finished my 15km race in 1:48:16 and I was proud of myself. My pace was pumping me up, telling me “I can”. I am grateful that I did it! This to me is what we call SUCCESS.
Success is not wealth or money, but success is an accomplishment of an aim or purpose
Being successful means the achievement of a desired and planned goals. I know I could not have done it better if from the beginning I never communicated with my subconscious mind. What I set my mind on, that is – my mindset, is the reason for my success. I strongly believe
We do not fail to succeed because we cannot, but we fail to succeed because our mindset does not connect with our vision and goals
Hope you are inspired and you will too inspire others positively. “ Be conscious of what you set your mind on” if you are to succeed in life
