What would you do. . .

by JP on August 15, 2011


. . . If you knew you could not fail?

It’s one of those questions that usually comes up between friends after a 12 pack around the fire pit. By the way, I really miss those days. I digress though. What wo

uld you do if you knew you could not fail? Cure disease? Fix the economy? Feed the hungry?

No matter what you think of, there is currently somebody out there trying to do it. It probably started as a dream for them too, but they decided to make it a passion. Somewhere deep inside of me is a passion for getting healthy. Seriously, it’s there. I am still working on myself. Just when I think I can pick a schedule to work with it’s shot. I’ve tried incorporating more into my daily routine at work besides just taking an extra long walk up some really high stairs. I am repeating to myself “squeeze the core” as I push wheel barrows of concrete around. I am up and down ladders adjusting trucks during the day as well.

Good Morning. Time to climb!

So now back to your passion peoples. The ones who are out there doing what they always wanted. They are also likely failing like crazy most of the time, and in the end . . . it’s why they will succeed. Micheal Jordan tells me so.

part of fighting is the will to not give up.

Giving up is giving up and YOU, my friend, have not given up.

Thanks JP! You are right. We keep trying, fail most of the time, succeed in the end. I like to say that at the end of my life, if you take all of my days and average them together, I will have had more “good” (healthy, active, happy, mothering) days than bad.
