Don't get me wrong, I am GRATEFUL for the motivation and encouragement that comes from my friends, Nicole Spears, K.D. Gipson, Dawn Lee, Crimesha Cutts-Blaise, Denise Prince-Ezell, and Charmaine Nicole Ward, but nothing motivates like positive results. Yet, I must admit that Nicole rivaled the motivation of results by name-calling the other day!! If only y'all could have seen what she called a brotha!! You can still see the burn mark on my pride!! LOL!! THANK YOU, HOMIES, FOR KEEPING YOUR FEET WHERE THEY NEED TO BE IN ORDER TO MOTIVATE MY SOMETIMES STUBBORN SELF!! LOL!!
I completed the Savage Race in roughly 2 hours and 9 minutes, which is better than I expected. Don't tell anybody but I was kinda skerrd during the few days leading up to the event. I was not sure that I'd even complete it. I was concerned about my blood sugar too. Not knowing what to expect, often messes with your head, especially before doing something you've never done before. I was intimidated!! That darn 2-paged, 100 initial blanked waiver didn't help either!! LOL!!
As the medal shows, I FINISHED!! Just finishing is result enough to motivate me to do it again in September, but a competitive heat this time. This time, I KNOW, I can finish in an hour and a half or less. That's the goal anyway. Now think back to you, your desired results, and where you want to be five months from now. If results are your best motivation, then what must you do to achieve those results?? WORK, right??! You can't have results without it!!
What we achieve by never trying is forfeit and failure!! This is not just in this age of physical fitness and beast modes. This applies to anything you set out to do in life. This includes school, career, parenting, your spiritual life (if you go that way), marriage, finances, etc.
I commend those friends I've mentioned and all else who have challenged themselves to do and be better!! I'M PROUD OF YOU ALL!!!
Not one of us is able to achieve ANYTHING by doing NOTHING!!
I'm just sayin.......
HAPPY HUMP DAY Y'ALL!!! I LOVE ALL Y'ALL, NO MATTER WHAT!!!
P.S. The next Savage Race is scheduled for September 27th.......hint, hint!!
