When we find ourselves in a difficult place in life seems like one of two things happen: we either give up and accept the situation making the most out of it with the fatalistic “it is what it is” attitude, or we decide to fight, crawl, push, and shove our way out, however difficult that might be. Yesterday I saw this video for the first time, and I cried like a baby watching it. I have seen it several times since, and every time it still moves me. Ben’s story resonates with my own. Do yourself a favor and take a few minutes to watch it:
While I was never as big as Ben, I was on the same path and one day decided to do something about my health and so I went for a run. Since then I have done several races, a marathon and a triathlon. If Ben can do it, if I can do it, so can you.
If you’re struggling with your health or your weight, let me encourage you to tie your running shoes on and take a first step into your new life. I’ve never regretted it. I know you won’t.
What area of your health or fitness you’re thinking about taking to the next level?
