Training is training

My favourite quote for some time has been from Mark Twain:




"There is nothing training cannot do, nothing is above its reach"



I have used this in my training sessions by spoonfeeding it to my trainees and repeated it to myself whenever the going gets tough. I find it reminds me that anything is possible, we need only learn how to do it.

Some like to use analogies about eating elephants, bite by bite and taking things step by step but however I put it at the moment....... I'm only 16weeks away from the Dublin Marathon and my legs hurt already!

Running a Marathon is a relatively painful, but very real reminder of the power of training. It requires many of the important things we rely on to achieve wealth, abundance and true freedom:

Commitment to your goals
Visualisation
Discipline
Perseverence
Inner strength
....and just putting one foot in front of the other
Because at the end of the day you will get there!
Lance Armstrong also said “Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.”
