I’ve spent a lot of my life living in fear of failure. Â I don’t at all mean to sound arrogant by saying this, I just don’t know how to put it. Â I’ve been blessed to have many talents in my life which haven’t taken training or work to develop. Â This is a blessing and a curse. Â It’s a curse because when I need to do something that I am not successful at from the start I want to give up! Â Health/fitness for me is hard! Â I wish it was easier, but it is a struggle always. Â I have been guilty of comparing myself to everyone who is better than me! Â Well, fact of the matter is… someone is always better than us!!! Â At everything! Â So do you let it get you down? Â I did for years, but not anymore. Â It’s all about changing your perception. Â Not that I think you should compare yourself to anyone, but when you think that you are doing better than yourself or the person you were yesterday… it can be great motivation to keep going. Â At first, I couldn’t stand longer than 5 minutes at a time, now I can run!!!! Â Not fast, but hey… I’m “lapping” the person I was then! Â Keep pushing forward!
