I’m happy to be ‘A Work In Progress’ and as I take action today, I know that I will learn lessons that shape me and I know that I will have transformed from this point in time to my next reflective moment.

The photo above and the photo below are both success stories, yet I undertook a massive transformation from 2010 to 2017.

In 2010 I ran 7 marathons in 7 days. Quite an achievement that I was very, very proud of.

BUT!

It was not my initial intention to run 7. It was actually 30. However, I was talked out of attempting 30.

I was told … I had no previous experience. I was an ordinary runner, not an elite athlete. It was a stupid idea. I couldn’t do it.

I listened!

I changed my goals.

BUT!

When the euphoria (and pain) of doing 7 ebbed, I still wondered … Was I capable of more?

It took a long time … 7 years, but I transformed.

In 2017, I still had people around me who questioned and doubted.

BUT!!!

This time I listened to me!

Over the ensuing years I had worked hard on my self-belief! I worked hard on my WHY’s.

And to tell a cheeky truth, one of those why’s was to be spiteful and prove them wrong.

But mostly I ran a marathon a day for 63 days with all of my heart and all of my conviction.

 

I transformed from a person who believed in others to someone who believed in me!

I can’t wait to see where I am in 7 years from now.  I do know that I will be stronger and more knowledgeable because I am ‘A Work in Progress’.

I hope this helps.
