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.
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 changed my goals.
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.
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.
