What Eddie The Eagle Taught Me

I watched the film “Eddie The Eagle” this weekend have you seen it? If not I highly recommend it.

I remember growing up as a kid, glued to the telly when the Olympics came on. It didn’t matter if it was the Summer or Winter Olympics I was there on the sofa, front row viewing. I found all the athletes inspiring with their focus, commitment, wanting to be their best, to break PB for themselves and their countries, going after their dream of being an Olympian and to stand on the podium and receive a medal.

I remember “Eddie The Eagle” came from nowhere. He was the guy that was kicked off every sports team, he was the kid that everyone made fun of and talked down to. And in the same breath he had hope and a dream of being an Olympian one day, representing his country and doing his best.

There was no fear, no ‘I’m not good enough’ thinking.

Instead this was replaced with guts, determination, persistence, commitment to his dream, follow through, being outcomes focused and realising his Olympian dream.

So next time you want to quit on your dreams, think of Eddie, and keep going.

And remember

Wish it …. Dream it … Do it!

A Clean Slate

Wow so 4 months have whizzed by and it’s the start of another month. 4 months that you’re never going to get back again.

- Are you happy with how it all played out?

- Have you been true to yourself and your dreams?

- Did you smash it in the areas you wanted and the commitments you made to yourself and others?

If yes great, if not then why not?

Did you let ‘life’, excuses and other people’s demands take over and play a more important role in your life.

Either way it is what it is. You are RIGHT here for a reason. Acknowledge where you are, what you have achieved in the past and today realise it’s a new day, a clean slate, a start of a new month, a great time to re commit.

So what ARE you going to commit to in May?

If you want things to change in your life, you will have to either create some new habits and/or change some old habits. And then commit to taking daily actions.

CONSISTENCY is king !!!!!!

I always love the 1st day of the month, it’s like a clean slate, as if you’ve turned a page in a book.

So what are your goals and what are you going to commit to completing by the end of May.

For me the last 4 months I’ve been focussing on

- Working with some amazing leaders in the nutrition field

- Bought a house

- Published my book on Amazon – “Just Another 5km”

And in the same breadth I feel I’ve let other areas of my life slip a bit.

My focus hasn’t been on exercise that much. Ok a bit of running and bush walking here and there, but no where near the commitment I gave last year when I was training for my marathon.

And I’ve started to notice the difference …. especially strength and tone.

So I’ve committed to doing some form of exercise everyday throughout May, with my goal of Run Noosa (10km) on 29th May.

Do you have a fitness goal for May?

Let’s smash this out together and commit to moving everyday in May, whether that’s running, other cardio, strength training or yoga/walking….. you name it, let’s do it.

We were designed to move, so let’s get moving together. Let me know your May fitness goal and let’s make a daily commitment to get moving in May.

Come on over to https://www.facebook.com/RunSueRun and let us know your May goal and then your daily action.

Lets move more in May – #movemoreinmay

And remember

Wish It … Dream It … Do It!
