“Can I Do It?”
Can I do a triathlon? Can I finish the IRONMAN®? Can I run a MARATHON? Can I learn how to swim, bike or run FASTER?
This can be applied to ANYTHING, but we get it all the time. “Can I do it?” “IT” can be WHATEVER.
Here’s our response…
What Do YOU Think?
So, …can YOU do it? … Well, here’s my response: What do YOU think? Because whether you think you CAN or think you CAN’T … you’re probably right.
If you really really don’t know the answer then I’ll tell you. YOU CAN ABSOLUTELY DO IT!
Whatever it is you’re questioning. I realize this can be a huge generalization, but if you want something bad enough, you will most definitely get it, if you’re willing to work for it. But you HAVE TO BE WILLING TO DO THE WORK.
If you’re not sure what “the work” is we can absolutely tell you what that may entail. Everyone is different, but for just about everyone, “doing the work” will require commitment, sacrifice and determination.
How Can I Do It?
Some people will be able to do it on their own. Others will need a little guidance. And still others will have to make additional sacrifices to achieve what they’re after. Obviously, how long this takes depends on a lot of factors.
When you decide to do something EPIC, there is no question, hiring a coach or having a mentor can be a huge help. Between expertise and accountability having someone with experience in your corner will greatly increase your chances of success.
Whether you are considering signing up for your first triathlon or your first half IRONMAN® or full IRONMAN®… or even a marathon we would love to have the opportunity to help guide you to your finish line. You can learn more about RTA coaching here and if you’re interested, we are happy to give you a ring to discuss your goals and explain how it works.
At the end of the day, you have to BELIEVE IN YOURSELF and TAKE ACTION. Don’t worry if you don’t have all the answers right now, just get going and start moving toward your goal one step at a time.
As you know, nothing happens over night, but in one year from now, YOU COULD DO IT! Can you imagine how good that’s going to feel? Why not use this time as a catalyst for your future?
