It is most important that in these times we keep doing the work. The “work” maybe going out for those training runs, rides, or swims. It may be sticking to the nutrition plan even though you and everyone else around you is saying, “one won’t hurt you.” It may be saying your affirmations diligently and with feeling over and over and over and over again. It may be putting forth that prayer, just once, and then focusing your thoughts on faith rather than fear. It may be practicing forgiveness, self or others (to be completely honest not forgiving only really hurts you).
So in other words, we can’t pray just once, do one workout, occasionally yoga, go to the gym, swim, run, or bike, do one affirmation, challenge one negative thought or behavior, eat healthy for one, day, week, or month, and think we are entitled to some benefits. No. No. No. On the contrary doing the work means that sometimes in life we just gotta keep moving, just gotta keep “doing”, just gotta keep “being” until the day we notice we have stopped asking when, where, or why.
If we keep doing the work, keep believing, keep aspiring, keep pushing towards greater heights I believe a shift will occur, and that “shift” will be your gift, your testimony, your reward, your secret, your inspiration that will show you that if you keep doing the work everything else will fall into place. All is well. All is good.
Keep reaching for YOUR peak!
