WHY YOU CAN’T WAIT TO BE READY AND HOW TO START NOW
📸 Rohrman Triathlon February 17th 2018
My very first triathlon.
I was NOT READY.
Couldn’t swim 🏊🏼♀️ yet.
Hadn’t rode a bike since I was 14 or so.
Was just starting running again after recovering from a stress fracture on my right shin.
I was not ready. But I went for it. And it was the start of it all. It changed my life. I was hooked. Never looked back. 7 months later I was racing Nice 70.3 Ironman.
Consistency, discipline, determination, dedication, courage, humility and resilience are taking me where I want to go. I am on my way to my first full distance Ironman 140.6 that will take place in Hamburg in June 2023.
Most things happen when you least expect it. They happen when you’re putting yourself out there. When you’re taking the steps to get to where you want to be, you’re opening yourself up for the changes to take place.
There are probably tons of excuses and reasons you’ve made up to stay in your comfort zone. By doing nothing, you’ve gone nowhere. Instead of hoping things can fall into place when your situation is ideal, start taking steps towards your goals.
There is no stopping time from passing us by. You only have this one life and there are more things you could be doing to make you happy. So many of us waste time stuck in a monotonous routine that we forget about the things that bring us joy.
You should go after your goals, dreams, or even something you’re not ready for because (as crazy as it is) you learn to figure it out along the way.
Stop waiting to be ready, it won’t happen. You need to take action now.
