I haven’t seriously trained for two years. It’s not that I haven’t run. I have ran miles and miles with a few races thrown in. But I haven’t trained with a specified goal in two years. IT’S TIME.
It’s time to train again. It’s time for a serious goal. It’s time for a win.
Having a specified goal is vital for three reasons:
- A decided goal aids in discipline. Being disciplined in one area helps you become disciplined in all areas. The more disciplined you are, the easier it is to rid the habit of procrastination. No longer do you want to wait; you now become proactive to get the job done.
- A decided goal gives you focus. You become less distractible. Distractions have less of a stronghold on you, and it’s easier to decipher the good from the best. When you become decided, many “opportunities” may come your way, but focus helps you to filter them — will they get you closer to your goal or hinder it?
- A decided goal gives you purpose. It gives you motivation to keep going. You’ve set a finish point and are excited to see it come to fruition. It helps you to live life on purpose. You’re excited to get out of bed every day because you’re in a pursuit of greatness.
A specified goal aids in discipline, gives you focus, and gives you purpose. It’s time. It’s time for you to set a specific goal. It’s time for you to rise to the challenge. It’s time for you to have another win.
