Monday Morning Motivation – Anything is possible

23 Jan

To accomplish something extraordinary, one must have an extraordinary dream. A goal so high, a journey so demanding, that its achievement to most seems impossible.

For 35 years, Ironman has defined a sport, growing from a single race into a global movement and a new generation of athletes.

25 countries with over 200 events, Ironman inspires us to reimagine our limits, to set our sights higher, to go farther than we ever have before.

Ironman is a statement of excellence, passion, commitment.

It is a test of physical toughness and mental strength.

Ironman is about persevering, enduring and being a part of something larger than ourselves.

It shows the heights that can be achieved when we push beyond our boundaries and go the distance to earn the title ‘Ironman’.

Monday Morning Motivation: Your ambition #ispossible

12 Oct
In the short film, Jamal Edwards expands on the lessons he has learned about mentorship and directs these to both his younger self and the audience. We watch him bike around the council estate where his journey first began while he relays the importance of building a support network for himself.

They say it’s impossible. The teachers will say that you lack concentration, but once you’ve discovered your passion you’ll never lack focus again. You can’t be scared of failure. Failure is not trying. No matter what you do, there will always be doubters – just don’t become one of them. Surround yourself with believers. Some of the strongest voices in your life are already around you. They’ll be the ones who have your back, when times are hard. And when you don’t know which road to take, reach out to those who have always been there. Be patient. Find opportunity in everything. It’s all about self-belief. You never know what small gift could change your life. Stay humble. Keep your feet on the ground. There are those who look at things and ask ‘Why?’ I say dream of  things that never were, and ask ‘Why not?’ Your ambition is possible.

The combination of powerful images, stirring music and emotive words in this video make it really inspirational. I’ve told Stuart that when I’ve completed Challenge Weymouth 70.3, I’m expecting a montage that is just as powerful!

There is no can’t, because this isn’t a sport for the weak-hearted, but for the strong-minded. Once you start, there is no backing down. We are triathletes.
