20 Seconds of Insane Courage
Have you ever seen the movie We Bought A Zoo? Really good movie, but it seems to cause some sort of allergic action with my eyes...
There is a part in the movie where this young boy is having problems figuring out a girl he is interested in. Good luck with that young man. I train nothing but women, I'm 37, been married for 11 years, and I'm still clueless.
I digress. His dad, played by Matt Damon, has some excellent advice that I think can help you too.
"Sometimes all you need is 20 seconds of insane courage. Just literally 20 seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it."
Think back on some of the greatest things you have done in your life. Most of them are things that probably scared you to death to start them. That makes it so much sweeter when you get through it!
Maybe it was choosing a far away job or school. It could be you joined the military. Maybe you spoke up against some kind of injustice.
Whatever it was, it took a snap decision to do something and it allowed you to accomplish something you could be proud of. I want to challenge you to do that again.
Do something that is way out of your comfort zone.
Sign up for that 5k, 10k, or half marathon you don't think you can finish.
Lift that weight you don't think you can.
Sign up for a class that scares you.
Chances are you that you have it in you to do these things right now, you are just letting fear hold you back. Even if you are not ready now, fear is an excellent motivator to get you in the shape you need to be in.
I would love to help you accomplish this, let me know how I can help you.
