Redefine Your Possible

I have been thinking about this blog post for a few days.  I've started it, deleted, restarted... I'm not sure why I can't seem to find the words.  Redefine Your Possible.  I saw that on a t-shirt the other day. Normally I'm not one to get in a bother over cheesy inspirational sayings, but this one is sticking with me.

What does that mean for me?  How do I even know what is possible?  I have some goals in mind... and what I struggle with is what if the goals I've set are unreachable?  Or what if they're too reachable, and I'm not even challenging myself?  How do I redefine my possible when I am not sure what is possible?

Perhaps that's the takeaway.  We don't really know what's possible, so there's not really a point to all the negative self-talk we engage in. The "I can't" "It's too hard/long/fast" etc.  It's also pretty easy to simply coast, and rest on what we've done before as good enough - but are we striving to reach the limit of what's possible?

Again, I'm not sure why I can't seem to shake this saying from my head.  Redefine Your Possible.  I think this holds true not only for sport, but for our personal lives, relationships, work, play... It's more than setting goals - it's looking within and making sure you're living the best life you can.  Redefine Your Possible.  Live Like You Mean It. I believe those are intertwined.  Redefine Your Possible - what does that mean for you?

Let 2012 be the year where we all redefine what is possible!
