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!
