“The greatest threat to success is not failure but boredom”

I have always been spontaneous as a person and I hate doing the same thing over and over againโ€ฆ.

But when it came to changing my life, I knew I couldnโ€™t do whatever I felt like itโ€ฆ

I needed to keep putting one foot in front of the otherโ€ฆ

I needed to keep progressingโ€ฆ

If I didnโ€™t want to end up like the doctorโ€™s prognosis:

โ€œDuring chemo you will feel tired so do what you canโ€ฆ

During chemo you will feel sick so eat what you canโ€ฆ.โ€

I was told over and over againโ€ฆ

That mentality wasnโ€™t going to get me the results I wantedโ€ฆ

There were so many horrendous stories I could have hanged on toโ€ฆ

There were so many things I could have acceptedโ€ฆ.

But insteadโ€ฆ

I thought to myselfโ€ฆ

I am going to carve my own pathโ€ฆ

Sometimes I had enough energy to walk around the blockโ€ฆ.

Other days I had energy to ride my bike for 1 hour, do my weights training etcโ€ฆ

Sometimes I couldnโ€™t even prepare my own foodโ€ฆ

Other days I could help my husband with things around the houseโ€ฆ

It would have been so easy to give upโ€ฆ

I felt so sick 24/7โ€ฆ

It would have been so easy to skip a dayโ€ฆ

So I kept showing up to myself each dayโ€ฆ

To this date, I do the sameโ€ฆ

4 years laterโ€ฆ

This morning I woke up, I meditated then I did my weight training exercisesโ€ฆ.

I ate my healthy breakfastโ€ฆ

I reminded myself of my goals and brought myself back to my centre a million timesโ€ฆ

And it is only lunch time

When my thoughts wonderedโ€ฆ

When my mind tries to take controlโ€ฆ.

Some people will look at this and think it is boringโ€ฆ

It is hard workโ€ฆ

But honestlyโ€ฆ

If you have ever sat in a chemo chair being pricked and prodded for over 1 yearโ€ฆ

Does my routine seem hard?

Yes I wanted to create a different body, mind and soulโ€ฆ

Because no I donโ€™t want sit in that chair againโ€ฆ

And I am prepared to do whatever it takes for me to achieve my goalsโ€ฆ

So boredom is not in the equation anymoreโ€ฆ.

This is what I do and who I am.Hope this inspires you todayโ€ฆ.

To keep goingโ€ฆ.

In whatever you are doing to achieve the success you are looking forโ€ฆ
