This weekly tip reminds us that the clock is ever ticking towards the end of one year, and the start of a new one. Many of you had great joys in 2017. Some of these were athletic, professional, or personal. My family did, with the birth of my new nephew. He was excited and came a bit early, but by all reports, he and his wonderful mother are doing very well. Plus the 90th birthday celebration of my mother's sister.
Then there are those who had set backs. Injuries, imbalances, missed opportunities, or the loss of loved one. Again, my family was part of this as well. In our case, each of us needs to remember why we loved each other in the first place. To overcome our current state of indifference. Families go through these sometimes.
Regardless of how you feel right now, I'm sure you can reflect back to 2017 and find a list of positives that will bring you out of this year in a better place. It could be the mastery of a hilly run, conquering your morning workout plan, or witnessing a young family member learning to excel in Algebra. There's always something. Maybe as simple as somebody recognizing how kind you are.
Once you have found a better place only then start to make goals for the new year. I am reminded of the phrase, what's wrong with your workout routine? You're not doing it, because you don't enjoy it. Consider this as you outline where you want to be this time at the end of 2018. Don't spout out, I'm going to lose weight, run fast, or get the best promotion on the planet. Set your goals high, but then take stock of the steps you need to take to successfully reach your goals. You may need to recruit help here. A trusted family member or friend, a coach, running group, or guidance counselor all can be invaluable resources to make 2018 your greatest year yet. These types of resources will stick with you through trial and success of each step taken to fulfill your intended goals.
These are your goals. Why not do everything possible to reach the greatest fulfillment you can in the new year?
Happy New Year from Coach Bumber Running. Be Great!!!
