I read the quote below by William James for the first time today and thought I’d share it in today’s blog post. It’s definitely appropriate for my long distance running, but it’s also a great message for seeing our dreams through and not giving up too soon.
So many times – just like when we start to hurt or get winded during a long run – we slow down, stop and call it a day. When we make this decision, we only cheat ourselves. This quote is a great reminder to keep running until we catch our second wind.
“Most people never run far enough on their first wind to find out they’ve got a second. Give your dreams all you’ve got and you’ll be amazed at the energy that comes out of you.”
