15 Minutes To Action - What Running Ultra Marathons Has Taught Me About Building Resilience
Toughness and resilience are attributes we all need right now, but many believe that they can only be attained through long periods of failure or setbacks.
Nick’s here this week to smash that thinking, with a special insight into how he prepares for the physical trials of marathon running, and how you can take the empowering lessons he’s learned, in order to build up your resilience reserves today!
If you want to grow, and to become the best version of yourself that you can be, you need to set tasks or challenges for yourself that feel impossible.
By allowing ourselves to see our goals long term, and by developing the ability to look as far ahead as possible, we come to realise that any current challenges are merely moments, and will pass.
The best way to overcome a fear is to face that fear. The best way to grow is push through a barrier, because if you do, your strength and resolve will expand exponentially.
Meditation helps us to experience the moment. It is the practice of tapping into the layers of our brain, our psychology, and our emotions, and being able to call upon those things when it matters.
‘Living life on your own terms is the key’
‘In life, everything is about growth and contribution’
‘If you want to build resistance, you first have to change the narrative’
‘You’ve got to feel the fear and do it anyway’
