Normally I write all about things that can help YOU! and that’s how it should be, but for today only I’d like to talk about me 🙂 More specifically, I’ll give you an insight into why I do what I do. I think it’s important that you know why you do what you do, as when times get tough you can sit back and reflect on it (that’s not to say you can’t have a day where you don’t enjoy it!).
Although I never had a lightbulb moment when it comes to my choice of career, I’m very clear on reflection of why I do this.
Some of you may know that my sporting background is swimming. With swimming, comes up to 10 in the water training sessions a week (yes, at ridiculous hours in the morning), 3 or so in the gym and for me; countless hours in and out of physio clinics having treatment on my shoulders.
I had cortisone injections into both shoulder joints along the way and can’t really recall a time in the couple of years prior to retiring that I didn’t have to put up with some sort of pain. It was a major factor in my decision to hang up the goggles and speedos at the grand old age of 22.
Basically I don’t want other people to have to go through what I went through. I want to see you doing the things you love and want to do, without having to worry about your back or knee or whatever it is that’s causing you pain getting in the way
Now for some audience participation – What’s your why? Why do you get up and go do what you go and do? If you know the answer – great! Go and live it and let me know! If you’re not sure it’s ok! Take some time and work it out. Watch this video (its 18 minutes and worth every second). Well worth watching anytime!
