Message from Coach Mark

Know and Understand your OWN Reality and Limits

Knowing your limits and your reality is the start of creating success and achieving self-confidence. It will also help keep your goals realistic. What is your reality?

Are you a stay at home – work all day person – or businessperson who puts in 12 hour workout days and has to decide between training in the early morning hours or late evening hours and get enough rest? Are you driving the kids all over town from one activity to another – which means missing one or two of your own workouts?

Understanding your reality is important and will help determine your plan of action. It is the difference between saying to yourself "I wish I had the time to train like that", and instead saying

"How can I get the most out of the time I have to swim and train? You need to figure out how you can pursue your goals within your reality.

There is 24 hours in a day – how many hours do you waste? We all know that we can adjust our priorities so that we don’t waste time and that our training and exercise does not take a second

seat. How would it be if you looked at exercising or training as something that is a priority in your life?

Knowing what training time your reality allows you means that you can set goals that are challenging but realistic. Place your training and exercise within your reality – You now have created a foundation for success!

Quote of the Day

"Give yourself a break. Stop beating yourself up! Everyone makes mistakes, has setbacks and failures. You don't come with a book on how to get it right all the time. You will fail sometimes, not because you planned to, but simply because you're human. Failure is a part of creating a great life. Stand up to it and handle it with grace. Because, you can." -Les Brown
