Sometimes it can be easy to set goals that are relatively easy to achieve. Conventional wisdom tells us to avoid setting goals that are too lofty, to not set ourselves up for disappointment and failure.
Our family disagrees. We enjoy setting goals that are ambitious and daring.
Almost all of us have heard a quote similar to the one above, I’m sure. Recently, I really took a good look at this quote and thought of how it applied to me. It inspired me to find a word to live by in 2014: Fearless
My goal is to live this year as if I know I’ll never fail, even if I end up doing that very thing. This will require me to try new things and to set my running and fitness goals very high.
I’m also positive that I’m going to have people doubt me. But, the way I see it is simple. If people don’t think I’m “crazy” for my goals then I didn’t set them high enough.
I was intimidated to participate in a mud run and I surprised myself when I finished it. I cried during my first 10K because I was so miserable and it made me so proud of myself when I crossed the finish line.
In closing, don’t make goals that are easy. Nothing of value comes easy – so make your goals mean something.
QOTD: In what areas could you be fearless? What is something you would try if you knew you wouldn’t fail?

Thanks, Heather! You rocked those tutus!
Great job on the 10k! The Spartan Beast race was something I will never forget. I cried when crossing the finish line! I was so proud. 🙂
