The first mile is the painful.
My legs feel heavy.
Up a small incline and Im out of breath already.
My mind dreads the many miles ahead.
If mile two is so terrible , how will I run 18?
Im fearful I will fail, be in pain, or both. Why do I do this to myself?
Then I get to mile 5
Im fully engaged in my music, podcast, or an audio book.
I feel stronger. I have found my stride.
I picture myself finishing my marathon in May. That sense of accomplishment.
Yesterday we incorporated as an LLC.
I felt the same way right before we clicked “submit” on Legal Zoom.
I was fearful.
What if we fail? What if we loose money?
I start to feel excitement.
I picture what our business could be. Helping people, diversifying my practice.
The sense of accomplishment.
I feel strong. We will find our stride.
Miles a head though.
Some will be painful.
Some will fly by.
Sometimes you have to push past the fear.
Sometimes you have to get to mile 5 before find your stride.
