868 miles so far in 2012 after today's 21 mile run...

 I am going to try something a little bit experimental today.  I am going to give you an excerpt from "365" because I believe you really have no idea what you are capable of.  I believe that we all make life harder than it needs to be.  I believe that one day at a time we can accomplish just about anything.  I believe that all that matters is what we do today.  I believe that one year from today is just today 365 times.  I believe that every day is a gift.  I also believe that it can be real easy to forget these things because we simply forget to slow down.  The mind is an amazing thing, but we can only focus on one thing at a time and whatever we focus on at any given moment is our reality.  So I believe that it is my job to bring you back to what you already know, to remind you what you may have forgotten.  So I am providing a little perspective for you.

Do not just read the following text, I am challenging you to actually take 30 extra seconds and think about how this thought applies to your life today...

..."Everything in life started off as an idea.  It is possible that most people have not achieved the success in life when they already should have, while others have succeeded many times over.  Some people give up at the first sign of resistance and adversity, while others push on.  The reason why many give up on their current goal or dream is quite possibly because they forgot to keep it simple.  They became overwhelmed and looked too much at all the steps involved in the completion of a task, instead of the most important one and, truly, the only one that matters, which is the present step. 

Anything is possible when you learn to keep it simple.  Focus only on what you can do today.  You will naturally keep yourself aligned with the big picture as long as you set goals and review them daily.  Now get back to reality and focus on the one thing that you can do now to move you closer to your goal"

What do you really want?
What is the least that you can do today towards that goal without doing nothing?

 If you have not seen it yet and you want to know WHY I am running 21 miles a day, check out this interview... "Making the journey from prison to the World Records"

I am currently working nights to support this dream. YES, I work in the evenings after running 21 miles each day!   Ultimately I would like nothing more than to run marathons everyday and spend the rest of the time working on my other book titles as well as be with my family (I do have four kids as well!)

The logical solution is corporate sponsorship - I am now in a position to do this full-time.  Interested parties should contact me directly at my above e-mail address.  If your not interested at this time, maybe you know someone who is - Pass this on to them.
