Take the risk… Try something new


I have made some pretty bold and scary goals for myself this year. One being starting a healthy living blog and the second being training for Triathlon. At such a high-level, both are extrememly intimidating and overwhelming.

A willingness to take risks is ingrained in my approach to life… but it doesn’t make the action of taking risks any less scary!

I am shifting from simply living a healthy lifestyle to documenting it in a way that is helpful and inspiring; and for Triathlon, I am shifting from just running to also swimming and cycling

Do something scary. Take a risk and try something you suck at, or something you’ve been avoiding.

For me, swiming is foriegn. I never swam lengths. I’d never swim for exercise. I truely and simply sucked at it. Any excuse in the book to get out of swimming, I used it. It’s been about 6 months now that I’ve given swimming a go… and I officically don’t hate it… in fact, I think I’m actually starting to love it!

Trying something new takes courage. It is a commitment to your self-improvement. Start with something small and see what a difference it can make to your confidence.

What will your something new be?  Making smoothies for breakfast? Signing up for a course? Cooking with coconut oil instead of olive oil?

  1. Excellent site you have here but I was curious if you knew
    of any user discussion forums that cover the same topics discussed in this article?
    I’d really love to be a part of group where I can get feedback from other
    experienced individuals that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations,
    please let me know. Thank you!
