Why Not Almost There?

I had never run a long race in my life, but here I am, in the middle of the 2015 Chicago Marathon. I’m feeling fantastic, even thinking I could go double the distance.

Just being in this race was a mini-miracle. I had heart surgery and back surgery a decade earlier. I could barely stand back then, let alone run.

Nonetheless, I’m fired up and feel better than ever.

Then I see right in front of me— a sign that nearly stops me in my tracks, NOT ALMOST THERE. I try to brush it off but can’t stop thinking about those words. Every step seems heavier, harder, and then I start cramping up. I begin to walk and complain inside and out. I struggle the entire second half but finish (barely) with everything I have after being physically and mentally crushed.

I have never stopped thinking about that sign but that’s fueled a quest to understand the power of the mind, body, and spirit. To understand how we accomplish things. To understand how we become better in the race against time and ourselves.

Get Inspired On The Way

If you think you can do more, you can. You just need to get out of your same routine, learn new skills and perspectives, and reach beyond your self-made limitations. Easier said than done, and no one does it alone. That’s why I started recording and sharing conversations with world-renowned leaders in entrepreneurship and overall health and wellness.

"Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts." — Winston S. Churchill

We can't hear it enough. Our failures or successes are not the be-all & end-all measures of a fruitful life. Having the courage to get up & start over, even though it's hard, shows immense strength of character.

I started Not Almost There in 2021 - what a way to step out of my comfort zone but it's turned out to be a blessing. 

For most of my life, I've been seeking out personal growth & I can't think of a better way to do it than to challenge oneself continually. It's turned into a quest to find out how we as the human race accomplish things & it's a privilege to share these conversations with my online community. 

I think Annette White's thoughts on the comfort zone sums it up: "Don’t let fear make your decisions for you.” 

We can't let excuses & fear rule our lives. Fortune favours the brave. In many instances in my life's journey, I had to learn that giving up is not an option & that true victory awaits those courageous enough to push their limitations👊🏻🙌🏻
