Picture the finish line. No really. Picture yourself crossing the finish. It’s such a great and exhilarating feeling. Part of the magic are the cheers you hear all around you, the feeling that you’ve accomplished a goal and the knowledge that this was ALL YOU.
Part of the reason running a 5k feels so amazing is that it encompasses all the keys to motivation… the three things that drive every human being:
We want to feel a connection to others
We want to feel purpose, a reason, something to achieve
We want to have choice—make the decision independently.
If you’ve been having trouble motivating in any aspect of your life, try a 5k. It will give you a sense of purpose and ultimately a great feeling of accomplishment. You’ll practice self-discipline and focusing on one goal. You’ll be surrounded by friendly, like-minded people and you’ll feel the crowd cheering you on. It gives you a real sense of connection, which we all need.
If you’re motivation is out of shape, get it back by signing up for a 5k.
Just signing up starts the process. You’ll boost your drive power, your heart rate and your endorphins. I’ll see you at the finish. You’re gonna love it.
