Get Fit Quick Tip:

Participate in a Race!

Competition doesn’t always have to be intense, anxiety-inducing and stressful. Racing can, in fact, be motivating, inspiring and fun! Not only does racing yield physical benefits, but many non-physical benefits as well. Here are 3 non-physical benefits of racing and why you shouldn’t automatically rule it out in your athletic journey:

Racing allows time alone with your thoughts. That’s right, if you’re always running here and there, racing allows a set period of time to RELAX, take in the view and gather your thoughts. Or simply blank your mind and don’t think about anything at all!

Racing can be FUN. Remember your care-free days of dashing around the playground at school, or racing through the park with friends? Unless you’re competing for sponsors or qualifications, racing can be pure, easy, adult-allowed FUN.

Racing feeds your spirit. Yes, competition is a great workout. However, racing will also feed your spirit as you witness the friendship among athletes who have just met, the encouragement one athlete offers to another, the support and genuine care volunteers give to competitors. Allow these actions to move you and feed your motivation.

Stop Trying and Start Doing! by Joanne P. Stein

Why aren’t you manifesting according to your timelines or specifications?

It’s because we often don’t take the necessary actions to make dreams become reality and it starts by our use of one little three-letter word — TRY.


Set a clear intention of what you want. This can be a financial goal, a health goal, a relationship goal or any other type of goal that will give you more joy in your life.

Take Action. Don’t just try to do a little bit more, actually do it! Have you ever noticed that the harder you try, the less you get accomplished? Why is that? From my perspective, it seems like when I’m trying I have an underlying assumption of failure. It’s as if I’m making an excuse for why I won’t be able to accomplish something. If you heard someone say “I’m trying to get the report finished on time”, how would you interpret it? Would you have confidence that the report would be ready on time?  Probably not. More likely, you’d assume that it wouldn’t be completed on time and you’d probably be right.

Start doing. Trying will give you excuses while doing will get you results. The difference between trying and doing is in your attitude. Trust that you’ll succeed rather than fail and then roll up your sleeves and get to work. Remove the word “trying” from your vocabulary, and notice how much that simple step clarifies your activities. You’re either doing it or you’re not. You’re either taking action or you’re not.

Forget about trying. Trying is barely more effective than idle wishing. Stop trying and get going even if it’s just one baby-step at a time. You eventually will realize that the way you treat yourself, others, and planet earth determines the quality of your life.  Instead of “trying” we’re “doing” and our life changes for the better.

So what positive step can you take NOW that will bring you closer to achieving the type of life you really want? Go for it!
