“A person can succeed at almost anything for which they have unlimited enthusiasm.” – Charles M. Schwab
I don’t have the answers, but I do have ardent respect for those who actively seek to push their limits in an effort to improve themselves. I don’t pretend to be among this group. As much as I love being active, this is a whole other level of commitment.
Many people are addicted to easy. The easy way to weight loss, the easy way to be healthy, the easy way to make money…easy, easy, easy. It’s a weird and wonderful planet when among those who’ve made couch surfing a sport, there are those dedicated to extreme challenges. Opposite ends of the spectrum no doubt, and for that reason so fascinating.
What makes someone disdain physical activity, even the most modest, while others can’t live without it?
The commitment to which I refer is that which drives people to participate in competitions like Tough Mudder, Ironman, Race across America, hiking Mt. Everest...
There are so many qualities required – dedication, passion, hard work, self-discipline…and maybe a little insanity too. Who knows…
But I would like to hear from you. Have you participated in an extreme physical challenge, or know anyone who has? Please share your experience with the Big Little Life community. Your passion just might be contagious.
