Measuring Success

Success Isn't How Far You Got, But The Distance You Traveled From Where You Started

As I get closer to our big day on Saturday, I have been reflecting not so much on what I can do today but on the difference between today and 18 months ago.  I don't think I am special or unique except in one way.  I wanted to change more than I wanted to stay stuck in my old ways.  I think that was an important hurdle for me both mentally and physically. 

Everyone has something they want to change or improve in their life, but how many people are willing to put in the required effort the bring about change.  If it was easy, everyone would have what they wanted.  But the fact is, it isn't easy.  So when you want to change your circumstances DO IT, and stick with your plan.

Michelle has been my biggest supporter and biggest fan for many years.  No matter how I do on Saturday, at the end of the day she will be MY hero for her good example, drive, and determination to put in the required work to reach her goals. 

She has traveled a great distance from where she started and I am proud of her.
