Don't give up!

I just came back from my evening run.
It was a good run but it almost didn’t start out that way.
Today is one of those days that I didn’t feel like running.
I usually enjoy sweating it out after a day at the office.
But on days like this, do I skip my training?
I try not to…because it is simply too easy to give up.

I get my bum off the chair, put on my running shoes and start walking…
then I pick up speed and I am rolling along… there’s no stopping me!
I felt so good after the run.
It was easy, wasn’t it?
How can I even think of giving up earlier?!

Sometimes we give up too easily. We don’t even give ourselves a chance to try.
If a task looks too challenging to accomplish, break it up into smaller parts.
Start by taking baby steps.
Soon you will be making bigger strides.
Before you know it, you’re confidently forging ahead.

So do yourself a favour, don’t give up just yet.
If at first you don’t succeed, try again.
And again…
