A client recently said to me…. “Keris I feel like you’re superhuman with all your nutrition lecturing, yoga and running. I’m so far away from where I’d like to be, it’s frustrating and at times feels pointless!”
I hear ya 🤔
As much as I love a bit of X Men I can assure you of three things….
1) I’m just like all of you and regularly find myself in the exact same position, I still look ahead and wish I could DO that, BE that or KNOW all that stuff 😯 That never ends, but you get better at acknowledging your wins and reflecting on your progress.
2) We’re all super humans 👊
3) Superhumanism can only thrive if you make lots of mistakes, experience some false starts or mishaps, get over them and get right back to it 🙌
It might help to know…
My first run lasted about 4 minutes (literally that scene from Peep Show) I got a stitch and collapsed 😩
My first attempt at public speaking was the most horrific experience, I was sweating, shaking and tripping over words – it became my nemesis for a VERY along time 😳
I’ve lost count of the times I’ve fallen off gym machines, propelled myself over bike handle bars, couldn’t answer a question, gave the wrong answer, stacked it out of a yoga pose…
BUT I always go back for more.
It’s thanks to my dad who told me this as a teenager…
“The strongest people in life face their fears, rise to the challenge, get knocked down and come back stronger 💪🙌
If you can adapt and progress during times of uncertainty and within an uncomfortable environment you’re ability to evolve and grow will make always you a force to be reckoned with in the future.
So no you can’t give up university and come home!” 😂
It’s a conversation I play over in my head on a regular basis, I hope his wise words speak to you too 🙌
