A client of mine asked me today how I stay so positive and focused. “And how do you stay motivated when you’re busy?!”
I quickly answered, positively, “Live for today, die for today.” And moved on. But then I started thinking.
Some say that to live in the past is to die in the present. Others will tell you that living in the future breeds anxiety. I say, live as a product of your decisions, not your circumstances. Decide to be happy. Decide to be motivated. Decide to get your “to-do list” done. Decide to be the best version of you everyday. Just decide. Would you make the same decisions today if you knew tomorrow wasn’t promised? #liveunbreakable#decide
At almost exactly this time last year, I crossed the finish line of the 2017 @ironmantri Arizona 140.6, and became a triathlete. And, simultaneously, an Ironman. #IMAZ was and forever will be one of the best, most influential, life changing experiences I’ve ever had. Between the long training hours and “no, I can’t, I’m training for #Ironman” that led up to the race, to the countless people I met in Arizona days before who helped reassure me that even though yes I was crazy, it’s ok because I was amongst crazy friends, and even the fourteen hour long journey itself... I’ll never forget any ((painful)) ((amazing)) second. I got to train. I got to meet incredible people. I got to finish. I got to be among a very small number of athletes in the world to achieve this goal. It wasn’t luck. It wasn’t serendipity. It was hard f*cking work, determination, and pushing so far outside my comfort zone I never wanted to go back. I still don’t. Comfort honestly scares me, way more than testing my own limits. But it still sounds so surreal to me ... 2.4 miles of swimming, 112 of biking, and 26.2 of running later... “Shaun Provost, you’re an Ironman.” Hell yeah I am. Of all the titles I’ve ever earned, I’ll wear this one most proudly. I can’t wait to see what’s next on #mytrijourney or who else I’ll have the chance to meet and learn from. It’s been one hell of a year and I wouldn’t change a thing. #liveunbreakable#ironman#ironmantri#fullironman#imaz#swimbikerun#triathlete#triathlon#triandstopme#endurance#strongwomen#personaltrainer#fit#fitspo#fitness#instafit#medalmonday#workhardplayhard#fitspiration#fitfam#fitnessaddict#fitnessmotivation#fitnesslife#fitlife#fitgirl#triathlon
