We are all chasing goals. Thinking up a goal is the easy part. Pinpointing the specifics of a goal, developing a plan of action, and then following through with that plan of action and pushing past the inevitable obstacles that will arise is a different story altogether. As you can see, there are many reasons why we fail to achieve our goals. But giving up is also the easy part.
I've spent that last 5 years chasing a goal to complete the Abbott World Marathon Majors and achieving my 6 Star Finisher Medal. Chasing this goal goes beyond running 6 marathons. It involves timing obstacles, hardships getting into the races, qualifying for the races, the country shutting down, health concerns, you name it. Despite all the obstacles I achieved this goal.
In this episode I recap the "real," non-Instagram journey and all the lessons I learned in why we, as humans, often do not accomplish out goals. Being aware of these potential goal upsets can be extremely beneficial when in your own goal pursuit.
