Motivation Is What Gets You Started – Jim Ryun
“Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.”
– Jim Ryun
Making the decision to change your life for the better, whether it’s towards a post-holiday fitness goal or an attempt at a different career is admirable, but only the first step in a long journey. The best example of this is running: the decision is the easy part, and the motivation to keep going for the first few weeks is perhaps the most critical measures. But all of that means nothing unless you form a habit out of running – like most things, you gotta use it or lose it. Jim Ryun, the first high schooler to run a mile in under four minutes, never lost it because he never stopped running. Will you take your dreams and turn them into a sustainable reality?
