Motivation Is What Gets You Started – Jim Ryun

Updated on May 10th, 2021

“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; the motivation to keep going for the first bit is perhaps the most critical. 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. He kept practicing and practicing, and kept pushing himself. We can learn from his example and implement it into our own lives. Will you take your dreams and turn them into a sustainable reality?
