Life is a Marathon – Not a Sprint

Life is a Marathon – Not a Sprint


what’s up world welcome back to lifefixx! in this video – life is a marathon. Not asprint So when I was a young laddy I used to participate in track and field events at my elementary school. Events that you
would see in Summer Olympics like high jump, long jump, hurdles, long distance
running, 100 meter sprints, things of that nature.
Basically any event that didn’t require my school to actually spend money on
anything. I remember I was a pretty fast runner. In my grade I was able to outrun
almost everyone. But only when running short distances. Sprinting. I was very
good at quick bursts of energy for a short period of time. But when running a
marathon, long-distance running type of events all the kids in my grade that I
could sprint faster than would cross the finish line like way before me. And I got
I got really upset about this. Because despite me really wanting to come in first place, and despite stretching before, making
sure I was properly hydrated, intentionally sabotaging the other kids,
everyone would always pass me. I didn’t come in last but I came pretty close. So …Why am I telling this story? Well I like stories. And I think this is a great
analogy for life. Not to toot my own horn but I like to dream big. I have a huge
imagination. I’m very creative. Very talented. Very clever. But my problem is I
sometimes have trouble following through all the way to the end. Sometimes I come
up with this great idea, I get super excited about it, I shift myself into
overdrive, put all of my time, energy and focus into trying to bring my idea to
life. Which is great because I usually get off to a really good, promising start
but rather than sustaining that initial drive and seeing it all the way to the
finish line of success, I burn myself out. Run out of steam. Get demotivated. Lose
interest and eventually I give up. It is very frustrating. Like seriously it
actually fucking sucks. Because after going through this process over and over again
in my life, and seeing the same patterns repeat themselves, it just leaves me
feeling like – What the fuck is the point of me investing my time,
money, and effort into anything, if it’s all just gonna fall apart in the end. And
quite truthfully, I still don’t have that figured out. I guess some people are just
long-distance runners and some people aren’t. so fuck you marathon runners but
I bet I could beat your ass in a race to the refrigerator. Now what sucks for us
speedy sprinters is life is a marathon. It’s not a sprint. Anything worthwhile to
have takes a while to get. And anything that happens overnight probably isn’t
going to be around for very long. There is no such thing as get-rich-quick
schemes. There’s no such thing as love at first sight. Don’t tell your wife that.
All the most valuable things in life are built slowly and gradually over time. So… the point that I’m trying to make with this video … is sometimes in life you are
standing at the start line with your eyes on the finish line. And you just
want to get from A to B as fast as possible. But along the way there is
going to be obstacles, distractions and difficult situations that might take you
off your path. But the fastest way to success in life isn’t speed or strength. It’s endurance and patience. so if you have huge life goals or hopes and dreams that you are trying to achieve, don’t hang up the towel if it doesn’t happen overnight. Because most likely it’s not going to! If you just pace yourself and
keep your eyes on the prize, don’t let anything or anyone take your eyes away
from that prize. Eventually you will succeed well that’s it folks. do you
