“Many people think we need to motivate ourselves before we take action, but the opposite is true-by acting we can motivate ourselves.”
I remember hearing about Tom Fleming, one of the greatest marathon runners of his day. When Fleming was in training, he would run between 150 and 175 miles per week.
He was twice the New York City Marathon winner and runner-up in the Boston Marathon.
Someone once asked Fleming, “Did you ever NOT feel like running?”
Fleming responded, “EVERY DAY I didn’t feel like running…until I started running. Then I got into it.”
