Watch Your Thoughts; They Become...




I'm now officially seeking motivation for another endurance endeavor. With some 17 ultras behind me,  I'm torn between yet-another-100-miler-commitment and something more ethereal, unknown. In the process I came across this quote. It kind of makes me want to explore... 

Watch your thoughts; they become words.

Watch your words; they become actions.

Watch your actions; they become habit.

Watch your habits; they become character.

Watch your character; it becomes your destiny

Lao Tse

Yes the ultra bug is in you and you don't know how to stop it! I'm afraid it may be happening to me now. As much as I hated my last experience, there is always that drive to move on and try another one.

I think I know to what you are referring to....Like any major commitment , the first step is the hardest .You can not only count me in , but count on my support !

Look forward to hearing what you decide and following the adventures. Looking for something new this year. If I do not get into Western States I think I would still like to come out west at some point. Perhaps Pine to Palm. Love to hear your favorites out there. Peace E

It is a nice motivation speech. I know that you will do it and pretty well.
