If you are a regular visitor to this blog then you will likely know that I am a running coach who loves to help women get over whatever obstacles they are facing to become a stronger runner.
That strength is often inner strength, not just from doing squats or push ups.
One of my superpowers is helping clients (or athletes as I prefer to call them) to find their inner motivation. What it is they truly desire from themselves.
It’s when you find that that you can really devote yourself to a training regime as the motivation to train comes easily.
This is one thing that sets me apart from other trainers and coaches. Sure you might want to run because you want to lose 30kg, or because there’s a race you’ve always wanted to complete.
Those reasons are good but not good enough and one session with me will have you unlocking your deepest inner reasons.
Another of my superpowers is my own stubborness.
My parents have always called me stubborn and I like to think that it’s a good quality, though it’s often portrayed negatively.
By being stubborn I can get to the end of a race, even if I want to quit. I finished a marathon when I wanted to stop just shy of halfway.
I finished a half marathon (actually two and both times it was the Hamilton Half Marathon) when I knew it would be one of my slowest and I just wanted to sit down.
I entered, trained for and completed my first Ironman when all around me people thought it would be too much for me. My stubborness meant I wasn’t going to let others dictate what events I could do.
Knowing what your superpowers are can help you in all aspects of your life. Today’s blog challenge asked us to define ours and how they can help us to lead a freedom lifestyle.
My stubborness means I don’t give up easily, my ability to help others find their inner motivation means I know what my own motivation is. You can read about that here.
Do you know what your superpowers are?
