Think like a bumblebee, train like a racehorse. I recently read an article in a fitness journal by Ben Bergeron that had some wise words that resonated with me. The message was very powerful and so thought provoking. Before we get to that message, I must ask a few questions and give some background. How do you go from good to great? Do you feel that life is good right now? If so, awesome! But what if you want life to be more than good? What if you want life to be GREAT?
 Bumblebees aren't supposed to fly. Scientists had studied bumblebees extensively to try to figure out how a large, furry insect could fly with such little wings. The scientists concluded that the physics show that there is no way they should be able to fly. Later, they concluded that the reason they can fly is because of an overwhelming intensity of effort. You see, no one told the bumblebees they can't fly... Having faith in their abilities, combined with intensity of effort, gives them the ability to achieve what seems impossible.

Train like a racehorse. Racehorses train and get pampered at an elite level. You have to fuel the racehorse properly {you're welcome Justin Arnest}; special equipment is used for performance and exercise physiology monitoring; special coaching is utilized, etc. The amazing thing about racehorses is they don't question their training.  They do what is asked of them and go perform. They don't second guess themselves, the coaching, or over think the process. They just go DO!

As we examine our lives and quality of life, why are we limiting ourselves? Are you ok with mediocre? Are you ok with "good"?  Why not greatness?  Who's to stop you from unleashing your potential and allowing you to reach a higher level of greatness, whatever that means to you?

Think like a bumblebee, train like a racehorse.  Believe you can achieve greatness! Your mental gameplan and self talk is so important. Yeah, you've heard that before, but truly the game you play in your head can make or break you.  Don't over think why you can or can't do something.  There are probably a million reasons you will find you can't. Believe you can, and just go DO!
