Challenges? No, they are opportunities! 🧐
New city, new people and there I entered into university. I realised I was given this opportunity in a new city to re-shape my mindset, I was given an opportunity to face new challenges and overcome them in a new situation.
I attempted to get back into fitness and started to apply my turn up mentality. I started step by step, one small change at a time and what I realised was that when I started to put it to practice, all aspects of life simply started to improve more.
Imagine being in university, getting up before 5.30am (rain, hail or shine) getting to the bus stop in order to get to the gym by 6am, finish up at the gym, catch the bus back to get ready for university, get home, get ready, catch the same bus back to uni, then finish uni and go to training and then go to work day in day out.
This was the turn up mentality.
I think that one of the moment important lessons I have learnt over life is that turning up is the only way you are going to achieve things. Whether it be turning up to the gym, to university, to work, to your hobby, for your friends or family, whatever it may be, you just need to turn up, because once you turn up, you have already accomplished something, you have already jumped over the first hurdle.
Life will continue to throw challenges at us, though if we are able to just turn up to what we need to achieve, we will always be moving forward, one day we will take 10 steps forward, and another day it may be half a step, but as long as we continue to move forward, we will be continue to grow, continue to succeed and continue to change OUR world.
Let's turn up!
