The Four D’s of Success

Never Give Up

Success Formula

I was speaking with a good friend of mine this evening who is highly successful in their field of elite health and fitness and I wanted to share with you his four D’s of success.  Below is what he considers to be the basic foundations of his extreme success to date in this industry:

1.  Diet (Healthy Nutrition)

2.  Discipline (Self)

3.  Determination (Self)

4.  Desire (Burning)

He explained to me how he applies these basic success principles in his daily life and how good this makes him feel.  I just felt it was really good to share with you his thoughts, to help you learn and apply these principles in your daily life.

It certainly inspired me and got me thinking about the principles that are missing from my daily life and for me “Discipline” is the one I need to work on.

Which of these success principles do you feel you need to work on or what do you feel is missing from the list?

It’s great to share this knowledge with you and add a little bit of value to your life.

Keep on, keeping on.

Loch Ness Marathon Coming Soon…..

Training Plan

The last 4 months I have been training vigorously for the Loch Ness Marathon to be held this Sunday, 29 September 2013.  This is my final week of training and I am pleased to say that it has all gone reasonably well with only some minor injuries and a few cuts and bruises.  This is my third marathon, I did the New York Marathon in 2007 and the London Marathon in 2010, both really challenging but amazing experiences.   Below is a photo of the training plan I have been following for the Loch Ness Marathon 2013:

Loch Ness Marathon Training Plan

I am excited about the Marathon run this Sunday, it can be a very exhilarating and highly emotional experience as you push your body past the realms of capability.  I am not sure if I will commit to doing another Marathon, I may look for a new fitness challenge, so this Sunday I am going to embrace the whole experience fully and be so thankful for my health, energy and fitness levels to take me past the finish line.  Below is a photograph of my running medals since I started road running in 2007:

Marathon Medals

I have learned a lot about myself whilst setting myself these running challenges or any challenge for that matter.  I know when I fully commit to a goal that I want to do, my determination and tunnel-vision focus will always see me achieve it.  It is like I have this inner dial in my subconscious mind switched to whatever the goal is and I know I am going to do it, I have absolute faith and belief that I will achieve that goal…..but it has to be a goal that I am passionate about doing!!

inner dial

Of course, just like any goal you want to achieve in life, you have to have a plan and you have to introduce new daily rituals which will support you and move you towards that goal. Just like my Marathon Training Plan above, then all I have to do is follow it…..simple!! Hahaha, well sometimes not so simple but I know you get my drift.  🙂

So there you have it, this Sunday, 29 September 2013,  I will be running 26.2 miles in an around Inverness, Scotland and I look forward to sharing the success story in a future blog post.

What goal have you always wanted to achieve and why?  Maybe, today is the day you decide to commit to it fully, set the inner dial on your subconscious mind to whatever it is and just you go for it.

Much love to you today,  Clarabelle
