About 3-4 times a week I lace up my trail shoes and an head out for a run in one of the parks around my house. I don’t love running, but I know staying fit and healthy makes me a better in other areas of live. I’m not training for a marathon or anything. I am just trying to get a bit better every day.
At the end of my trail run today, I received a notification on my Nike+ Run Club app that I use to track my miles. The notification said, “Elite is about trying to be better today than you were yesterday.”
I really like that philosophy. Elite isn’t trying to be the best. Elite isn’t trying to be better than other people. The realm of the elite is reserved for those who strive to continuously improve themselves. Our world need more people like this. We need more people to stop competing with one another, and start focusing on simply being a bit better each day!
With that in mind, how are you going to be better today than yesterday? I’m going to run a bit farther and read a bit more before bed tonight.
How will you choose to be elite?
