Statistics on the matter vary. I’ve read that 4 out of 5 individuals fail to keep their New Year’s resolutions long term. I’ve read that 97% of people actually don’t. There seems to be a consensus that 1 out of 4 people blow their resolutions in the first week.
Whatever the case, according to statistics, YOU WILL FAIL.
That’s not being vicious. It’s just a reality. If I were a betting man, I’d be a fool to put my money on your keeping your resolution this year.
But, however, I must consider a variable. A wild card.
You are reading The Spartan Race blog. You are a fan of Spartan Races. You might already be a Spartan.
That certainly throws a wrench into my odds – for you just might understand taking up a challenge. You wouldn’t be here unless you believed that personal betterment and, ultimately, greatness, is within your own reach.
In short, you just might not be AVERAGE.
Because there go my averages.
Only time will tell. Spartan Races wants to see your resolutions achieved. We hope to see it in your resolute face at the starting line, confident that you’ve done your training. Confident because you took 2011’s start as an opportunity to get less apathetic and more aggressive in your fitness goals.
Here at Spartan Races we are tired of average. We strive to be the best we can be at everything we do. Modesty does not keep one from saying “I want to be great.” Fear does.
So put yourself on the line. Say that you’re going to do something this year.
And do it.
