There are many inspiring people, and events in the world. However, there’s also a lot of other stuff to bog you down and distract you from some of the amazing things that are going on. So today I am taking a moment to share an inspiration.
Today, my fitness inspiration is a person. Her name is Muffy Davis and she has won medals and awards for skiing and cycling. She was inducted into the US Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame in 2010. She is a mother and wife. She scuba dives, rides elephants, travels the world, and has navigated the Great Wall of China. She is also a motivational speaker. Pretty inspiring list of accomplishments huh?
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that she is paraplegic. She crushed her spine in a skiing accident in 1989. Since then she has won all of the medals listed below.
So anytime you feel like you “can’t” do something I would like you to take a second and remember this woman. Maybe whatever is giving you a hard time won’t feel so impossible. I believe that you can accomplish whatever you put your mind to. So if you set your mind to failure that’s what you’re going to get. So get rid of that mindset. Check out Muffy’s website, and prepare to be inspired.
What inspires you? What have you been telling yourself you can’t do? Maybe it’s time to reconsider.
