How far have you come in a year?

Lisanne Vos (getfoxfit)

Have you ever taken the time to think back to where you were 1 year ago today?

Too often we get caught up in our day and week that we seldomly think about and, more importantly, appreciate how far we have come.

I have done it myself throughout the years – focusing on wanting things immediately (or yesterday) and not taking the time to realise what you have been though in the last year and what you have achieved.

A quote that speaks to me today, more than ever, is the following:

 

Take pride in how far you have come and have faith in how far you can go.

 

Especially as I look at the date and remember that 1 year ago today I was in the hospital having surgery for renal cell carcinoma or, more simply put, kidney cancer.  I remember it like yesterday, as pictured above – walking to the hospital with Mr Fox, Universal gym bag on my shoulder in my sweat pants and Nike Free’s and an “Athlete” mentality.

No matter the pain or what my body had to go through that day I would recover as best as I could with this new found athlete way of thinking – from this day out, after the Surgeon had ‘cleaned’ my body I would respect it as best as I could through the proper nutrition, exercise and mentality, and as an extra bonus work towards getting myself on stage and compete in my first IFBB competition.

So, how far have we come?  Well – 1 year ago I couldn’t walk, or even sit up in bed.  Even with the epidural and endless pain medications my body felt like it had been ran over by a bull dozer and any movements I made felt like an internal thunder and lightening storm.  Just crazy.

No words will ever say how grateful I am to my Surgeon who saved my life, as well as all the Dr’s, nurses and specialists who diagnosed me and got me ‘back on my feet’.  As weird as it sounds the Maasstad Ziekenhuis holds a very special place in my heart, and it’s always a pleasure to go there every 3 months for my check ups and tests – I have safe in the knowledge that I’m in the best of hands there.  (If ever you are in need I would highly recommend this hospital!).

The conclusion of my little story… take a moment and think about where you were this time last year.  What has changed, what have you achieved?  Take that knowledge and think about how far you would like to go.  Where would you like to be 1 year from now?  Set yourself goals and execute them day by day.

Wishing you all a wonderful day, make magic happen!

Why you have to lose sight of the shore…

Bikini Competitor Lisanne Vos (www.getfoxfit.com)

“You can never cross the ocean unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore” – Christopher Columbus

 

Coming from a person who would always take the least riskiest approach, these are such awesome and powerful words.

This quote really helps you to re-think not only where you are currently at and what you want, but how you have to leave your ‘safe zone’ to reach your goal.

Please don’t waste your energy on worrying

If you want something in life you need to ‘un-worry’ yourself about the things that may go wrong; the doubts, the risks, what could, or may/may not happen… those emotions and thoughts serve no purpose.  As a born worrier I know what it’s like to over think things and worry about ALLLLLL the things that could happen – it’s wasted negative energy.  And that precious energy can be far better spent on positive thoughts, ambitious thinking and actionable doing.

Why you need to lose sight of the shore

Over this past year I have had many learnings, the biggest being that in order to progress in life you have to let go of the safe and the familiar.  You need to take that first step and you need to get out your comfort zone.  If you want to move forward with your life you need to make a choice, make a plan and take steps that may seem scary at first but will bring you closer to what you want.

No matter what it is – a new career move, a new friendship, a new hobby, a new lifestyle, a new family tradition, a new place to call home, a new study, a new way of eating, a new venture… whatever.

You have one life so, seize the day and do what makes you happy.

What’s the worst that can happen?  It doesn’t work out?!  So what!  You tried and that’s more than if you were to just sit there and wonder ‘what could have been’ whilst worrying unnecessarily about all the stuff that may/may not happen.

In order to get to where you want to be you need to leave the shore.

Just Do It

To those who keep thinking about changes they want to make in their lives: stop thinking – start doing.

Start planning and start taking small baby steps each and every day to inch yourself further to your dream / ambition / goal / idea.

Use your internal compass to guide you, start drawing your ‘map’ and set sail.

And please please enjoy the journey – the hours, weeks, months it may take you.

The joy and the pleasure and the hard work and the sweat and the tears and the frustrations and the moments when you want to throw in the towel – those are the moments that make you, build personal progress and growth.  Good character building stuff, as my mum would say.

You will look back and cherish both the good and challenging memories so dearly – they make reaching your goal all that more worth while.

Your journey and your voyage is your legacy, don’t forget that!

So, un-hook your anchor, set off on your exciting voyage and spread those sails!  New, and magical, lands are waiting for you…

What would you lose sight of the shore for?

Special thanks to Dave Vartan for my beautiful leg piece – a total work of art, which is a constant reminder to set sail and embark on new journeys.
