Human potential can be unlimited according to some scholar and scientific research while to me; it’s not really a valid assumption since I haven’t seen anyone with the ability to fly. I personally don’t like those people posting selfies when they are in the gym claiming that they have been working out for this long because I think one man’s pride is nothing compared to another one’s. However, the story took place last week changed my mind.
Josh is a friend of my who loves to post this type of selfies, last Monday he posted a picture of a phone app claiming that he had run 5 miles straight which isn’t that impressive. I have another friend on my Facebook ran 10 miles on a daily basis, and I don’t see him posting a picture of his running map at all. So automatically when I see Josh’s word about how proud he is because he had done 5 miles, I left a comment on his status saying that “ok, make it 10 miles, and we’ll talk.”
Yesterday, Josh posted another picture that @myname with a running map of 10 miles. He further commented on that pictures with the following words: Thanks for challenging me to complete a 10 miles run, I never thought I could have done it, but I did, thank you.”
This made me laugh with my thoughts on the problem. I think motivation comes from multiple directions and with a competitive heart, all we got do is to pull the trigger somehow in one’s mind and maybe the potential is unlimited for our human being. I applause for Josh and I even felt pretty good myself since I kind of felt like that I have done something to assist him realizing his dream. We all should try it sometimes because it felt like worthy of doing it after all.
