Recently I had the pleasure to work with a triathlete on improving her swim. I identified we needed to spend a deliberate amount of time working on her body position and getting her longer and more relaxed in the water. Everything we do in life is done more efficiently from a state of relaxation. She was easily getting frustrated, and I said that she will simply need to give the stroke the time it deserves to improve. She muttered to me “I can’t seem to get this. I want to swim like my training partner.” I indicated she surely will.

Earl Nightingale summed it up so appropriately in saying: “We tend to minimize the things we can do, the goals we can reach, and yet, for some equally strange reason, we think others can do the things that we cannot.” When embarking on a new endeavor, you will need to concede to time and understand the prize is in the process; give room to develop, and even though with the lack of physical evidence, trust the process.
