I TOLD YOU SO - I'm useless.
I never let myself think that I'm fit enough, good enough, clever enough, funny enough ... too be successful.
I call it "Managing Expectations."
I met a therapist a few years ago who laughed and said ...
"Nope. You're not managing expectations. You're taking out an insurance policy. So that you can say to yourself ... I TOLD YOU SO. So that when something doesn't work out, at least you can say I TOLD YOU SO ... I'm useless."
I'm terrified of living life without my insurance policies.
But last Friday night ... the night before the Rotorua Half Marathon .... I didn't sign the insurance policy. So, without it, I had to allow myself thoughts of hopefulness and excitement and positivity.
It was hard. It was tough to do.
But I did it.
And I had the run of my life. Bestest. Fastest. Happiest.
I TOLD YOU SO - I can run a half marathon.
