A while ago, like 4 or 5 years, I simply couldn’t have a conversation at a dinner party with someone, because of the ambient noise, other people talking, and everything else that would distract me made it impossible. It was impossible because I couldn’t focus on what they were saying, such that while I heard the noise they were making, I simply couldn’t “assemble” it into a full-thought. However, how it made me feel made me determined to overcome. I know that “they” say that that’s something that’s either impossible, or too difficult to want to start.
I started with Soldiers of Fitness ten years ago, it ingrained in me the notion that quitting isn’t an option, and that I’m to go all the way, and then some. The concept of not succeeding wasn’t something that I thought possible, and I was determined to succeed. I didn’t get any pro-help, because I figured that they’d simply tell me that it’s impossible, and I shouldn’t even try.
As I’m typing this, I’m listening to the radio in my left ear. Not simply music, but hosted (KISS FM), so the hosts would come on, tell stories, and “talk” to me.
