Goals,Implementing Intentions and Success

Part 2
"Believe that you can do it, under any circumstances. Because if you believe you can, then you really will. That belief just keeps you searching for the answers, then pretty soon you get it."– Wally "Famous" Amos

Another idea  for goal success is related to expectancy .Expectancy is associated with  one’s aspiration level. And, aspiration level  is  connected  to  one’s history of success or positive or negative reinforcement  with  the task at hand. For example, let’s say a walker  wants to compete in his first 10K trail run (6.2 miles); but has only walked down the trail six times for about 30 minutes each time.  This would suggest that this individual has limited conditioning. As a result, it would likely be difficult for this person to run the entire way. So, a more reasonable approach would be to  set  a goal of walking the entire 10K.
 If there was an absence of running history, at this point, it would be foolish to expect to run 6.2  miles on the trail. It would be much better and smarter to start with a  success  experience. A more realistic training would be to do a walk- run for 30 minutes (keeping track of walking time) on the trail, evaluate, and go from there. one can always increase the amount of running as well as the running speed by keeping a journal of the experience. No one really knows how quickly the individual would be able to go from walking 30 minutes at a time to running for 30 minutes of time. What is important is to begin. Remember, it is not what you hope to do; it is what you expect to do.
Remember to set realistic or achievable goals. Having a positive expectancy helps. Put goals and expectations to work for your success. If you do, I guarantee   success.

Today, Chris, Secretariat and I had a great time running  at Cronan Ranch. We did 14.5 to 15.5 miles we were tired but overall felt great.  Remember to keep moving
