Enhance your Life ,Set a Goal

"The tragedy in life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach."– Benjamin Mays

How many of you think about goal accomplishment?  When younger, (20s, 30s, 40s) goal achievement might be related to such things as education or career. However, when a little bit older (50s, 60s) our goals likely change. What is important is that we have a goal which allows us to think about future. Not only that, but we can do research, plan, evaluate, synthesize and use our brain which is necessary for productive and healthy living.
At the age of 80, Yuichiro Miura scaled Mount Everest. This man also scaled Everest at youthful ages of 70 and 75. At the moment he holds the record for being the oldest to reach the world’s highest peak. I do not know when this man first thought about climbing Mount Everest but I do know it had to be prior to age 70.
At the age of 80, Dr. Jim Steere became the oldest to complete the 100 mile one day equestrian Tevis Cup race. This veterinarian and equestrian were around horses for most of his life. As a teenager, he rode some 90+ miles by himself (for 3 days) going from his father’s home to his mother’s. This man had plenty of goals that allowed him to live life to the fullest.
At the age of 82, Lew Hollander completed the Hawaiian Iron Man thereby giving him the record of the oldest to complete the event. Lew also completed the Western States 100 mile one-day endurance run. Being an accomplished horseman, he also completed the Tevis Cup and is a member of the American Endurance Ride Conference Hall of Fame. Even today, Dr. Hollander does not have difficulty with goal setting.
Sharon “Shay” Bintliff, in her late 70s, is the oldest female to ever complete the famous Wahineo Ke Kai Outrigger canoe race from the island of Molokai to Oahu.Doc Shay was on one of the two women Outrigger canoes in 1975. On that date that was the first crossing (40.8 Miles) accomplished by women paddlers.
To learn more about Jim, Lew, Sharon and others I recommend “it Has Nothing To Do With Age .Do not forget to set ego or task goals because it’s good for you.
Tomorrow’s exciting as Tony and I are hosting our first TV talk show on ACT television. This is a brand-new venture for both of us. And once again, I practice what I preach regarding goal setting.  I’m thinking and planning about future guests for our program. Mike Keller of the Dallas Cowboys is our guest this week. Next week, Tim Twietmeyer and Mark Falcone will join our program. Your suggestions, for future guests, are welcomed.
Today, Tony, Linda and I had fun as we skyped.
Don’t forget to keep moving, laughing, smiling and deep breathing.
