Don’t listen to negative influences. Believe in yourself, and show others what you can do. Only you can find your own potential.
~ Marla Runyan, two-time Olympian for the 1500m and 5000m; via the Runner’s World desk calendar, February 27, 2013
I spend far too much time trying to listen to others and use their input to determine my path. It’s not that they don’t believe in me, it’s that they aren’t me. As the world-class athlete Marla Runyon states above, it’s up to each of us to determine who we want to be and to start telling our story the way we want it to be told.
