What Are You On?

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams.  Live the life you have imagined.” ~ Henry David Thoreau

For inspiration, watch this short video by Nike about Lance Armstrong.  It’s a great example of what commitment is all about.

Lance writes stories from his heart, aiming to inspire and motivate, as you align more fully with YOUR true peak. When he's not here, you can find him hanging out with his family, riding a bike, or just generally acting goofy.   Sign up for the Thoughts from the Treehouse newsletter and get additional inspiration in your email inbox!

“I’m on my bike busting my as* six hours a day”. Lance Armstrong is amazing. He’s a great example of mind over body and how we can accomplish anything if we want it hard enough and if we’re willing to do the work.

Hi Lance,

I love Nike’s slogan “Just Do It”. It’s short and to the point.

Thanks for sharing that video. I have recently finished reading a book about Lance Armstrong called “It’s not about the Bike” and his dedication, perseverance and commitment is absolutely phenomenal.

yeah – I get fed up with people thinking that when you are successful at something, it sort of just happened – they don’t see the years that went into it (or choose not to).

Cheers Lance – Robin

@Marelisa – He really is a great example of going after what you want, and working hard to achieve it!

@Evelyn – Lance (Armstrong) really shows his dedication, and this is a great clip about it.

@Linda – I love that quote too. It really gives me hope that I can accomplish whatever I want, if I want it bad enough.

@Barbara – Their slogan is perfect for their brand, and it is just a great life slogan as well.

@Leanne – I’ve read that book as well, and it’s amazing what he has overcome to get to where he is today.

@Robin – that is so true, and I’m realizing it more the older I get. Most people are where they are at because of the effort (or lack of) they put into their life. You get out what you put in.

@Bamboo Forest – Thanks!

Food for thought indeed. I think most of us cannot commit for 24 hours on any activity on a given day. We can learn from him, and commit fully to the activity on hand
