Let’s say you have no races, you have no classes, no nothing: there’s no purpose in your life. You know, people need to have purpose to get up, they need purpose to perform. You need to get to a point in your life where there’s nothing on the docket, there’s no 5K, there’s no “I’m going to get into school to be this or that” and still perform to the highest level. Because what people don’t get is one day that thing’s going to come up and if you’re not constantly performing without purpose, you’re not going to be ready when the time comes.

It’s this magical thing, purpose, that we’re all looking for, but what’s funny about it all is that we need these things to perform but we don’t take a second to realize that the purpose is always there; the purpose never leaves us. Because the very purpose is you. You are always the purpose. There may be another purpose, like being a seal, or going to college or whatever, but the main purpose in life is you.

So if you wake up in the morning and you don’t want to do something, you don’t care enough about yourself. And that’s what you need to really research: “Why am I not doing this for myself?” Because that is the number one purpose in life: it is to better oneself. That’s the only purpose.
