Why do people not like to venture out into the world when it is raining? I believe that it is because of what we experience when we are children.
Our mothers (or guardians) have brainwashed it into our brains. They have placed a image that going outside while it is raining or cold will make you sick. That is a total lie. People get sick in the winter because people tend to hole up inside their houses and bacteria is spread all that easier. They do not have the proper ventilation in side of their homes and, what causes the most trouble is, the heating system. The dry air leads to dry nasal passage ways and that helps in giving viruses a “toehold” in your system. Read more here.

Running. Many people undervalue this amazing and essential sport. It is literally the base of almost every sport from tennis to football. There is now way that you are going to catch a football in a game without running (unless the other team has no sense of defense). I, as runner, see in society all the time where people don’t care for running.
For example, in high school my cross country team had placed in the southern regional ranking in the southern part of the state as eighth. The top seven teams advanced to the state meet. We had missed the state meet by a mere four points. We were essentially later ranked as 13th in the state. That was a major accomplishment for my team and the school for we had never gotten that close to going to that state meet. Later that week the people posted on the school website that we had placed as seventh in the meet and had just missed the state meet. We contacted several times to fix the mistake but they did not. It might seem as a petty thing to argue about, but it seemed as a big deal to me and to my team.

The mentality of people dictates the world and how far those people go to reach their goals. There are some people that after a few hardships and they quit and drop out of their task. Then there are others that follow and push on in whatever path that they are on until the day that they die. These are the types of people that achieve their goals and become the leaders of this world.
(Yes, this is Neil Pactrick Harris who plays Barney Stinson from the show How I Met You Mother, which is a great show, but the thing about his character is that he is always very, very persistent.)
I, personally feel that I have a medium high mental strength. When I pursue a goal I do almost everything in my power to reach that goal. I believe that I achieved this mental strength through running (I run competitively). Running in my opinion is one of the most challenging sports in the history of sports ( it was THE FIRST sport). I remember a few weeks ago I was participating in a 5K , and within the first half mile, I had the urge to drop out for my body was protesting against every step. Even through that, I muscled my way through and I attained a medal in the race and also helped my team place in the top three.
People with mental stability and power can go through a lot of pain still push through to meet their goals. sadly not everyone in the community is this way. We cannot push through like what others. Some people May maybe weak or they just have had too much to deal with in their lives at the moment. But, the people that push through are the ones that go above and beyond. These people feel a certain satisfaction from accomplishing (I know that I get a “kick” out of completing an assignment or race).
I know that Tejas (my partner), posted about how children have no limits to their imagination and that is certainly true, but only with age can we come to appreciate the goals that we want and be able to push ourselves to the objective.
