Inspire Me – Iron Cowboy

James “Iron Cowboy” Lawrence completed 50 Ironman triathlons, in 50 states, in 50 days.

Together with his daughter Lucy, they share that success is achieved in the mind much quicker than in the body.

I was introduced to this video by David Robertson, My Virtual Mentor. The Iron Cowboy sure made an impression on me.

The James Lawrence story is quite remarkable. Even in the best shape of my life as a young student athlete in the 1980s, I can hardly imagine the level of training, discipline, and raw tenacity it would take to complete 50 Ironman triathlons, in 50 days, in all 50 states. Incredible!

A feat like that seems humanly impossible, but I think that’s the point of the Iron Cowboy’s quote, “Whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right.

If I believe in my mind that such a thing is impossible, then it is. I’ve defeated myself before even getting started. But if I choose to believe I can, and I train my mind to know it, then I surely can! I’m right either way. Watch video.

I know another man who said something similar. Do you know Him?
