It’s now a little over 7 weeks until the climb and the core team here are well into their fitness regimes… We’re not saying we could run a marathon right now but we are starting to feel the benefits!
Talking of marathons, it was the biggest marathon event of the year for the UK recently – the London Marathon! A huge challenge and achievement for many people and a chance for those who participated to test their physical and mental fitness!
Following the London Marathon, the BBC released a programme called Mind Over Marathon that many of our core members watched. This series followed 10 marathon runners suffering from different mental health issues and how they dealt with the tough training regime.
Resilience and perseverance shine through
What really became clear to me, was that even though these runners struggled and had many challenges to tackle they were resilient and persevered. Finishing the marathon gave the runners an amazing sense of personal achievement, which not only helped them to feel more confident about themselves in everyday life but also gave them the motivation to set more personal goals and achieve even greater success.
As business owners, we can easily get caught up in the day to day operations of our company, the here and now, and find there is little time to reflect on what we have and what we could do differently. It’s important to keep in mind that our employees, colleagues, suppliers and clients are all vital to the success of our business – let’s appreciate them and show them just how important they are to us!
No doubt, many of those that ran the marathon will consider it their major challenge of 2017. Here at base camp, we feel the same way about our own challenge: the couch to summit event.
Changing the mindset
Our virtual climb of Mount Everest is not only a great chance to help your employees and colleagues but also an opportunity to build your client and supplier relationships and even open up new business opportunities via our fun and friendly networking sessions on the day of the event.
Some of our participants are already seeing a change in their own and their team’s mental attitudes. Which is great news and something that we are proud to be part of.
