The gatorade girl
Over the last six years, as editor of this magazine, I’ve been lucky enough to interview some very extraordinary people. Most of them are just everyday people like you and me—writers, artists, athletes, ranchers, politicians, mothers, sportsmen—but with a little something different. They all have an ability to excel at what they do and the desire to never give up.
One of the things I always ask myself is, “How do these people do it? What is it that makes them put their minds and bodies through pain and torture and then go back for more?” Sure, they’ll talk about the challenge of what they do. They’ll talk about the love and passion they have for the game. They’ll talk about testing themselves and about their goals. They may even tell you that you can't understand it unless you do it yourself.
I may not be able to understand why someone wants to be a champion long distance runner or a great architect, but I totally understand why they do it.
George Mallory, the first man to climb Mount Everest was asked why he did it. His response, “Because it’s there.” You may think he climbed Mount Everest for fame and fortune, but that’s not the case. Mallory simply could no more avoid the mountain than an artist can avoid creating or the long distance runner running or the politician wanting to win. They set their minds to it and they never stop. What can we learn for the people who excel? Here's my take on it. If you want something, if you want to change your life, then get off the sofa and go. Do it because you want to do it. Do it because you need to do it. Do it because it's your, "Because it's there.”
