Ben Davis and His 120-Pound Journey Continues

Ben Davis does life… very well these days.

I saw this video when it came out a couple of years ago and saw it again this past weekend. When I watched the first time, I teared up at the end when I realized the Ironman finish line Ben Davis was crossing was Ironman Louisville, which I had raced the year before in 2009. I haven’t had to lose 120lbs but I know the journey to Ironman all to well.

I see videos like this and I’m continually inspired to do more and go farther than I’ve ever gone.

I watch this video and think the same thing about Ben that I do about me when it comes to change.

If I can do it, you can do it.

Don’t ever think life can’t change for you.

Don’t ever think you can’t put your mind to something and accomplish something bigger.

Don’t ever think you have to settle for a life you don’t want or one that’s not healthy.

God gives us the ability to go beyond what we think we are capable of.

When you watch this video, don’t think to yourself… I’ll never be able to do that.

If Ben Davis can do it, you can do it.

You have to want to do it.

Since this video, Ben has been running like crazy and doing well. You can follow his progress on his blog Ben Does Life and follow him on twitter. @bendoeslife
