Alton Towers: Facing The Fear…



alton towers

Amy & I went to Alton Towers yesterday & we LOVED it!

However, when it came to jumping on some of rides I don’t mind admitting, I was a bit nervous!

I mean some of the rides are very INTENSE & very FAST!

Whilst I was convincing myself it would all be ok, I realised we were surrounded by kids who were a literally a fraction of my age, so I thought to myself:

’If these kids can do it, so can I’…

However, this comparison is bit flawed:

Kids have no fear, no reference points, no real experience to draw on, & no real sense of consequence…

It’s often as adults that we develop fear, anxiety, stress, worry, & self-doubt…

Life can become more stressful as adults as we tend to have experienced more pain & we see that the world isn’t always perfect.

In turn, we develop fear, we become anxious & worried, we panic & we doubt ourselves….but these kids were simply living in the moment, blissfully free from fear.

You can apply this to any of your goals:

I guarantee that what is holding you back is fear.

Tackling your goals (in or out of the gym) can be scary & intimidating, but as ever, if I can help you in anyway, please do give me a shout…

That’s all for today, until the next time,

Tristan ‘jelly legs’ Buttle.

P.S – Have you been to Alton Towers? If so whats your fav ride?
