This year, I took on my first IRONMAN challenge.
I learnt so much about myself on this journey, lessons that relate not just to training but to how I live my life and the way I chase down my biggest goals.
I’d really like to share three of my biggest lessons with you.
1. Consistency is key
What I’m learning time and time again is that success is really all about consistency. When it comes to training, it’s not about flogging yourself. The ‘no pain, no gain’ philosophy doesn’t work for the long game. But showing up everyday and taking small consistent steps towards the goal does work.
It’s the same with so many of the goals that we set for ourselves. Whether we want to lose weight, run a marathon, finish a University degree, get out of debt or build a new business … it all comes down to consistency.
2. You have truly unlimited potential
I’ve learnt that we are so much more capable than we realise – the bottom line is, if you do the work, you’re gonna get to where you wanna go.
3. You gotta celebrate the small stuff!
I congratulate myself for showing up to train every single day – each session I do, even the terrible ones, every step I take towards the Ironman start line, I celebrate.
When you choose to take on a challenge, you are choosing to show up in your life – that demands celebration!
