Malibu Triathlon, September 18, 2022.
6. Face down your fears.
I took the time to look around me and to take it all in – the waters, the shoreline, the sun shining down on us and I thought it was an incredibly humbling experience to be a part of this event with countless volunteers and logistics that were involved in putting this together and closing down some of the lanes on the Pacific Coast Highway.
Don’t worry what everyone around you is doing. Focus on yourself and can you be better than the last time you did something.
In the transition area from the swim to bike section, I was too busy looking for my friends’ bikes, wondering if they had made it out of the swim okay. Lost in thought, I had worn my running shoes without putting my shorts on top of my swimsuit! Needless to say, I lost some time here. Don’t waste time getting lost. For example, when you go to put that social media post for your business and get sidetracked for hours scrolling through TikTok or Instagram. Not good.
Take time to celebrate the wins, big and small. You deserve it.
Apply these lessons to other goals and visions you have for 2023.
