In my morning reading this article reminded me of something we look for in triathletes here at Accelerate 3. Are you an process oriented triathlete or a results oriented triathlete?
We’ve found over the years that athletes who look forward to the process of getting faster tend to get faster faster, do better overall and stick with triathlon for a longer period of time. Athletes who are focused on how they place in races as their primary motivation tend to get discouraged by the work required to achieve their goals. They want the outcome. The day after day after day after week after week after month after month after month commitment usually required by triathlon or any sport, to achieve the desired outcomes is not an easy road to travel down.
Lots of people want to be rock stars they just aren’t willing to put in the time required to be a rock star.
