“In the midst of an ordinary training day, I try to remind myself that I am preparing for the extraordinary.” Shalane Flanagan
In this episode, Cindra talks with TJ and Lisa about Shalane Flanagan, the recent New York Cities Marathon Winner. We use her as an example of how high performers go after their big goals with grit and patience. They dream one step above their comfort zone. They stick with their goals despite adversity, and setbacks. They remind themselves what they are going after each day. They build support of people around them and celebrate others successes.
High Performance Power Phrase: I go after my goals with passion and excitement. I know what I want, and every day I work toward my goals. I stay focused and gritty.
