Recently I posted a quote on my Twitter and Facebook Page by Joe Paterno that said, “You’ve got to believe deep inside yourself that you’re destined to do great things!”
Our coaches, friends, family and training partners all believe in us, however, by not believing in our own ability, it may prove detrimental to our performance. There have been times when I was competing that I underestimated myself and it proved to be my own demise. After discovering triathlons, I realized any thing is possible. After not being involved in competitive sports once I graduated college, a dear friend of mine got me hooked. I was hesitant at first, but after believing in myself and my ability I was able to complete my first triathlon. I experienced the ups and downs of training, but even to this day, I never once second-guessed myself. Believe in yourself, believe in your ability, and you will be sure to crush the competition!!
