“Taking Baby Steps”

“Taking Baby Steps”

We all have to start somewhere. It is the same for each and every one of us. In order to achieve any accomplishment, great or small, we have to begin.  The time changes this weekend which means Spring is finally coming (we hope!).  It is a great time of year to review the basics of achievement.

 

Taking Baby Steps

 

We see repeatedly around us through amazing achievements that anything is possible.  The same principals apply to all great achievements – work, determination, and perseverance.  Everything we do happens by choice, not chance. Achievers set goals, make a plan, and then execute daily to meet their objectives. You can’t leave your running shoes in the closet.

 

The good news is we all have unique god given abilities to develop in order to be the best we can be. When we do that we truly have the power to influence the future in a very positive manner.   When we are the best we can be we make to world around us better too.  

Over the coming weeks we will explore some of the building blocks of achievement. This will be an ongoing series. It is not going to be complicated, but that doesn’t mean it is easy. There are no secrets – continual work, progress, and execution are the building blocks.

We’ll start with “Baby Steps” but we will be full speed soon. Thanks for joining me.

Taking steps,

David

Choose Success

Choose Success

They are the best and the brightest I have ever seen!   Our upcoming generation of students have unlimited potential and I think they will “Change the World!”  I recently had tho privilege of making six 90 minute presentations to freshman at Reynolds High School.

Although I’ve made 100s of presentations to 1000s of students over the past 30 years or so, I never cease to get re-energized and optimistic about our future!   Students today are bright and motivated.  They don’t suffer from the barriers of social, racial, and economical limitations.

In the presentations entitled “Choose Success” I encouraged and reminded the students to Dream Big, No Excuses and Never Give Up!  We discussed real life issues and pressures that they face daily which cuts across all spectrums and backgrounds.  An abbreviated version of the presentation can be seen here:

It always surprises me a bit how favorable they respond to metaphors particularly using triathlon and Ironman stories.  Although I think some are rather corny they tend to like them and somehow relate. Interestingly, the students always seem to focus in when I share the Ironman Everyday Hero video, shown here:

Please join me in continuing to encourage and support our young people on their path to success.  It takes all of us working together in our own way to for the success of our communities in the future.

Choose success,

David

Piecing It All Together

Piecing It All Together

Whew! Life can really be a whirlwind! So, how do we do everything we want to do without things spinning out of control?

 

As the old saying goes, busy people get more done. Why is this? Certainly there are lots of reasons, but a major factor is that these busy people have developed a system that allows them to accomplish more. Systems organize your choices and decision making.

If you have been a reader here for any length of time you are familiar with The Four Anchors. The Four Anchors is not any sort of magic, it is simply a system for decision making and organizing priorities in your life. This system, for which I believe there is abundant scientific support, allows us to do more and do it more successfully than if we pursue life by chance.

So, using the various aspects of our lives that have meaning as the template for our choices and decisions makes our daily paths easier to navigate. Using our physical, family, professional, and spiritual priorities as a daily matrix makes it much easier to priorities and execute on life’s challenges.

A very critical factor that we all must face is that having an organized life is a matter of choice, not chance. It is an active decision we all must make. Failure to consciously choose becomes an excuse for the ensuing chaos and ultimate failure. Then, once we make that decision we must execute it daily on a consistent basis.

The good news is that if we have the courage and discipline to execute our lives with a system for decision making, we are then rewarded with a lifetime of fulfillment and satisfaction. Certainly it is just like anything else, there is no reward without hard work.

Still piecing it together,
David

It Really Happened!

It Really Happened!

We preciously wrote on crazy dreams. Dreams include facing challenges. Challenges frame us and mold us. They prepare us to be better in the future. They make us better than we could have been.

Finish

My toes danced (dragged?) Down Ali’i drive to finish the Hawaii Ironman World Triathlon Championship for the seventh time over the past 23 years. This time really challenged and tested me but I was thrilled to finish this iconic race.

Perhaps the challenge is the ultimate reason for Ironman racing. Most of us get into it as a challenge to do something we were not really sure were able to do. This motive helps us to face other challenges in our lives.

Challenges give us energy. Energy that can propel us through our entire life. Challenges make us active and vibrant. Further, they keep us reaching and strive as we seek a life of fulfillment and satisfaction.

Challenges teach us persistence and determination. These twin traits perpetually transcend us and make us better. These traits allow us to fulfill our expectations and keep us moving in a positive direction. Desire for achievement is fueled by persistence and determination. Moreover, they create a belief in our self that allows us to accomplish more than we once ever thought possible.

Finally, challenges reward us with results. Even if they test us and end up to be more difficult than we thought, the thrill of accomplishment launches us forward toward future successes. Facing challenges makes dreams come true!

Make it happen,
David

Support

On the eve of the Hawaii Ironman World Triathlon Championship it is very moving to have all of the support and encouragement that I have received.     Missing my family is surely the  hardest part of this trip – I miss and love them so much!   Cindy and the kids are my everything!

The support from back home is incredible.  Many, many thanks to the AH Warriors who sent me this photo this afternoon:

AHWarriors

And, how about top pro and  good friend Dirk Bockel who took the time and was right there to greet me.  He was surrounded by press and still was kind enough to share a moment.

IMG_5823

Then at bike check-in the volunteers were unbelievable, including long time friend and super volunteer Katie Burke who greeted me at the bike entrance.

IMG_5824

This race is very humbling.  In this crowd I am very average and good day will put me in the middle of the pack (MOP).  It certainly causes  me to pause and reflect on on the things that are the most important.  Clearly the support of family, co-workers, and friends trumps any athletic accolades.

Many thanks to all – you collectively brought me to tears and I appreciate it beyond words.

Thank you for the support,

David

Hello from Kailua-Kona and the Big Island of Hawaii! A special welcome to my kids’ classes at Summit School and Reynolds High School, as well as family, Daggett Shuler Team, friends, and Triathletes around the world! Thank you for joining me, and for your support of my family and me.

Mokuaikaua Church

Mokuaikaua Church

I went to Church this morning at Mokuaikaua Church which is the oldest Christian Church in Hawaiian Islands (1820). The steeple in the photo is very prominent from Kailua Bay and is often seen in Ironman TV coverage. They were very welcoming to Ironman competitors. Below is a photo of me with the Pastor.  He called me out by name during the sermon “I know David from North Carolina will thank God when he sees the finish line.”  I joined the congregation for coffee and treats after the service – they have good coffee here!

IMG_5633

Earlier I went for a swim on the course in Kailua Bay. The water was clear and the swells were low . . . we’ll see if this lasts. It is like swimming in an aquarium there are so many fish, a beautiful coral reef, and other sea life. Fortunately no jellyfish or sharks.

This place is magical, and this week is as big as it gets in the triathlon world! Athletes are arriving from every Continent and speaking many languages. The locals are ready for us and I’ve felt nothing but full hospitality. The Ironman is the Super Bowl of the sport, and the buzz is already in the air.

The Hawaii Ironman is an interesting dynamic. Sure, it is a race for some. But for most of us it is more of a pilgrimage to participate on the sport’s biggest stage and with the sport’s biggest stars. For me is also the continuation of a journey – a journey of self discovery. I am always anxious to see what I will find!

My plan is to try to update this site daily this week. There is also a link to the slideshow on the right side bar. Several of you have asked about the news coverages and those are linked also. Lastly, here is a link to race day coverage(click on “live Coverage). If there is anything you would particularly like to see, just let me know and I’ll try to get it done.

Again, many thanks for the encouragement – We are looking forward to a great day! “He ‘Olina Leo Ka Ke Aloha” – Hawaiian proverb, which means “Joy is the voice of love.” Let us go forth with love!

Crazy Dreams

Crazy Dreams

How do you see yourself? How do you view the world around you? Do you see what is, or do you see what is possible? Dream it, believe it, execute a plan, and make it happen!

1990 Hawaii Ironman

1990 Hawaii Ironman

Imagine this – more than 30 years ago I had a crazy dream to do an Ironman someday. I even dreamed of doing the Hawaii Ironman, someday. After a number of years of diligent training, traveling around the world racing and doing qualifiers, it finally happened. In 1990 I qualified to compete in the Hawaii Ironman World Triathlon Championship! Crossing that finish line was a “crazy dream” come true.

Now, preparing for my seventh time at the Hawaii Ironman I still harbor crazy dreams and look forward to that hallowed finish line. The journey has taught me a lot of simple life lessons, and a lot about me.

If you have a crazy dream, you can make it happen. To do it you have to start now, start today, and don’t quit until you achieve the goal. In all aspects of our lives we have a choice and that choice is to execute a plan to go after our dreams, or procrastinate the time away and it will never happen. Either way, just like out on the Ironman course, we determine the outcome of our own dreams.

We can’t sit around and wait for “someday,” or someday will never happen. We need to see the world as it can be. We need to see us as we can be. Dream, plan, and then deliver.

What are your crazy dreams? Make them happen by starting today and never, never give up until you reach that goal.

Still dreaming,

David

Mentors

Mentors

Do you have mentors?  Are you a mentor to others?  Mentors help shape us, mold us, and make us better versions of ourselves.  Likewise, we have the reciprocal responsibility to mentor others.

Clyde Dula, A Great Mentor

Clyde Dula, A Great Mentor

This week I was once again reminded of the value of mentors when I lost one of my main mentors.  Our friend, neighbor, and mentor Clyde Dula passed away this week.  He was a Marine, a World War II  veteran, a church leader, community leader, father, husband, and business owner.  Wow!  What an influence he had on our family and me!

Clyde will be missed and we are sad at his passing.  However, his influence will strongly continue to generations of people who looked up to him as a mentor.

Mentoring is so important because it guarantees that the important values and character traits get passed along from generation to generation.  Mentors set examples that are followed by others.

Mentoring provides leadership in areas that to us may seem easy or straightforward, but is a complete mystery to a younger person.  Life experiences of mentors provide mentees with an experienced friend who can guide us through any number of situations.

Mentors many times have a transforming impact on the lives of another.  Many times, mentors become lifelong heroes!  Certainly Clyde Dula is a hero of ours and has had a transforming impact not only on us, but on our children too.

Mentors help improve a young person’s self-esteem.  Statistically, young people with mentors are less likely to get in trouble with the law, or to have problems with alcohol and drugs.

We all need mentors, and we all need to be a mentor to others.  Thank you Clyde for being a mentor to me, and now it’s our turn to carry on your example for others.

Thanks for the mentoring, Clyde,

David

Positive Lifestyle

Positive Lifestyle

Recently, another in-depth and long-term academic study came out and was in all the news.  The conclusion was shocking . . .  “Diets don’t work!”.  As part of the conclusion, they found that the only thing that does work is creating a positive lifestyle change.

High School Cross Country - Positive Lifestyle

High School Cross Country – Positive Lifestyle

Of course, we all know that, don’t we?  Virtually every study that has ever been done on the subject has shown that diets don’t work.  Yet, the diet industry is huge!  There are hundreds and thousands of books on dieting.  Moreover, the diet industry is a multi-billion-dollar-a-year industry.  As the market continues to grow it is ironic that obesity is increasing at an alarming rate.

In the past we have talked about binges.  “Diets” even if pursued with good intentions are a form of a binge.  Binges do not work and do not last.  For the vast majority of people these health and dietary issues are all related to lifestyle.

So, what are we to do?  Unfortunately, it seems everyone is looking for a quick fix or an easy path to a healthy and resultantly successful lifestyle.  We seem to look for the magic program or magic solution.  The only magic is that there is no magic.

The answer is exactly the same as it is with any other worthwhile pursuit.  We have to make forward progress, one step at a time, knowing that consistent execution over an extended period of time is always successful.  This takes discipline and perseverance.

The good news is that discipline and perseverance consistently over an extended period of time is 100 percent guaranteed to create a positive lifestyle, including a successful “diet.”  Now, that’s a guarantee we can count on!

Working the positive lifestyle daily,

David

Truly Important

Truly Important

What is truly important to you?  Is this where you focus your time and energy?  Identifying what is truly important to us, and then focusing our time, energy, and life resources in the proper direction leads to a life of satisfaction and fulfillment.

Truly Important!

Truly Important!

Focusing on what is truly important takes deliberate, conscious effort to stay focused and on track.  Otherwise, it seems that human nature tends to pull us into a myriad of time-consuming activities that distracts us from what is truly important and also wastes our valuable time and energy.

We see it all around us, and many times we even see it in ourselves.  We get so caught up in the hustle and bustle of life that all of a sudden we find that we have lost track of what is truly important to us.  In the meantime we get frustrated with ourselves and with others too.  Things seem out of control, and we lose our destiny.

It was the desire to focus life on the truly important that led to the development of The Four Anchors.  The Four Anchors became a filter, or template for life, to keep the truly important at the forefront and in full focus.  This simply system and philosophy for life allows us to easily weed out all of the distractions and time-consuming clutter that interferes with our personal journey.

Perhaps counter-intuitively, focusing on the truly important also allows us to accomplish much more.  This is why, as the old saying goes, “If you want something done, ask a busy person to do it.”  Busy people have learned to keep the truly important, important so that they can continue to get those things done.

If we keep the truly important, important, and resist getting mired down in the unimportant minutia of life, our road to success is not only easier and better, it is more fulfilling and satisfying along the way.

It’s truly important,

David

You Are Amazing!

You Are Amazing!

Did you know it?  Do you believe it?  You are truly amazing . . . you have gifts and talents that are beyond our everyday beliefs.  We need to control our beliefs and see them as they can be, rather than having our limiting beliefs control us.

Kids Are Amazing!

Kids Are Amazing!

Kids are amazing.  Until taught otherwise their beliefs are limitless.  They believe, they have fun, and they see the whole world in front of them.  We can be the same, too, if we believe. Our destiny is to be amazing!

Perhaps the greatest crime a person can commit is to waste their God-given talents.  We have both the privilege and the obligation of becoming the best person we can be.  Nobody can be a better you than you, and when you become your very best you are simply amazing!

Perhaps the words from Nelson Mandela’s speech in 1994 describe how amazing we are but at times fail to see:  “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure … it’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone.”

Don’t settle for mediocre.  Contentment and complacency limit us from being all we can be.  The road to excellence is a continual journey that we have to pursue daily.  As long as we continue the pursuit down the road we will be amazing.

Lastly, you have the power to change the world!  Once we realize, and believe, the amazing gifts and talents that we have, we can then use them to make our own little corner of the world better day by day, and piece by piece.  You are so amazing that now, it is your turn to go out and change the world!

I am amazed,

David

Why So Scared?

Why So Scared?

Do you ever get scared?  What affect does it have on you?  For me, this is Ironman week and I am scared!  Pre-event anxiety probably affects most of us.  The way we handle it has a definite impact on our performance results.

Why So Scared?

Why So Scared?

Fear is an interesting emotion.  I have completed more than 165 triathlons with 21 Ironman finishes.  So, why does the anxiety and fear still creep into my thoughts and emotions?  Certainly it is an uncomfortable feeling, but if used properly, it can be a helpful tool.

Saturday night Cindy turned her fear in to an age group win at the very competitive “Beat the Heat 5K.”  However, it was interesting watching the whole spectrun of emotion in lead up to this big race.  It was a bit like looking in the mirror!

First, let’s look at the downside.  We have to be very careful not to let our fears limit us.  If the pursuit is worthy, we cannot let fear stop us.  As an old friend of mine says, the difference between success and failure is whether you are willing to “toe the line.”  As in, put your toe on the starting line and go!  The common denominator for all successes in life is that it takes action, or toeing the line.

Likewise, we cannot allow fear to be used to rationalize subpar performance or to foreshadow content with mediocrity.  Many people get in a habit of rationalizing in advance, and it always tends to be a performance limiter.

There is a fine line between fear and positive anxiety.  We can turn this anxiety into positive excitement and anticipation that boost our performance.  The mind is very powerful, and we can use our mental “switch” to turn ourselves on for a positive performance.  Positive self affirmation turns our fear and anxiety into powerful mental stimulosus that helps us achieve more.

If we embrace our fears, we can turn them into a launching pad for positive performance.  In my case, I look forward to reporting on crossing the Ironman finish line for the 22nd time!

Just a little scared,

David

Twin Gifts

Twin Gifts

What personality traits do you most desire?  What over-arching qualities have we developed that serve us well on our road to satisfaction and fulfillment.  Let me suggest that the most valuable traits and the best gifts you can give yourself is to develop the twin gifts of courage and discipline.  Youth, and adult, sports is a great place to develop these gifts.

Twin Gifts

Twin Gifts

Confucius said, “Men’s natures are all alike; it is their habits that separate them.”  Accordingly, the gifts of courage and discipline can be developed if we simply choose to develop them.  Courage and discipline gives us a creative discipline to continue to explore, try new things, and experiment.  It allows us to stumble and yet get back up again and keep on going.

Courage and discipline is what allows us to turn our thoughts into action.  They help us to get things done, and be more effective.  People with courage and discipline are doers, not procrastinators or “gonna doers.”

Our own expectations are encouraged when we make a habit of courage and discipline.  These traits allow us to fulfill our expectations and keep us moving in a positive direction. Desire for achievement is fueled by courage and discipline.  Moreover, they create a belief in our self that allows us to accomplish more than we once ever thought possible.

Courage and discipline gives us inner identity.  This identity allows us to know who we are, what we are made of, and what we can truly accomplish.  The resulting inner peace comes from becoming all we are meant to be.  It allows us to have high energy and a love of life that permeates all of our pursuits and goals.

Perhaps Calvin Coolidge, the 30th President of the United States, sums up these twin gifts best when he said:

“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.  Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.  Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.  Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.  Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”

Persistence is the combination of courage and discipline that, as President Coolidge said, “. . . has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”

Working on the gifts,

David

Epic Days

Epic Days

“Thirty percent chance of rain,” the weather person explained.  “Great, “I excitedly declared to Cindy.  “That means there is a 70 percent chance of good weather for my long bike ride into the mountains!” or, that’s at least the way the day was planned.  Little did I know it would become an “Epic Day!”

An Epic Ride Profile

An Epic Ride Profile

Twenty minutes into the ride I started seeing wet roads.  A few minutes later there were sprinkles.  No problem, a little mist at 5:30 in the morning at the beginning of a 100 plus mile ride is no big deal.  An hour later I pulled under a little shelter of a ice cream stand as a deluge with zero visibility was upon me.  I texted back and forth with Cindy, checked the weather on my smart phone, the rain started to lighten, so I decided to proceed on.

The rain was constant.  Two hours later, again monsoon level rains hit and I, now in the middle of nowhere, pull off the road under a little lean to for shelter.

There were flash flood warnings in the hills.  Water was ponding and flowing like a river.  At points, the water on the road was up to the axles on my wheels.  It was the first time I had ever been cold riding a bicycle in July in North Carolina.

The good news was that I was getting ready for the ten mile climb up and over the Eastern Continental Divide – that would give me a chance to warm up!  This was my third time on this brutal climb in the last ten days.  To my pleasant surprise, probably due to the weather, there was almost no traffic the entire way up.  The rain felt good, the legs felt good, and I set a new record up this brutal road that I have done many times over the last decade or so.

We don’t always plan our Epic Days.  Sometimes they just happen, even if we don’t expect it.  Epic Days happen at work, with our families, and certainly during Ironman training.

Epic Days harden us and make us physically tougher.  Persevering through an Epic Day makes other days and pursuits comparatively easier.  At the conclusion of the day, we then know we are capable of much more than before the day began.

Epic Relief - the cool water of the New River

Epic Relief – the cool water of the New River

Epic Days can be used for positive personal psychology (PPP).  PPP is one of those special ingredients that separates winners froma life of mediodrity.  PPP gives us the little extra internal boost we need during the tough times in order to obtain any goal worthy of fulfillment and satisfaction.  There is only one way to acquire PPP and that is to keep going, even when it hurts.

So, the next time an Epic Day surprises you, embrace it.  It gives you a unique opportunity to expand and grow.  You’ll develop a little PPP that will serve you well in all future endeavors.

Make it an Epic Day,

David

Winning Formula

Winning Formula

If you want to be a winner, ask a proven winner how they do it. “So Coach, what’s the secret?”  Our team asked, “Tell us how you do it.”  We were looking for some great insight or secret formula to his astounding success.

Coach Atwood - Winning Formula

Coach Atwood – Winning Formula

At our weekly Friday morning Team meeting at Daggett Shuler we had Coach Maurice Atwood speak.  He is the head wrestling coach at Parkland High School and currently has more than 300 straight wins.  The last time they lost was in 2006!   This streak is the longest winning streak in North Carolina sports history, and is currently the longest streak by any sports team in the country.  He knows how to win!

Coach Atwood presented a very simple message.  You have to care and you have to work hard.  If you care and you work hard winning is the natural byproduct of your efforts.  He emphasized that hard work beats talent that doesn’t work hard. He smiled, and said that it really is not that complicated.  Keep it simple.

If you are not winning, you need to ask why not?  The answer usually is that you are not working hard enough.  He stressed that much of the hard work is repetition of the fundamentals that prepare us to perform with trained execution.  That takes commitment and takes what Coach called “integrity of expectations.”  Further, he instructed us to get rid of things that don’t work and do more of the things that do. Pretty simple!

Of course he warned us that the biggest trap or danger is complacency.  You are only as good as good as your next competition and you have to keep focus on the mission.  “On a team everyone has to be bought and sold on the mission as you are only as good as the weakest link.”

Lastly, Coach Atwood emphasized that it is tough to beat the character of commitment, integrity, and honor.  Win with modesty, and lose with respect. Thank you Coach Atwood for sharing your insight, experience, and wisdom with our Team.

Learning the Formula,

David
