It was really awesome to be able to speak to ~40 freshman about setting goals and defining the "win" for themselves. I wanted to share with them some of the struggles I have faced while training for the 5k we will run in April.
There were 4 principles I left them with:
- Don't compare your race to someone else's - God made you for a specific purpose
- You might have to run the race alone - Sometimes you have to say no when everyone else is saying yes
- Sometimes it's not fun - You have to sacrifice to accomplish anything significant
- Set your goal and stay focused - setting smaller goals may help build your confidence and stay focused on the way to the "big win"
