The first face, you show to the world. The second face, you show to your close friends, and your family.
The third face, you never show anyone. It is the truest reflection of who you are.
Life lesson: celebrate when you’re done, not when you can see the finish line. Figurative and literal. A lot of us get close to our goals, then we start to relax and slow down because just seeing the light at the end of the tunnel feels certain enough. But if we stop pushing, we may not get there. When you see that finish line, that light, that goal, it’s time to push your very hardest. Rest and basking in victory will come after.
Life lesson: This is ironman. Celebrate whenever you want.
