CNN Fit Nation: 2013 Triathlon Challenge
Fit Nation Video
As you will see I am sitting in front of a map of the WORLD. This is not a world I will conquer, I won’t change this world but I am PART of this world & I want to be the best ME there is in this world. I am not an athlete, I am not famous, I don’t sing, dance or play a musical instrument……there are a lot of things that I am not……..BUT I AM ME…..I am Michelle, the only ME there is in this world & I don’t feel I’ve lived up to my potential in this world.
Many of the Fit Nation videos are tough to listen too because your heart hurts for those people. We are all human & don’t like to see others sad, lonely, in pain but life is life & we ALL struggle to get thru each day with our sanity intact. We only get out of life what WE put into it & I WANT to put more into MY life. Only I can change my life & I WANT to change my life, I am READY to change my life. I want to get out of my comfort Zone & I Want to STOP listening to my quit voice! What better way to get out of my comfort zone & to get that quit voice out of my head than being part of a great opportunity such as the Fit Nation Triathlon team?!
I know this opportunity will challenge me physically, mentally & emotionally but it will also challenge me to be more open & engaging so that I can meet new people & forge new friendships. I will help me to develop better discipline within my life, something I have always struggled with. I’ve never done a triathlon nor did I ever think I would want to do one, but something about this opportunity has just stuck with me & I know in my gut that I NEED to do this FOR ME.
I won’t be the best swimmer, runner or biker – but I can promise I will give it my all & I will represent CNN & Atlanta to the best of my ability & I will be a full participant as a member of this team by encouraging & being there for my teammates. This is an opportunity for me to transform myself, to build my self-esteem, develop discipline & to be a part of others life transformations. What a great opportunity to be actively involved with others as they transform & change their lives as well….this is an amazing opportunity & I want to be a part of it!
Choose me because you have confidence that I can do this not only for me but because you have confidence that I would be a great asset to the Fit Nation TEAM!
