Siri is the 2001 ITU Triathlon World Champion. She also won the 2001 and 2002 ITU Triathlon World Cup series and 2001 ITU Aquathlon World Championships.
So she knows a thing or two about doing the impossible.
But she wasn’t always an athlete. She failed to get into the national lacrosse team. She was comically inept at swimming.
Very bad swim starts. Equipment failures at many key races. Intensely crushing workouts. And to top it all off, performance anxiety.
Despite all this, she went on to win the 2001 championships.
She tells us, “If you are committed with all of your being to the pursuit of your dream – to the unearthing of your true self and potential – you will be blinded by the brilliant light that emerges when you are cracked open.”
Siri had tremendous self-belief. And each day, she showed up to do her best.
Her ABSOLUTE BEST.
Trying to achieve the impossible every single day. To go beyond what she thought was possible.
When doubt crept in, she pushed harder and further.
She did the impossible every day.
To show up and try to do the impossible is what makes the impossible possible.
What have you been resisting because it feels impossible?
Take the first step towards it. When resistance steps in, acknowledge it. And then push forward.
If you don’t try, you don’t know. Try the impossible. And you may just achieve it.
