What does #allergictoaverage mean?
We’ve caught some flak from this hashtag and because some people are put off with it because I think fundamentally, they think that it’s a comparison to others and we’re against comparing ourselves to other people, because it’s simply not a great thing to put people on that pedestal and always thinking you’re falling short.
I don’t see playing at average helps anyone in life. To us, it’s more about being a better you, because then that transfers across to being able to help other people out.
You just can’t reach your goals if you play at average. You can’t inspire other people playing at average and as the late Zig Ziglar said, “Building a better you is the first step to building a better world.” And I fundamentally believe that.
#allergictoaverage is much deeper than most people realize.
It’s about commitment, it’s about commitment to yourself, commitment to going all in on life and being the best person that you can be and being the best you can be in Triathlon, being the best you can be in life, at your job, in your family life, everything.
It’s a bloody tough task and we’re going to fail and we’re going fail over and over because it’s a really hard, you know, it’s a hard place to get to but I think that’s just part of a meaningful life journey. When we fall over and we fall short of that ideal of you know, being allergic to average, we get lessons from them and it’s those lessons that really build the richness of life and we all know life is short so play accordingly.
So go ahead, read and listen with an open mind- I wouldn’t be here today without that open and will to learn attitude.
If learning unconventional innovative ways to make great progress is not something you want to do then this might not be the place for you. That’s cool. We’ll keep on performing without you.
So welcome to TriSpecific.
