This episode is with me, Pete Jacobs Ironman World Champion, and I am giving insight into my routine of mindset practice, and how to control ego, so you can achieve your best, just like it worked for me.
Hawaii Ironman Triathlon is a tough race for anyone, but training for it is even tougher, especially when you know you have fatigue issues and can easily over-train. My experience with fatigue was actually what helped me learn about ego, and therefore helped my win in Kona, Hawaii.
My three key points for how to control ego are;
A quiet present mind cancels out your ego. You can’t have fears, doubts, worry, anger, etc. if your mind is in the present moment. Use a trigger word, a thought of gratitude, or just a blank quiet mind to control ego. Ego exclusively exists in thoughts of past or future.
2. Turn Your Weakness into Your Strength
I embraced the fact that I could not train as much as my competitors, and by accepting my weakness I could follow my instincts, and become the best I could be.
3. Do three things each day that are working towards your goal.
Monday was always my rest day, but I made sure I focused on three things that day that would help my mind and body be in better shape on race day.
