Team THINK STRONG - Veronika Patty
I am a triathlete! I am also a mom and a wife, a boss, a coach, a student, a friend and a motivator and in every aspect of my life I choose to THINK STRONG! I am committed to control my thought process and choose to think only the thoughts that are productive and that will strengthen my spirit. I am dedicated to energize, empower and support others despite any circumstances.

What motivates the ¬"motivator¬"?

To all of my friends, family members, coworkers and clients I am know as the motivator, the cheerleader, the one to give you a pat on the back after job well done, the one to challenge you to get out of your comfort zone and trust your abilities. This is something I have always done however just recently realized what importance this role plays in my own life.
We hear about success a lot, but I always struggled with defining the meaning of this word in my life journey. Everyone sees success differently, for some it is measured in money, for some in powerful carrier.
Well for me success means something little different.
I see my self successful when I can influence people¬'s thoughts and actions in such way that they grow as individuals, make better choices for themselves and find happiness in their lives. This definition of success applies to any aspect of my life. As a mother, a daughter, a wife, a friend, an athlete and a coach, knowing how much can encouraging words, a hug, a smile or a simple gesture like ¬"thumbs up¬" mean to people around me really opened my eyes to who I want to be.
So going back to being the motivator, I don¬'t think many of the people that allow me be part of their lives realize that by letting me support and encourage them they make me successful! Seeing people getting out of their comfort zone and going for it (whatever IT is) is the biggest motivation I will ever have. It doesn¬'t matter if you are training for Ironman or 5k race, if you are starting a new business or you are going back to school.
There is nothing better then hearing people say ¬"wow I didn¬'t know I could do that¬"! Well I did! ;o)
