Habit for Success?

“I listen to my intuition, not to what other people think I should do.”

Pivot Moment?

Selene had been told by her colleagues time and time again that she should race bikes. “I just had a tough time believing that I was fast,” she said. But then she took them up on it and found that they were right! Now she’s a professional cyclist riding for Rare Disease Cycling and is an All-American Ironman Triathlete.
