I believe an Ask, Listen, Learn Team member is someone who’s a champion, not necessarily because they’ve won a race or a competition, but because of how hard they work to prepare. For me, preparation is the big thing. If I leave no stone unturned, I have no regrets. That’s important for kids of all ages to realize. If you can finish a competition with no regrets, you can walk away with your head held high. Even if you don’t win, it doesn’t make your effort any less worthwhile. I truly believe anyone with that kind of positive attitude, focus and commitment to teamwork can become an Ask, Listen, Learn Team member.
I wouldn’t say nervous. More anxious than anything. That’s a natural, healthy feeling. If I’m too relaxed, then it doesn’t feel like a competition.
It’s so intense. The preparation involved is insane. And it’s so dynamic and fast. It’s got everything an American would want in a sport.
I enjoy living a healthy lifestyle. I’m full-bore into being as healthy as possible. I can have an awesome time with my friends without alcohol. Some people feel they need it to loosen up, but in reality, you just need time to be comfortable in your own skin.
