Who I am…
“Woah, but Cliff is an Ironman” – a co-worker during a casual talk by the water cooler.
It happened earlier the week. At work, I don’t talk about my training and triathlon. In fact, I would rather describe myself as a triathlete. [Triathlete are not as crazy as Ironmans 😛]
I was a bit surprised at my co-worker remembered that I did an Ironman last year. What more surprising is that I don’t think I told this co-worker I did an Ironman. Which means, someone from the office talked to him about it.
I work in the marketing field. My job is to go out and promote the benefits of a good or service. This often comes through branding. Unconsciously I am slowly branding myself by my lifestyle, the way I act and my actions.
People define us by our actions. This can be either positive or negative. And some (kids) will look at us as role models. And as I seen, there are role models that are bad influence. It is up to us, ME, to set a good role model. Be active, stay healthy and have fun.
This didn’t mean to be a rant. It is just some thoughts I had tonight. Have a good day.
