, which were held in Olympia, Greece, from the 8th century BC to the 4th century AD. Baron
(IOC) in 1894.
So here are the 5 Lessons learned from the Olympic Games that can be applied to your daily lives.
Remember, Success leaves Clues.
“Don’t put a limit on anything. The more you dream, the further you get,” swimmer Michael Phelps told the U.K.’s Daily Mail.
Michael Phelps is the Most decorated Olympian of all time! So take it from him, the only limit in life is you. I get it, it’s nurture, our environment, and the “standards” we’ve become accustomed to. So it’s hard for some to believe that there is more out there. But I promise you there is. All you need do is Dream more and ignore limits.
Too often do we settle for less when More becomes exceedingly unavailable. Believe in more.
2. Embrace Hard Work
“Hard days are the best because that’s when champions are made,” women’s gymnastics champ Gabby Douglas told NBC.
Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% Perspiration.
I won’t sugar coat it for ya, it takes massive action and hard, hard work to achieve true success.
But Today’s journey could become tomorrow’s Legend.
3. Cultivate the Team Culture
“Whether we had finished on top or not, the thing that I’m proud of is sticking together,” Olympic beach volleyball star Misty May-Treanor told CNN.
No one worth remembering has ever gotten anywhere on their own. It takes a team, it takes a tribe, it takes a mentor, it takes having someone to catch you when you fall. Someone to lift you up when to stumble. Be humble in remembering those that have helped you achieve your success.
I am truly grateful for a friend who has supported my author of being an author since day one. I cannot even begin to describe my gratitude for her friendship and encouragement.
4. Have Fun
What’s the point for working hard, taking massive action and dreaming big if you’re not having fun along the way? Failure is a big part anyone’s journey so it’s important to enjoy moments and have fun along the way.
5. This is YOUR Journey
“You were born to be a player. You were meant to be here. This moment is yours,” said coach Herb Brooks told the 1980 U.S.A. men’s ice hockey team.
Ahh coach quotes are some of my favorite. They really know how to rev up your soul.
This is your journey. No one, NO ONE can take that away from you. At the same time that means, this journey…it’s your responsibility, it’s your choices that define it. Everyone and I mean EVERYONE successful started off where you are right now, they weren’t born a winner, they weren’t instantly. brightly wealthy, no. So take that realization as incentive to kick out any doubts you may have and go out they to achieve your destiny.
Make it so they couldn’t ignore you even if they wanted to.
