I have really enjoyed watching the Rio Olympics. So much drama, so much happiness, so much teamwork, so much patriotism and for the US Olympic team so much GOLD. 28 as I right this post. One thing that I have learned from watching all of the athletes is how focused they are. These athletes didn’t just wake up last week or last month and decide that they were going to compete in the Olympics, they have put in years of hard work and dedication.
Here is the lesson that I am taking away from these games.
Stay focused on YOUR game.
If I want to accomplish my goals I have to stay focused on ME. I can’t worry about what the other person is doing. When I start worrying about them that’s when I start losing focus. I’m only slowing down my progress. That’s wasted energy.
You have to plan your work and work your plan.
Sometimes we get so competitive that we spend all our time trying to figure out what the other person is doing so that we can get a leg up. But what we are missing is that the other person is focused on their own goals and moving forward. They aren’t wasting their time or talent on you and your actions. So now who is moving forward and who is standing still?
Stop looking back!
Go for YOUR gold!
