Motivational Monday ~ The Olympics

23 Jul

We are a few days away from the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics in London. The television set if filled with inspirational ads. The AT&T commercial featuring Ryan Lochte struck me. He narrates the commercial as he dives into the ocean.

Luck doesn’t get you to the Olympic Games.

You can’t wish your way onto the podium.

You can’t buy it or hope for it.

It’s not enough to dream about it.

Luck didn’t get me to London.

I swam here.

How far are you willing to “swim” to reach your dreams? Are you willing to put in the time and the training it takes to actually achieving your goals? I am beyond impressed with Olympic athletes. They work hard for years for perhaps their one and only chance to win an Olympic medal. We usually have more than once chance to reach our dreams. What are you willing to do to make yours come true?

Happy Monday!
