Default Did the Olympics Inspire You Too?

I was just thinking about how inspiring the Olympics were this year. I have to admit, this was the first time I've really watched the Summer ones.

One thing I really got from watching the athletes this year is how much they trained prior to the contest. These athletes trained for YEARS. And stayed dedicated to their goals for years. I think we all as entrepreneurs should take note to do the same when it comes to building our businesses. Dedication, focus, and commitment no matter how hard it gets will always move us towards getting the gold :0)

We watched alot of the Olympics this summer - I was hooked! Just knowing that some of these athletes have been working non-stop for YEARS convinced me that success isn't something that happens overnight. It takes work and consistency.

Exactly! I was completely inspired and charged up again after listening to some of the athletes stories. Winners don't have the "easy" road. They have the road less traveled but has success at the end :0)
