My dad used to always say "There are no guarantees except death and taxes."
Growing up, that saying made no sense, but now it does. When world-class athletes set their sights on the Olympics, there are no guarantees they will make it... none the less win a gold medal.
I’ve had the opportunity to ask Olympic hopefuls and former Olympians what it was like the moment they decided to go for it. To go "all in."
All of them said essentially the same thing.
"It was like tunnel vision."
"I decided, and there was no turning back."
They had zero excuses on their quest to be the best. What about us on our quest to be our best?
Maybe you have reached a personal Olympics or maybe you have not. Before effectively moving forward, it’s time to gain an important perspective and peace on past inaction.
If you are like most people (me included), you have started and stopped something important to you. Something that you knew would complete you....
Feeling a bit out of control or worried? (You’re not alone:).
Learning how to master your mindset can help you to feel more grounded and less worried. You can learn to go from consuming and reacting to learning, doing and moving forward.
Let’s take a few minutes to see how you and/or your team or your family members are doing! This is not a scientific assessment, just a general starting guideline to shine some light on where it may be helpful to improve, so you can be more calm, productive and optimistic.
