After watching the 2012 Olympic games opening ceremony this morning, my mind has been consumed with thoughts of endurance, stamina and the power of the mind.
Being an Olympic athlete requires dedication, then again so does everything in life. What is the point in living a life that is lacking in dedication and commitment.
Athletes dedicate their lives to their chosen sport, they train their bodies, they push themselves to the limit. They are able to do this because they train their minds.
Failure is not an option. If you think you may fail, you will!
If you worry you will not succeed, you probably won’t!
If you believe with all your heart that you can achieve your goals then you should start living out your life, following your dreams and turning your desires into reality.
See that finish line in your mind, visualize your goals and dreams with such clarity that not achieving them simply refuses to be an option.
Live your life with a winning mentality; a mindset that refuses to accept defeat, a body that gets kicked down and jumps straight back up again, a heart that never stops chasing what it wants.
The people with the losing mentality see a roadblock before them and give up, they walk away immediately and do not even try.
The winning mentality people see a locked gate before them, they may sit there for a while, looking at this gate, but they will find a way through, against all the odds, they will jump that hurdle, remove that block and open the door that allows them to keep going in the direction of their dreams.
