The Olympic Games in London started just yesterday! Millions of people are watching the Games right now, either on their TV at home or in London at the stadiums and arenas. There are 26 different sports, 205 countries/nations from all over the world, 302 events and most importantly 10,960 athletes. For some of these athletes their dream of getting Olympic Gold has come or will come true and most of them are just happy to have made it to the Olympics to represent their country. But how do these athletes do that? How do they make it to the Olympics? How do they win Gold?
The answer is actually pretty simple. Every athlete who made it to the Olympics has something in common. And guess what that is? It’s their mindset! They all have a positive mindset and a determination that got them through to the biggest sporting event in the world. Great athletes do different things that help them win their victory. They…
- believe in themselves and their ability to win
- love their sport and what they are doing
- are enthusiastic about their sport
- train hard and practise (mostly everyday)
- have courage
- focus (they always focus on their dream and goal)
- have a routine and discipline they follow
- concentrate on the process
- visualise their victory
Not only Olympic athletes do these things. People like you can apply these techniques/qualities to their sport or passion. If you have enough determination then I can guarantee you that you will succeed in everything you do!
Have fun watching the rest of the Olympics and cheering for your country and favourite athletes as they win their medals and fulfill their dreams. Maybe one day you will be there too… 🙂
