Today as I type this is the last day of the Paralympics 2012 in London following on from the Olympic Games London 2012. It has been great to watch although I could not get tickets to see anything live. Still a real boost for the nation!!!
Also, it has been fantastic to watch people achieve great goals. Whether it is a personal best (or PB as the saying is), a medal, a Gold Medal, a World Record or just getting to the Olympics in the first place. Everyone’s a winner.
And some of the stories that have come out have been absolutely fascinating. Overcoming fears and adversities to get where they want to go. Achievers in life.
And you? Are you achieving in your working life? Are you making excuses? Are you setting goals that are too easy? Do you abandon goals when the going gets tough?
These Olympic achievers didn’t. They got back on track and put in more effort. They overcame their demons. They overcame adversity and won.
What can you do to become an achiever. This Nike advert is right, you really do have everything inside already. You just need to take renewed or new actions to achieve.
Keep learning, keep trying, keep asking questions, develop great habits and you too can achieve.
When someone asks the question who is the Usain Bolt in this office? You can put your hand up and proudly shout “Me!!!”
You have all the tools you need, you have all the attributes in your grasp. You just have to find the way to bring everything together.
Usain Bolt are you in there???
