It’s what you do in the dark that will put you into the spotlight

Michael Phelps is the GOAT of swimming… His records are legendary.

The video below is a must-watch to understand what it takes to be a true champion.

If you are not “winning” in your personal, professional or athletic life, you might want to ask yourself a few questions:

  • Do you have a goal or dream you really, really want to accomplish?
  • Why don’t you get up every morning with the same level of dedication as Michael?
  • Do you know what you need to do to achieve your next level of performance?
  • When you hold yourself back, do you hear yourself? What do you say to yourself?
  • Do you need constant motivation and encouragement? Why?

Want to get into the spotlight? Here are a few things to consider:

  • Who can help you? We all need coaches and mentors.
  • What do you need to get started? Just making a list will help overcome inertia and build some momentum.
  • Who can help you? A training buddy can be helpful – more than one is better, so that you don’t relay just on him/her!
  • What do you need to learn to improve?
  • What skills do you need to acquire?
  • What can you read to save you time, money and effort?
  • Who can you MIRROR in your chosen activity/sport?
  • What can you do TODAY to get going and growing?

The difference between champions and non-champions is not WHO THEY ARE, BUT WHAT THEY DO.

Only 35% of athletic success is genetic (physical attributes)… So you can’t (usually) use that as an excuse!

The real question is – why would you NOT want to be a champion in your life/business/career/sport?

Arnold Schwarzenegger 2018 – The speech that broke the Internet – You can’t NOT be inspired after watching this!

I don’t care what some might think of him as a person with his personal relationship challenges, I leave that for others to debate.

His work ethic is legendary.

What’s amazing is how FEW people know his total commitment to doing WHATEVER IT TAKES to achieve his outcome(s)…

And he has done it SEVERAL TIMES in multiple, TOTALLY different industries, each requiring TOTALLY DIFFERENT SKILLS.

I have tracked his progress from his early days as a bodybuilder… and every step of the journey – the message is simple – WORK HARD, but in today’s nanny state filled with snowflakes, it’s as if he’s speaking of a bygone era…

It’s not a bygone era – NOTHING with respect to HARD WORK has changed.

What HAS CHANGED is the nuber of people willing to WORK HARD has diminished, which means…

You guessed it – the REWARDS today are MUCH greater than they were in “his day”.

That is a discussion for another day, another time. For now, get INSPIRED and make 2019 Your Best Year Ever.

Set your goals, dreams, aspirations HIGHER.
