Many of our favourite Olympians of the past experienced disappointment through failure.
Examples are Murray Halberg and Hamish Carter. Both athletes expected to do well only to experience failure at the Olympic games.
At the elite level they operated in, four years can be a long wait for redemption; presuming of course they get selected again.
Four more years of training and competition and sacrifice, yet they did go on to become champions.
What excellent role models for persistance, burning desire, not giving in and going for that dream. The epitome of personal development.
Imagine applying that sme tenacity to your own life.
In a recent news clip another Olympic champion Danyon Loader spoke of developing self belief and overcoming hurdles. The everyday attrubutes you need to develop as part of your own self growth as you move toward becoming an Olympian in your own life.
Olympic rower Matthew Trott has experienced similar ups and downs. He has been to the well only to be dumped and and now he’s back for another shot at glory in London.
Sport reflects life.
Build that winning attitude.
