Gold Medal Moments

Have you watched Olympians obtain the gold medal then kiss it? That gesture is considered the epitome of winning. Every time I watch Olympic Athletes receive medals causes me to think about what it takes for them to reach that moment. Are you prepared for the Gold Medal Moments of your Life?

As the athletes practice before the event some times commentators make statements saying “she fell at practice today,” “he couldn’t complete the jump,” “he couldn’t cross the field in time, “she didn’t make the basket.”

Indeed, it is during the “practice” you would expect them to make mistakes! After all, it is “practice.”

Every body rallies around the athletes during the gold medal moment. Yet, they are typically alone or with the coach at the hours of practice to make the team, much less compete for the gold.

Becoming Olympians means they have what can be a full-time job. At minimum they practice 40 hours/week, 52 weeks/year, 2,080 hours/year……and for four years, 8,320 hours before they make the team…then more hours to qualify once on the team!

During the competition, the difference between the gold medalist and the silver or bronze may be one one/thousandth of a second!

They work hard and make it look easy!

How hard do you work in the Olympics of your life? You have gold medal moments every day. How many hours of practice do you put in to be an effective Manager? Parent? Leader? Communicator?

Whatever role you play deserves your best. It takes practice to be your best. Imagine practicing being an effective communicator for at least 8,320 hours…and then some…!

Each time you have a gold medal moment to lead your team, teach your children, run your business, or speak your truth, think of the Olympians and their determination, perseverance and tenacity. Inspire yourself to excellence in your gold medal moments…!
