To achieve goals have a mind of an Olympian.
The Opening Ceremony of the 2012 London Olympic Games is tonight, starting several weeks of competition between the best athletes in the world.
All these athletes have three attributes in common that resulted in their selection to represent their nations: passion; discipline; hard work.
Passion provides the motivation and focus to achieve any goal. Passion is the fuel that keeps you going through obstacles, hardship and reversal. Without passion, you will be unable to last long in any endeavour.
Discipline is the ability to keep your mind on the goal; you give attention to the goal and ignore all distractions.
There is no magic pills to achieving goals, you have to put in the work to achieve any goal.
If you have the opportunity to watch any of this Olympic Games, be inspired that like those athletes you can also achieve great things by adopting passion, discipline and hard work in achieving your goals in life.
