Get Inspired by the Olympians

This Olympic Season, what sport will inspire you to new achievement?  Instead of just watching the great athletes, and saying, “I could never…… ,”  why not take inspiration from them? 

Pick a sport you love, and see what you can learn.    I love to swim, but I won’t ever be competing with Michael Phelps.  Yet I can take inspiration from his dedication to his sport over the last, long four years, and how even he sometimes had to take breaks and get his head back into his game.  I can also learn from his focus on getting the most out of every stroke and apply that even to my measly little side-stroking! 

How about you? What is your favorite sport?   Tennis?  Race-walking? The Marathon?  Horse jumping? 
Inspiration abounds.  Take some of that gold home for yourself!
