Keys to Success

KeysI want to share an article from Splash Magazine. It is the Michael Phelps issue. I had the exciting opportunity to talk to his mom at the Olympic Trials in Omaha this summer. It was really cool because she was so genuine and kind amidst the chaos of Phelps Fans. Anyway, there is a list of 5 Keys to Success according to Michael. See if any of them speak to you.

  1. Everyone should have a passion, something at which they choose to excel.
  2. You can’t do what everyone else does and expect to be the best. If you want to be the best, you have to do things that other people aren’t willing to do.
  3. Overcome your mistakes, because everyone makes them.
  4. Your inspiration might be closer than you think. (Michael’s sister, Whitney, was first in the nation and third in the world when she was 14 and he was 9. He saw all the cool things she got to do as a result of her success and decided he wanted that, too.)
  5. Appreciate all the support you get, because it’s a privilege, not a right.

Pretty great advice from the greatest swimmer of all time.  Make it a great week. Remember you have the power to choose your attitude in any given situation.

Choose love.
