Do You Have the Olympic Spirit?

As we watch the Winter Olympics or any major sports event we see the great achievements of men and women from around the world. We marvel at their feats of physical accomplishment; their dexterity, their skills, their strength, etc.

They make it all look so easy, right? But was it always easy for them to do what they do? How much time and energy went into the preparation that brought them to this point in their lives where they can perform such amazing things? What drove them and what continues to drive them to achieve what they do?

Are You and Olympian?

These are things we might ask about the Olympic Athletes, but they are also things we can and should apply to ourselves in our Internet marketing endeavors. When someone sets out to become an Olympic Athlete, they set high goals for themselves and begin their journey to the Gold Medal. They weigh the cost and decide that the price if worth it. They set their plan and work every day to become better and better at their area of expertise. They eat and drink of it. They think about it every spare moment. They dream of the Gold Medal and work hard to obtain it. They focus on achieving that Medal and they will not let themselves quit.


They do all this for a little piece of gold on a cloth ribbon. We, on the other hand set our dreams on success in life, on financial freedom, on benefiting mankind in our area of expertise. Whatever your reason for being involved in Internet marketing, you need to be an Olympian at achieving it.

We have or should have goals in our business pursuits. We need to have a definite goal of what we want to achieve. We need to have a definite plan of how we are going to get there. We need to work every day at getting better and better at our area of expertise. We need to eat and drink of it every day. We need to dream about achieving it. We need to visualize ourselves achieving the goals we set for ourselves. We need to never quit.
