How Winners Are Made

Christi Hegstad September 30th, 2013

CLARITY KICKSTART: September 30, 2013

“The athlete becomes great not when she breaks a world record and wins a medal. That’s when the world recognizes her, but in reality the event is just the evidence of her greatness. The athlete achieved greatness months, perhaps years, earlier when she decided to run the extra mile, swim the extra laps, or to perform just one jump more.”

~ Brian Moran

Coaching Tip For The Week:

This quote is SO true, and at times SO difficult to remember!

Winners aren’t made in one game any more than a plant suddenly grows from seed to flourishing with one spot of sunshine. We plant the seeds of success daily – with every call we make, every blog we post, every connection we form, every action we take in alignment with our vision.

This week, review your vision, mission, and goals. (If you don’t have them written, then reflect on them in mind and heart.) 

Commit to planting a seed – taking an action – every day this week that supports your overall vision. 

Don’t worry about whether you see results immediately. Just set your intention towards your growth and trust that your thoughtful actions are leading you exactly where you need to be.
