Jeff Heggie Daily Success Strategies
I have loved watching the Tokyo Olympic Games.
As much as I love to watch the athletes compete, I love watching their interviews, their preparation, and interaction with other athletes.
One thing that has stood out to me this year is the level of confidence that some of these athletes have.
One that I watched closely was American Swimmer, Lilly King. In her interview she talked about her high level of confidence and things she did to intimidate opponents. She has been very successful in her career and was the favorite to win the Gold again this year in the 100m breaststroke.
It was a shock to see her place third as her 17-year-old teammate from Anchorage AK took the gold.
As we watch these young athletes compete on the world stage, I’ve often wondered how they deal with the stress and anxiety.
On the podium for the women’s skateboarding stood three teenagers – 13, 13 and 16. It amazes me.
Simon Biles is another one that I have been watching. She’s in a league of her own. She is amazing and she knows it.
I recently posted a quote from her. She said, “I’m not the next Usain Bolt or Michael Phelps. I’m the first Simone Biles.”
I’ve been anxious to watch her at these Olympic Games.
On Tuesday she shocked the Olympic world when she pulled out of the U.S. team gymnastic finals. She said the emotional toll of the Tokyo Games, not physical injury, prompted her withdrawal.
I really like Tim Grover’s work and knew that he would post something about Simone. This is what he said on Instagram:
Winning sets unreasonable goals and requires you to bear the burden of responsibility for achieving them. That means doing anything and everything possible to get out of the situation you’re in, and into position to win.
You can pay the price of Winning and succeed, or you can quit, stay where you are, and pay the price of regret.
The road to paradise is a two-way street, and just as quickly as you travel to the top, you can slide right back down. In fact, you can pretty much count on it.
Winning doesn’t let you hang around. It meets you at the parade, cheers the loudest when you get the trophy, and then escorts you out to the parking lot, where the bus that brought you has a new sign with its next destination: Hell.
Winning will use every dirty trick in the book – and make up new ones just to entertain itself – to keep you in Hell.
It’s up to you to find your way out.
