Once again, NIKE has hit the nail on the head. As you guys know, I absolutely love the Summer Olympics. Thus, watching the games on TV this past week has been absolute inspirational paradise! The idea that someone trains for 4 whole years to master 1 moment is simply amazing. It’s like Eminem said, “You only get one shot.” Truth is that the experience of training, performing and being great isn’t only for Olympic athletes – it for ALL OF US! The raw endurance and perseverance that Olympic athletes exhibit very much parallels how we can handle challenges in our daily lives. Each day we have the opportunity to find our greatness. The opportunity to push ourselves. To shock ourselves and do something we never thought we were capable of doing. To set higher goals. To explore our true passions. To recognize and appreciate our talents and gifts. To perfect our skills. To strengthen our mental grit. And ultimately, to be GREAT.
I recently saw this NIKE commercial during Olympic games the that so perfectly conveys this message. Please take a minute, watch and ask yourself, “What is my greatness?” GET IT. GRIT. GREATNESS.
