All of us have our dreams, goals, and ambitions. But these seldom come to any fruition because many of us are afraid of ever living on the edge. We find comfort in the safe, quiet lap of mediocrity instead of finding our peace in the eye of the storm, giving it our all and hoping that our dreams do come true.'

Like any other life goal, if becoming a professional athlete is your dream, then there will certainly be days when you feel like giving up. There will be many moments where you will feel like you’ve run out of steam, and be tempted to settle for less than your best. It’s just so much simpler to take the easy way out.

Don’t Settle, Go For Your Goals: It’ll be Worth It!

Athletes are gifted and talented people. It takes immense discipline to excel at a sport. However, going after a gold medal can take a lot from you. Perhaps, that is why very few athletes are able to reach the pinnacle of strength and fortitude that Olympic athletes do.

It is important that you aren’t too hard on yourself. Regardless of your age, race, gender or occupation, you’ll have your own story to write, as long as you choose to write it. So take a breath, commit, take that first step, and step out of your comfort zone.

You’re too strong to give up. You’re too powerful to be mediocre. You’re too brave to be afraid. Choose hope and hard work. Commit to your own success. Focus on the bigger picture.
