If you are watching the Olympics, then you have probably seen some great things happen every night.
The other night, Michael Phelps, without question the best swimmer and possibly the best Olympic athlete of all time, exacted a touch of revenge on a loss in the 200-m butterfly from 4 years ago in London. In that race, he was out touched at the wall by Chad le Clos from South Africa and it left a particularly bad taste in his mouth. The reason he wanted the revenge is not merely because he lost that race 4 years ago, but rather because he felt that he didn’t train well enough for the 2012 Olympics. As a result, he unretired, trained harder and better, and he came back this year ready to go to win more golds and specifically win the 200-m butterfly. The attached picture of Phelps and le Clos shows it all, and it reminds me of a quote that I read on Twitter one time:
Winners focus on winning. Losers focus on winners.
Be a winner today and every day!
