“But right now, I have no goals; I’m just like a bum.” Usain Bolt.
They came, they conquered or were conquered. They all achieved their goals, some will play again. Some will never compete at this level again. Some will go onto to train others by giving away what they have accomplished becoming coaches or leaving the sport of their passion entirely. However, all of them are winners in their own right.
Michael Phelps, is still the fastest man in water, and now to add to his list of accomplishments breaking the all-time Olympic Medal record. The old record was 18. The most medals were won on land by a gymnast, Larisa Latynina. Michael record was won in the water with 19 medals. Her record took 70 years to win. Michael’s record, who knows where or when it will be broken?
Phelps came and accomplished everything he and his Coach Bob Bowman set out to accomplish. His coach put him through many rigorous tasks. His coach readied him to be able to swim blind only being able to count his strokes in previous last Olympics. Who knew?
The fastest man in the world “All Day Everyday” Usain Bolt ran for 36.84 seconds for the 100 meters. What makes Usain Bolt so amazing? Well, he has all the physical skills possible to attain his goal. Actually the bigger question is what makes anyone of these athletes so amazing and powerful? Yes they have the drive. They’ve developed the skill, and they have the passion. There is one thing that they also have. They have coaches. Their win is also their coaches win. They have coaches that help them plan what’s next. The coach is in the background. Very rarely is the coach in the foreground. However, the drills that get done, the practice over and over again are planted and take root in the athlete mind, bodies and action are planted there by their coaches. The Coach, who each and every one of the players love and respect. Their coaches are the muscle behind the curtain.
A coach will go to any length to train you to be number on in your level of performance. A coach will stretch you in ways that you can never stretch yourself. Your coach is able to have you be all and more of what you want to be; always in the background, knowing your game, making sure that you know your game.
Usain Bolt has conquered all his current goals. He came to be a legend and he is now a legend. He say’s pertaining to what’s next for him “Right now nothing. I’ve done what I wanted to do. My coach and I will discuss what we need to do. But right now, I have no goals; I’m just like a bum.”
“I’ve done something that no one has done before, which is defending my double title,” Bolt said. “Back to back for me, I would say I’m the greatest.” So would say that kind of confidence is arrogant. I would say that is a person that knows what he came to do and did it despite the media comments. He fulfilled on the measure. Confidence is something that gives you a sense triumph. A Coach is someone that makes you triumphant.
What do all of these Athletes have in common? Yes, they have coaches and they take the coaching. The coach keeps them out of their head and in the game. Who keeps you out of your head and in your games in your life? When things are not working, or working the way you want them to do? What do you do? How do you win in the games that your create for your life? Do you quit at the slightest incongruence? Or do you just give up at the mere thought of what you think will take place? Who helps you build the weak muscle in areas of your life that you would like to transform?
