"Believe you can and you're halfway there." Theodore Roosevelt

In this week’s edition of The Weekly Wrap let's find out how to be committed to be your best and have faith in yourself. Leah O’Brien is a 3 time Olympic gold medalist, a wonderful wife, mother of three, TV host, speaker, teacher and trainer. Her faith is the foundation that creates balance in her life, and that is where true success and happiness comes from. But how did Leah achieve this success?

sample-imageLeah understood the Napoleon Hill success formula. She took the four simple yet necessary steps that gave her the stickability to achieve the goal of becoming an Olympic gold medalist:

  1. A definite purpose backed by a burning desire for its fulfilment. LEAH WAS crystal clear on her purpose. Her goal was not just to participate in the Olympics. She was determined to be an Olympic gold medalist.

  2. A definite plan, expressed by continuous action. LEAH HAD a training schedule and she executed it diligently. The work she did every single day built her confidence. Every time she stepped on the field she worked on her weaknesses to become better, while at the same time fortifying her strengths.

  3. A mind closed tightly against all negative and discouraging influences, including negative suggestions of relatives, friends, and acquaintances. LEAH DIDN’T allow negative people around her. She did not accept any negativity, not even from her own teammates. You have to protect your mind and how you are responding to your thoughts, because the words that you speak on the inside will eventually manifest on the outside.

  4. A friendly alliance with one person (or more) that will encourage one to follow through with both plan and purpose. LEAH HAD a great support team built around her—her parents, the senior softball players in college, her Olympic teammates, and others who believed in her and pulled her through the difficult times.

How can you now find a way to break through and achieve your personal greatness?

  1. Pass on the pass. UNDERSTAND and accept that success often lies behind a thick wall of rejection. Don’t let that stop you. When you know you are on to something special, you have to stand your ground.

  2. Apply Napoleon Hill’s four steps to develop stickability. HAVE a definite purpose, take continuous action on your plan, close your mind tightly against all negativity, and surround yourself with supportive people.

  3. Fake it till you make it! SEE YOURSELF already as the best person you can be. Create pictures in your imagination of what you want to achieve. Visualise your goal to every last detail and you will be able to clearly define your deciding moments.

Remember: To be a great champion you must believe you are the best. If you're not, pretend you are. — Muhammad Ali
