My take on current events
A Little Bit More
The world’s best athletes are in Beijing, China from all across the globe competing for Olympic Gold. They came from every walk of life and different cultures representing the best of the best in a variety of sports.If you’re like me, you experience a variety of feelings and emotions as you watch these athletes experience the thrill of victory as well as the agony of defeat. The Olympics stir our emotions and capture our hearts because deep inside we know these athletes have paid a tremendous price to earn the right to be Olympians.The truth is, Winning is not easy. To become a champion in the Olympics, life, or business, you’ve got to do everything your competition does and a little bit more.
The following are a few areas where we can do a little bit more. The first step toward improving your life is always the hardest. The key is to launch in the direction of your dreams and goals. Start by taking little steps and once you gain momentum you will be unstoppable.
