Secrets to success

These supposed “secrets” come from Olympic gold medalists, though I’m not so sure about #6.

There are some spiritual principles here as well.

  1. Stay laser-focused on your goals, despite what your skeptics may say.
  2. Don’t back down from the competition — they will likely bring out the best in you.
  3. Never give up. When great obstacles arise, pick yourself up and get back in the game.
  4. Giving back goes a long way.
  5. Be nimble. When something isn’t working, change your strategy quickly and get back on track.
  6. Always be promoting and selling yourself.
  7. It’s never too late to realize your dreams.
  8. Never count out the underdog.
  9. Creating a unique, memorable identity will take you far.
  10. Assemble a top-notch team.
