    Answer to our Teaser for today. The great lesson I want us to learn from this teaser is about goal setting – Aim higher than your can possibly imagine yourself achieving. Research has proved that this is how great Olympic athletes achieve success. This is the way it works – large and lofty goals are naturally very hard to accomplish; so for average people, they are rarely realized. On the other hand, easy goals are often easy to accomplish that it rarely stretches the achiever; leaving the achiever with a feeling of not having really attained.

    So, how does this dove-tail into our teaser? You see the person who wins gold is usually within the bracket of top three (3) athletes in any discipline; while the next six (6) athletes belong to the less endowed group. So, for the gold medallist her joy is that achieving the goal is a confirmation of expertise, while the silver medallist goes away feeling less than par. But for the bronze medallist, he is primus inter pares of his own group too!

    Moral? Aim high, become better at what you do. Go on succeeding. We love you!
