When interviewed on NBC’s Today Show after ending up with a silver medal when she could have won the gold, Olympic champion Allyson Felix gave this wonderful advice regarding setbacks. She said, “I hope that I just can get across that you’re going to have obstacles, there’s going to be adversity, but let your spirit shine through, keep fighting no matter how the cards are stacked against you, don’t let it keep you down”.
Indeed, that’s always our motto in this blog. It is not about the circumstances, setbacks or adversity. It is all about your attitude – the decision you make. Always choose to “let your spirit shine through”; consciously acknowledging that it is for you to make the choice.
