Let me suggest you tweet this:
The Olympic motto is made up of three Latin words: "Citius, Altius, Fortius", which means "Faster, Higher, Stronger". These three words encourage the athlete to give his or her best during competition, and to view this effort as a victory in itself.
The sense of the motto is that being first is not necessarily a priority, but that giving one's best and striving for personal excellence is a worthwhile goal. It can apply equally to athletes and to each one of us.
Here are a few things to learn from the Olympians --
- Be dedicated and passionate
- Keep your goals in mind
- Learn to be a team player
- Cheaters never prosper
- It's not done till it's done
- Milk it while you can
- Have a backup plan
- Have goals after your career is over
