Are You Olympic?

Are you Olympic? What do I mean by that statement? We have all seen the great footage coming out of Vancouver of the Winter Olympics. The athletes have given their all for their sport. They have sacrificed many things, for years, to get to this moment, their moment. They rise early in the morning for training and that's just for starters. In the evenings there's more practice. While they may be tired, they don't give up.

So what do I mean "are you Olympic"? What I mean is do you work hard at your goals? Do you sacrifice things you want now to reach your goal? College can be hard for many people. If you are thinking about quitting, I urge you to hang in there and keep fighting. Don't quit. Don't give up. Take your study time seriously. Get up early if you have, stay up late to understand that Accounting class. Just keep trying and you will receive your own personal gold. Work hard because you can do it!

Be Olympic!
