Facing tectonic shifts in emotion and fate, athletes competing in the Olympics experience extreme highs and lows as they dig deep at the pinnacle of sports. Minuscule mistakes divide the pack between those who achieve the podium and disappointment.
Yet, win loose or draw, these athletes inspire the rest of us. We draw strength watching what is possible with commitment. Living vicariously, we reconnect with that which is strong within us and has galvanized us to actualize our own potential. Athletes on the podium remind us that we too can raise the bar.
