Go For the Gold - ActiveRain Olympic Contest


The Excitement is high for the Opening Ceremonies of the London 2012 Olympics! 

While I was Reaching your goals with the ActiveRain Olympic Contestlistening to several Olympian athletes talk about what it took to get where they're at today, I was deeply inspired by their dedication, hard work, focus and passion for their sport.

It got me thinking about where I'm at right now today with my real estate business, where I said I wanted to be at this point and where I want to be by the years end.  I've got some serious work to do that is going to take extraordinary focus, hard work, team support and passion. I'm ready to take on a couple of huge projects that will bring me to me year ends goal that I clearly see in my mind.


Here's what I've been hearing every Olympic Athlete say as to what it takes to get to where they're at today - the London 2012 Olympics


  • Years and years and years of hard work
  • Pushing even harder even when they're exhausted
  • Believing and Seeing their end goal
  • Absolutely 100% Focus on their goal
  • Being passionate and loving their sport
  • Having team spirit of co-operation and spirit
  • Fierce Competition while remaining best friends
  • Pressure beyond pressure and then some
  • Cheering Supporters telling them Go For It, You Can Do It!

Are your ready to take a serious look at the goals you set for 2012 and be honest with yourself as to what the real truth is?  And if you've accomplished everything in a big way so far are you ready to KICK it to a higher level than ever before?  This ActiveRain Olympic Contest is for those who want to STRETCH their minds, goals, hearts and put their all into the contest and their goals for their business.  It's not a contest for wimpy goals or stuff you've already accomplished!

A good way re-boot what you are doing or not doing. Five months to finish out the year better than you started.
