The Olympian Spirit - An August ActiveRain Challenge

Services for Real Estate Pros with ActiveRain

OlympianWith the Summer Olympics launching in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil the world will be watching the athletes and learning about their sacrifices and journeys to get to the Big Games. Being an excelling athlete is so much more than physical prowess and accomplishments, it is about having the whole body focused on the goal to win.


Olympians visualize and see themselves as winners. They are inspirations. Do you have a coach or mentor that guides you, supports you? Are you disciplined like the best athletes or do your need some improving? Who are you inspiring and who is watching and modeling themselves after you?


Write a post sharing your Olympian secrets and why you see yourself as a winner or having a winning spirit. If you have some techniques that really keep you going and focused on your personal and business goals share them with us. You may inspire others in the Rain simply by sharing a few of your thoughts. Here are a few questions to get your creative juices flowing.

  • Who do you think of when you think winner?
  • Do you think of yourself as a winner in your field?
  • What traits do you share with the Olympians?
  • What makes you different and helps you excel?
  • Do you do daily routines that make your business grow and expand?
  • What practices do you use to stay on track and focused on your goals?
  • When you get discouraged what do you do to get back up and push forward?

Make your post around 500 words but no worries, we will not be counting. The contest ends at the conclusion of the Summer Olympics at midnight, Pacific Time on August 21. Include a photo you have taken of something that inspires you. Post a link to your contest entry in the comment thread on this post so others can see your post. For your efforts you will win Gold, 1000 Golden Points to your profile. Have fun, get to writing and sharing and think like an Olympian.

Some contests make me yawn or I can whip out in 30 minutes. This one had me thinking all month; honestly, it helped me enjoy the Games more.  One of the better contests, thank you.

The Olympics were interesting this year. It seems that there are more professionals than there used to be, but it is still interesting to watch the different specialists compete and it's fun to cheer on the participants.

Well I'm very glad I wrote my  Olmpian Post!  I gained so much from sharing my thoughts far more than worrying about  missed points!
