I always enjoy the Olympic games, but watching the athletes perform this year has truly been inspirational. The standard of excellence that these young men and women continue to acheive is exceptional.
I've always been a huge sports fan, and in a day and age where many athletes are almost solely motivated by the scale of their oversized paycheck, it's so refreshing to see athletic competition motivated by the love of country and the love of sport.
What is especially impressive to me is the work ethic and dedication these athletes have to their sport and their craft. For three years and eleven months between the games, it's requires a tireless focus to qualify for the opportunity to compete on the Olympic stage, with little to no media attention.
Much moreso than the pursuit of wealth - it's the pursuit of excellence. The tangible monetary rewards received by such pursuits may be less than those acheived in the big money sports, but the ultimate reward of leading a life grounded in the pursuit of excellence is indeed a life enriched.
For anyone who aspires to reach the top of their profession in real estate - draw strength and inspiration from what you see from these athletes during this fortnight. It's a special opportunity to witness excellence first hand and consider how to deploy those same pursuits into how you approach life and your profession every day.
