WEEK 5 – JULY 2008
I have been discussing lots of details this past week with a few athletes preparing for the upcoming Games. With only weeks to go, it is all the little, final detailed preparation plans which will make a big difference. Do you pay attention to detail to ensure you succeed?
Success in any endeavour requires single-minded attention to detail and total concentration.
A man’s accomplishments in life are the cumulative effect of his attention to detail.
John Foster Dulles
Excellence: Going far beyond the call of duty, doing more than others expect……this is what excellence is all about. And it comes from striving, maintaining the highest standards, looking after the smallest detail, and going the extra mile. Excellence means doing your best. In everything. In everyway.
Visualise! Make pictures in your mind. See the destination. Imagine your arrival. Dream in perfect detail. See yourself the way you want to be when you arrive. See yourself arriving. Make yourself a road map and study it everyday until you know the way and the destination by heart.
Challenge yourself to another level. Do more detail than you have ever done before in whatever you are working on and simply see the great rewards.
Wishing you the success you dream of in detail!
