Are you a champion according to Harvey?
by David Zinger
Harvey Mackay’s last newsletter focused on a short list of what goes into making an Olympic champion—or for that matter a gold-medal winning entrepreneur or manager.
Here is his list of 13 qualities:
- Mental Toughness.
- Life is not always fair.
- Don’t let age be a deterrent.
As someone who is approaching 54 in two weeks. I appreciated his comments on don’t let age be a deterrent:
Look at 41-year-old Dara Torres, who proved to be the second fastest woman swimmer in the world and lost by 1/100th of a second. Or how about Romania’s Constantina Tomescu-Dita, who at age 38 won the women’s marathon. And don’t forget John Dane III, who at age 58, made the U.S. Olympic sailing team for the first time after trying to qualify for 40 years.
