The excitement of this year’s Olympic games is exhilerating. The commentaries are so good you feel as though you’re there and it’s fantastic that Britain has some amazing athletes winning medals that they really deserve. No one can doubt that all the contestants go through a massive training programme to get these medals – and it’s a great motivator to take on board if you run a business.
Olympic athletes can help business owners focus on their goals. Sally Gunnell, a major track title holder now runs a successful business in Corporate Health and Well Being. She acknowledges that rising above the competition is tough for businesses – especially for entrepreneurs. Competition is healthy – it’s what makes us tick and achieve better results, providing we don’t become swamped with unnecessary detail that can deter us from achieving our goals. Sally Gunnell recommends
- Visualise your Goal and the Steps to Achieve it
