It’s hard to imagine that the 2010 Winter Olympics ended MONTHS AGO already! You might be wondering what’s been running through my mind… Just over 4 short years ago, we (the Canadian Speed Skating Team) were in our final days of training, counting the days before we headed out to Torino, Italy! The energy was like a POWER PLANT! UNLIMITED!!! True electricity in the air!!! After a lifetime of training and 3 previously missed Olympics, MY DREAM WAS FINALLY COMING TRUE!!! What an AMAZING experience!!!
And what really brings this to the forefront of my mind is something I experienced just recently… I was at a gym and got talking to someone who was working out. It came up that I was a speed skater and he asked for my last name. Turned out he worked for the first company that ever helped me out financially (at the time I was living off of about $800 per month)! Shortly thereafter, the company was bought out, their contact details changed and unfortunately we lost touch. I was never able to let them know just how much their support changed my life and truly made my Olympic medal a possibility! This really got me thinking…
Since I spend a lot of time in airports and hotels, I have plenty of opportunities to meet some really interesting and special people – including you! And I’ve been thinking about something that I’m really embarrassed about… Since winning an Olympic medal in 2006, I’ve met hundreds (probably thousands) of really great people – and that’s where it stopped. I have completely dropped the ball on staying in touch.
That is something I truly want to change – thus – my new theme – staying in touch and building fantastic life-long relationships!! Now many of you know that I focus a lot of my energies towards helping others – through health, and also by telling my story of NEVER GIVING UP! That’s why I want to start sharing the principles I learned over the years that provided the opportunities for me to win my Olympic medal, to be healthier and to feel better than I did 15 years ago, and to help people create balance and success in their lives! Yes!!
So – stay tuned, be sure to sign up for my Newsletter and watch for my next email where I’ll be sharing with you some of the most exciting news of my life! This is something that couldn’t be more life changing!
All the best in happiness, health & wealth,
