GO For The Gold!🏅

Several years ago I was blessed to hear Olympic Gold Medalist and World Record holder in men’s downhill skiing (at 97 m.p.h.), Cary Mullen, share his story. One of the most impacting points he made was when he told the story of the famous ski slopes in Austria. The slope was so incredibly steep, as he put his skis over the edge of the gate, he could not see the hill…AT ALL. He shared of the fear that was to be OVERCOME by every skier on that hill. A few of his team mates broke limbs on that jump, but one teammate backed out, forfeiting his opportunity for Olympic Gold. Years later, when the men reunited as a team, the one team member who quit shared his regret. His words, etched deeply into the hearts of the others…’the men who jumped and fell, their broken bones healed, but regret lasts a lifetime’.

“Failure is not to be feared, we cannot win if we are afraid to lose. It takes REAL COURAGE to try something when the odds are against you succeeding, and failure is less traumatic than regret.”

-Graham Cooke

Live a life without regret, leave a Legacy. -Nicole
