Lessons from The Republic of Phelps

Piyush, the sale-u, said, "If Phelps was a nation participating separately in the Beijing Olympics, he would be ranked 7th or 8th in the list of medals!"

What made Phelps so dear to the world?
He came, he swam, he conquered.

He said he would come for the 8 medals and win, all gold. Then he did! What do we learn from this? Check these:
  • Dream big
  • Dream clear
  • Dream realistic
  • Work hard
  • Love your dream
  • Patience pays
  • Hard work pays
  • Have the passion, motivation, zeal to realize your dream
  • One motivated committed person is more than an army of losers
What do you think?

I think humility helps. When he went to the last Olympics, he also said he would win 8 medals, and he fell short of that goal. He was cocky and arrogant then, this time he was a lot more humble. I think humility often leads to working harder, and of course to not making assumptions. He didn't automatically assume he was going to win this time. This time he worked his hardest to get there, and deserved it.
