Some of it is raw talent. But talent alone is not what divides Olympians from other athletes. You could make an argument for a lot of different factors – supportive families, strong coaching, hours of practice. All those things contribute to the making of an Olympic athlete. In this post, I want to talk about the factor that is arguably the most important of all – perseverance.
Whether or not an athlete continues in the face of fear and adversity can make or break their chances of accomplishing their dreams.
The same can be said of writers.
