“In pursuit of being the best in your field, having the mindset to deal with anything from set-backs to success is paramount. On my Goldmedal run in Beijing in 2008, it was my mind that won that medal, not my body.
See you have to believe in yourself, you have to believe even when people say you can’t do it. That desire has to be as intense as an inferno; people can throw cold water on it, but it won’t go out!
I loved it when someone would tell me i couldn’t or wouldn’t. Just put more fuel on the fire!!! Now i’m the one who gets to say: “told you i could do it!”
Belief… we’re nothing without it”
