critical Olympic traits

Garth Rowan:

Here are 9 of the most critical Olympic traits that the rest of us could apply in a crisis:

1) Confidence

That elusive factor that everyone strives for but few can conjure up at will. The fallacy is thinking that someone else can give it to us. Far from it; not even the best coach can hand us that secret. It comes from within, it’s about getting the small things going well and building from there. …

2) A Support network

3) The road map

4) Stay in the “Now”

5) Self assessment

6) Mental toughness

7) Preparation routine

8) Purposeful practice

9) Grab the best behaviour
