If you didn’t see it, yesterday at the Olympics Australian Modern Pentathlon competitor, Chloe Esposito, came from 7th place to win GOLD in Rio.
I have watched the footage several times and I can’t help but have a tear every time!
I have also listened to several interviews and have loved the gold nuggets (pardon the pun) that have come through about pursuing your dream.
It’s been a hard 4 years Chloe said in one interview.
***In the pursuit of your dreams and goals it isn’t always easy and smooth sailing.
I have not heard one athlete say the road to the Olympics was easy!
She almost retired for a “normal life”.
***You will most likely want to give up. Keep going!
“A lot of people think we are crazy the way we train”
***When you choose a different path people will often think you are crazy. Make the choices and take the action you need and want to make anyway!
And in another interview Chloe said that in past events she hoped to get into the top 10 or top 4 but it was at this Olympics that she first truly thought “I can do this”
***Believe in you and believe in your dreams.
Chloe’s acknowledgement and gratitude of her family and team was beautiful and humbling.
***Nothing great is ever achieved on your own. Surround yourself with an awesome team. Your win is also their win.
Congratulations Chloe. Absolutely amazing!
