With the closing of the Olympic games in Rio we wait in anticipation for Tokyo to open it’s doors. The Games represent so much of what we experience in life generally – to hope of achieving great success. Many athletes are going home with a medal to prove that they are the winners of a race/event, and many more are going home empty handed. But what matters now is the attitude of both medal-bearers and empty-handed… how to handle the aftermath? Do I give up? Or do I continue training for the next success?
