Go For the Gold - ActiveRain Olympic Contest


The Excitement is high for the Opening Ceremonies of the London 2012 Olympics! 

While I was Reaching your goals with the ActiveRain Olympic Contestlistening to several Olympian athletes talk about what it took to get where they're at today, I was deeply inspired by their dedication, hard work, focus and passion for their sport.

It got me thinking about where I'm at right now today with my real estate business, where I said I wanted to be at this point and where I want to be by the years end.  I've got some serious work to do that is going to take extraordinary focus, hard work, team support and passion. I'm ready to take on a couple of huge projects that will bring me to me year ends goal that I clearly see in my mind.


Here's what I've been hearing every Olympic Athlete say as to what it takes to get to where they're at today - the London 2012 Olympics


  • Years and years and years of hard work
  • Pushing even harder even when they're exhausted
  • Believing and Seeing their end goal
  • Absolutely 100% Focus on their goal
  • Being passionate and loving their sport
  • Having team spirit of co-operation and spirit
  • Fierce Competition while remaining best friends
  • Pressure beyond pressure and then some
  • Cheering Supporters telling them Go For It, You Can Do It!



Are you ready to Go For The Gold?  Many of us have been in real estate for years and some of us are relative newbies to the 'sport'.  Where ever you're at right now, today, you've most likely worked hard for many years to accomplish your goals and aspirations. Are your ready to take a serious look at the goals you set for 2012 and be honest with yourself as to what the real truth is?  And if you've accomplished everything in a big way so far are you ready to KICK it to a higher level than ever before?  This ActiveRain Olympic Contest is for those who want to STRETCH their minds, goals, hearts and put their all into the contest and their goals for their business.  It's not a contest for wimpy goals or stuff you've already accomplished! Don't go there!  

 Let's raise the bar REALLY high on this  ActiveRain Olympic Contest! 

This is a contest for Gold Medal  ActiveRain Achievers!  I invite you to take a hard long look at what you really want and getting a plan in place to achieve it. It is a contest where you can reach out to other ActiveRainers for ideas, coaching, whatever is needed.
