I have seen this one thing in the most successful athletes I’ve personally coached or interviewed. It’s something that is universal in people who go the distance in their sport. I’ll tell you about that in a moment, but all of this got me thinking…why do they make it to the Olympics? Why do they make it to their dream school for college?
