I am sure you have heard of Kristen Otto, the Swimmer, the first woman who won six Gold Medals at an Olympics. She was born in Germany in 1966. She won the medals at the Seoul Olympics in 1988. To participate in an Olympics is in itself a great achievement. But to win a gold in each of the events you participate in is something that is unthinkable, especially in a world that is highly competitive. But Kristen Otto Managed it.
Otto says, “I used to swim 8 hours a day as a school student, 10 hours a day as a college girl, 14 hours a day before any competition. I lived in water. I knew I had the stuff right inside of me. I only had to persist, work hard and persevere.’
Energy and persistence conquer all things. If Columbus had turned back, no one would have blamed him; but, at the same time, no one would have remembered him. Remember: ‘It’s the daily grind which gives you the edge.’
