This time is a tough time for athletes, or anyone who has a dramatic life change. Your identity is wrapped up in your sport and going for that Olympic dream. What is the goal now? What is the dream now? It took me a very long time to reconcile my business life and my Olympian Life. 10 years of perspective and trying to figure it out has done a lot. I failed a lot along the way. Much like in sport, there are bumps and bruises and errors made but there is always something to learn.
My goal now is about embracing my Olympian spirit – becoming better every day. Incorporating that spirit into what I am doing now keeps that dream alive and passion flowing.
