Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker
“During the 2004 Olympic Games, Perdita Felicien, a Canadian and the reigning world champion in the hundred meter hurdles, was heavily favored to win the gold medal. In the final race, she hit the first hurdle and fell hard. She wasn't able to complete the race. Extremely upset, she had tears in her eyes as she lay there in bewilderment. She had prepared for this moment six hours a day, every day of the week, for the past four years. The next morning, I saw her news conference. I wish I had taped it. I was amazing to listen to her perspective. She said something to the effect of “I don't know why it happened but it did, and I'm going to use it. I'm going to focus even more and work even harder for the next four years. Who knows what my path would have been had I won? Maybe it would have dulled my desire. I don't know, but I do know that I'm now hungrier than ever. I'll be back even stronger. As I heard her speak, all I could say was “Wow!” You can learn a lot listening to champions.
