So many people along the way, whatever it is you aspire to do, will tell you it can’t be done. But it all it takes is imagination. You dream. You plan. You reach. There will be obstacles. There will doubters. There will be mistakes. But with hard work, with belief, with confidence and trust in yourself and those around you, there no limits.
If you put your mind to anything that you dream, you can achieve it.
Dream as big as you can dream, and anything is possible.
I see my goals as personal and I always have. That’s just been how I’ve worked.
I like to just think of myself as a normal person who just has a passion, has a goal and a dream and goes out and does it. And that’s really how I’ve always lived my life.
I was very fortunate at a young age to learn what goal setting is and how to take time and spend it the right way. I have a lot going on now, but I want my family to have everything I had growing up and more, and yeah, for me to do that there are times when I need to jump on a plane and travel around the world in a week. But also, it’s like, if I start getting burnt out, I know when I need to take a break. Your body tells you; just listen to what your heart is saying.
I knew I was not a failure in any way, and so did those close to me. It doesn’t matter if you fall short; it is never a failure to go after your goals with everything you’ve got.
Obviously for water safety, you want to learn just to be comfortable in the water; that’s the main goal. I think the second that you start freaking out and feeling uncomfortable, it’s not going to go well.
My goal is one Olympic gold medal. Not many people in this world can say, ‘I’m an Olympic gold medallist.’
It’s the Olympics. If you can’t get up to swim early in the morning, don’t go.
Nothing is impossible. With so many people saying it couldn’t be done, all it takes is an imagination.
