Today I am attending the Chick-Fil-A Leadercast along with the entire Rocket Company team. The following series of posts will be the leadership learnings from the day. The third speaker was Olympic Gold Medalist Sanya Richard-Ross.
The following are her thoughts:
- Not too much goes through my mind in that moment. When I’m in the race I’m thinking about executing every moment.
- It takes more than mouth ulcers and skin lesions to take my mind of my focus.
- The bronze did not feel like a victory…I had one day to pull it back together for my team.
- I had recovered physically but not mentally after being away for a year.
- I’m not going to give in to my fears or past memories.
- My mom and dad travel all over the world with me. I have amazing support.
- We both really appreciate and respect each other. – regarding husband Aaron Ross of the New York Giants
- Since I was a young girl I always set lofty goals for myself. And there will always be a lot of noise in the market. A lot of voices in your head trying to take away your focus.
- I make a Vision Board every year.
- Along the way I met many athletes I was not as talented as but they never had that love and support. – regarding her parents
- I eat clean throughout the week and cheat on Saturday or Sunday.
