I have been sharing my story a lot lately about my journey to Olympic Gold. 🥇I talk about setting goals and attitude and work ethic. But I think there is also another factor that makes all the difference in the world.
That is BELIEF. And a WHY NOT ME attitude. 💪🏼

If you believe that you are capable of being the very best and willing to make sacrifices and do what it takes to get there, anything is possible. But you must replace all doubt and fear with a WHY NOT ME set of beliefs.

I can remember when I was getting ready to try out for my first USA Softball team. 🥎I heard older and more experienced players talking about how the older players had more of a right to be on the team. I could have just agreed and thought about maybe being ready when I was a little older. But instead, something rose up in me that refused to buy into that belief. I felt like I could earn my spot on that team and I went out and competed with all that I had inside of me.

I was blessed to be named to the first ever Olympic Softball Team right before I turned 21 years old. A year later, we brought home the gold in Atlanta Olympic Games. 🥇

Don’t ever let anybody decide your path for you and don’t let them take away your dreams. Fight and commit and sacrifice until you get what you want. Do it with integrity, and treat others around you the right way. Great things will happen!🙌🏼

It’s one thing to reach the top, and it’s another thing to help others see that they can get there too!

I love all the lessons that softball taught me. One of the most important things I learned was that when things weren’t going well, I needed to get back to the fundamentals. I needed to make sure I was doing the little things the right way. Because the little things become BIG things. Take pride in the little things, and you will find success in the BIG things.

I love to pass along the tips that helped me win 3 gold medals. And I hope my passion for the game, even at my age now, is seen by those I am working with. They are my inspiration now 🥎

Time. . . We ALL have the exact same amount of time allotted to us each and every day. We each have 1440 minutes daily to decide how we will spend our time.

I look at my life and see that the most success has come to me when I am focused on MAKING THE TIME COUNT. When I use my time wisely, prioritize well, take care of the most important stuff first, spend quality time with family and friends, get to work on what matters most (including time with God), and stay focused, I find that I accomplish goals that I have set for myself so much more.

One of my biggest time zappers is time that quickly slips away when I am swiping through social media. Does anyone else have this problem like me? I can see what everyone else is doing, but I also am missing out on precious time that I can be accomplishing goals. There is a time and a place to sit and scroll, but too much time becomes a hindrance.

When I played for Team USA, it never felt like I was COUNTING THE TIME. Instead, I always MADE THE TIME COUNT. I had goals, a purpose, a passion, and I trained hard. We all go through different seasons of life, but when you want something and you know what the goal is, set a plan and make the time count! Invest your time well and it will bring a great reward!
