2 Do I believe I can win an Olympic gold medal?

This belief is my choice. There is no reason to believe I cannot. Deciding to believe I can’t is a choice. It is a stupid choice.

I need a strategy. A path. I’ll need a coach and/or mentor – the best in the world would be great. I’ll need inspiring, supportive and honest peers.
