When beung unterviewed by the BBC, one of the Olympic cyclists was asked what she thought the impact of the Germans switching the chain and gearing to the atypical side of the bike would be.
‘It’s interesting but nothing I can control, so I’m just focusing on what is in my control.’ She replied.
A wonderful insight to a winning culture that has dominated the Olympics multiple times now.
There will always be the appearance that you can force things to happen, slyly make things happen and control things that are another person’s responsibility.
You can’t make.people listen and you cannot make people act.
If you try to control what is outside your circle of influence, you will only get frustrated, angry and stressed.
Control what you can, don’t stress about what you can’t and work on growing your circle of influence.
