Are you running like an Olympic athlete or just strolling around the block?

Would you enter the Olympics if you knew that only a little over 2% (2.785714%) of the Olympians would walk out of Sochi with a gold medal?  The Olympic athletes typically practice for 3-4 years, 6 days a week for 7 hours a day. The training is on the basics and for a 1-2 minute event. And as is often the case, in the competitive atmosphere the people who were supposed to win did not.

Start thinking like an Olympic athlete and be the best you can be. Take home the gold with superior customer service. Grow market share by being the best.
