Do you know that there are currently 28 different sports represented in the Olympics?
Can you imagine what it would look like if the gymnasts were asked to power lift? It would probably be entertaining but I doubt any new powerlifting records would be set.
Now I’m sure that there must be some mutual admiration, respect and perhaps even some envy amongst the different sports because of the attention and money associated with them, but the athletes know that they are going to perform their best at the sport that they are good at.
What about you?
Are you performing at something you’re good at and have natural talents for? Or are you pursuing endeavors because of the attention and money associated with them?
So how do you know what you have natural talents for? You try lots of things. And you learn that some come to you easier than others.
This is not to say that you don’t pursue things because they are difficult, because being great at anything is hard.
What I am suggesting is that when you find something that really resonates with your natural abilities then double down on it, and if you’re a power lifter then so be it. Don’t waste your time envying the gymnasts.
