Svaha Spirit Series ~Follow Your Dreams~


Olympic athlete (The Luge) Ruben Gonzalez is in the Motivational Speakers Hall of Fame.  After watching this video and surfing through his website, I can see why.  His website is incredibly motivational!  Ruben is training for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics.  When he completes in Vancouver, at the age of 47, he will become the first person EVER to compete in four Winter Olympics in four different decades.  I love these kinds of  stories leading up to the Olympic venues!

    Very cool. Thanks for sharing, Tracy. Today was definitely one of those days that I needed this little push.

    I like this message from his site. It’s so true:

    “I don’t believe in traditional motivational speakers. Motivation is not effective because it comes from the outside. Motivation is someone else pushing you to do something. With motivation, even if you do get excited, the feeling wears out in 90 days.

    That’s why I always say motivation is like deodorant – you need to constantly reapply it because it wears out!

    Inspiration is completely different. Inspiration comes from the inside. From your heart. From your soul. Inspiration doesn’t wear out. “

    I love how he says to vividly imagine your goal being reached. What’s it going to feel like, taste like, smell like, be like when you reach your goal.

    I know it works to really get into visualizing your dreams coming true! What a cool guy!
