Okay, so real quick one tonight but it just happened! Crazy, I know.
I was chatting away to my friend's cousin who I'm doing an assignment on for uni. She's an Australian gymnast and one of the most awesome people I've ever met. She also finds out in 13 days whether she'll make the Olympic team (cross your fingers for her, guys!). PLUS she's 17 AND she already missed out on the Commonwealth Games because she was injured just weeks before she was due to leave. She's a trooper and she totally deserves to make it to the Olympics.
Anywho, we were talking quotes and she gave me a bunch that she lives by that are just so dang cute I wanted to share! So here you go, straight from the mouth (or phone) of a (potential) Olympian :)
"You try, you fail. You try, you fail. But the only time you ever really fail is when you stop trying."
"Dream, believe, create, succeed."
"If we don't change our direction, we are likely to end up where we are headed." (My favourite)
And from Lance Armstrong's book:
"A true accomplishment is when you do something that people said you couldn't do."
Plus one that was all her own:
"I never even thought of giving up until other people asked if I was going to."
Hear that 'other people'? BACK OFF, okay?
Umm... hope you enjoyed!
