Monday Morning Motivation – Usain Bolt: The greatest of all time

Usain Bolt.

Who can fail to be inspired by ‘the fastest human ever timed’: Usain Bolt? “Lightning Bolt” is the holder of 9 gold medals in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay at three consecutive Olympics. He is also an eleven-time World Champion.


Good things come to those who believe.

Better things come to those who are patient.

And the best things come to those who never give up.

But before anything else, you have to believe.

“It’s hard, it’s like hard work. It’s day in, day out sacrifice. day in, day out.”

“Faster means they’re not going to catch me. No matter who you are, no matter what you’re doing, no matter how focussed you are, no matter how ready you think you are, you’re not going to catch me ’cause that last 10 metres is going to take me three and a half strides to cross the finish line… and this is where the glory begins because when I cross the finish line, I do what I want. Celebrate ‘To di world’. Do crazy stuff because I put my flavour to it. I make them love and enjoy.”

“He has some very special qualities, but as a competitor and as a person he has the ability to focus”.

Don’t think about the start of the race. Think about the ending. – Usain Bolt
