1. UNLEASH GREATNESS.
Whatever greatness in the pool means for you, whether it is making your first sectionals or provincials cut, this poster will remind you to unleash your inner greatness every single day.
It is produced on glossy, high quality paper, and comes in at 2 feet by 3 feet, which means it can not only remind you to be great, but also cover up any unfortunate holes or otherwise unsightly portions of your wall.
“Be not afraid of greatness.” — William Shakespeare
2. I ONLY FEAR NOT TRYING.
It’s shocking how many swimmers are more afraid of the hardship of the journey than of the regret they would face if they don’t try at all.
Don’t be that swimmer.
Be the athlete who gives it their all, and who can walk away from the pool knowing that they gave it their absolute best, and can do so without regrets or fear.
“In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take.”
3. CHALLENGES ARE THE DOORWAYS TO EXCELLENCE.
How often have you stopped cold after a setback? Or been demoralized by a defeat? If you are like me, more than a couple times.
This poster is designed to remind you that all too often success is just on the other side of the struggle and grind.
In other words, if you want excellence, you gotta be willing to punch through a few challenges on the way.
“We don’t grow when things are easy. We grow when we face challenges.”
4. DREAM BIGGER.
It can be hard to create big goals when we are surrounded by small-minded friends, family, and swimmers. For every athlete that accomplished something worthwhile there was someone who told them it couldn’t be done.
That they should think smaller, and dream smaller. This is your reminder to think big. To dream big. And to act big.
“…with hard work, with belief, with confidence and trust in yourself and those around you, there are no limits.” –Michael Phelps
5. DECIDE WHAT YOU WANT.
The most freeing moment is making a firm and unwavering decision to after a goal. To have the end goal specified, a plan to get there, and the determination to see it through.
After all, it all begins with a decision. Once made, everything else seems to fall into place.
This poster is designed to remind you to live up to your decision on a daily basis.
“Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson
