The Power of a Positive Attitude
|August 15, 2012||Filled under London 2012 Olympics|
By now we all know what happened to Jason Burnett at the 2012 London Olympics. The making of a true athlete, trampoline or otherwise, is a strong mindset and belief and nothing but positive attitude.
After Jason’s heartbreaking final these were some of his words “… in Beijing I had an incredible experience, and I came out on top,” said Burnett. “And now I’ve got to experience the complete opposite of that. I’ve failed — miserably, some might say — but I get to experience both ends of the spectrum, and I think just the experience in itself is a good one to have.” (taken from the same link as above)
Jason could have said something like “I can’t believe this happened” “I’m so upset” “this is it for me, I’ll never compete again” … but he didn’t. He took the “high road” with a smile on his face!! That is the mark of a true champion!
Check out this video of Jason speaking right after his final in London. He, in our opinion, is a true champion!
Remember, stay safe and have fun!
