The Significance of The Journey – Our Irish Olympians

The Importance of The Journey - Our Irish Olympians

Welcome to Motivate Me this week and the importance of travel.

Training to become an Olympian. During the week she listened to one of the rowers and talked about how she parked her career three years ago so that she could focus entirely on her Tokyo trip. For many of the Irish athletes, the odds are slim – less financial resources and, in many cases, having to go abroad to find facilities that meet the demands of their discipline.

Training as an Irish Olympian. It’s an amazing journey and, by and large, I am celebrating each and every one of our athletes. I keep my biggest cheers for those blown out of the amateur setup. They have given the most and have no professional sports contracts / careers to fall back on. They are the real Olympians in my opinion.

Your personal weight loss journey will not require the same physical exertion as our Olympians, but in many cases it will require significant mental exertion. You won’t find a modern day Olympian who doesn’t have or use the resources of a sports psychologist to prepare for major events.

We at Motivation have long recognized these challenges and our support tools will help you overcome and deal with these psychological problems as soon as they arise. Defeat or defeat is routine and how athletes deal with it is just as important as their physical well-being. We also operate a guilt-free zone at Motivation and briefs, as we call them, are part of the journey. We learn from mistakes and move on. It’s a crucial part of learning on the journey.

Your own weight loss path should be self-recognized, and most importantly, take pride in your accomplishments, even if you have not yet reached your weight goal.

In our world, our Olympians are all those customers who are dedicated to travel. The trip is not a guarantee of gold, but it does give customers the confidence, knowledge, and ability to hold a weight at or near the destination.

The importance of travel should never be underestimated or underestimated.


As always, thank you for giving me your time. Remember, you are not alone! The motivation community will always be there to support you.
