Everyone can measure their lives in a number of days, weeks, or even years. For me, I measure my life in intervals of thirty seconds; everything hinges on these sets of thirty seconds. Thirty seconds will determine whether I am seen as a “winner” or just another athlete who missed the mark that day. What most people don’t see, is that for every thirty seconds of my life put on display before hundreds of thousands of people, there are years of preparation behind the scenes. It’s those years of hard work, motivation, and preparation that determine how these thirty seconds will go.
