The Journal of Steffanie Rivers: Stay Focused Like An Olympian and Reach Your Goals | VIDEO

*While most people are satisfied to simply watch others reach their goals, it’s important to stay focused on your personal goals and the daily effort it takes to turn your dreams into reality. Take Erin Jackson as an example: She’s one of the most recent athletes to capture a gold medal representing Team USA in the Winter Olympics! 

Jackson is from Ocala, Florida. She’s the first Black woman to win an individual medal in speed skating. Her gold medal win came in the 500-meter inline skating event. Jackson crossed the finish line just .08 seconds ahead of the second-place – silver medalist. And just .17 seconds ahead of the third-place – bronze medalist.

Jackson won the gold by just a fraction of a second. This is a testament to why it’s important to perform at your best every time because your competition is right behind you trying to take the win. Stay motivated and on task.
