Today’s message is especially dedicated to all the athletes competing in the Special Olympics Summer Games this weekend at The College of New Jersey. Thank you for “Inspiring Greatness.”

Beth is a Philadelphia 76ers Cheerleader (Hare Raiser). If you don’t know, a hare raiser is one of the girls that gets thrown around and flipped at basketball games. She is also representing the NBA in China later this year. I spent some time recently with Beth and asked her what it took to become a successful cheerleader. Here’s what she had to say…

1. Enthusiasm
2. Physical fitness
3. Mental fitness

Beth also mentioned that you need to work as a team. You’re only as strong as your weakest link.

Can this apply to what you do?

I asked Beth if ANYONE could be a cheerleader with the right training and she said, “Yes, definitely.”

So whether you want to become a great accountant, swimmer or computer programmer, know that it IS possible. Greatness is already inside of you, you just have to know the strategy and believe that it is indeed possible.

Thank you Beth and…

Thanks for reading.

Be sure to tune in tomorrow for a full report of Day 1 from the Special Olympics Summer Games.
