A year after the 2012 Olympic games, I still find this commercial inspiring:
"Luck doesn’t get you to the Olympic games. You can’t wish your way onto the podium. You can’t buy it, or hope for it. It’s not enough to dream about it. Luck didn’t get me to the Olympics, I swam here." ~ Ryan Lochte
Whatever your dream, have the courage and tenacity to make the swim.
