Every four years the top athletes from around the world converge on one city to compete on behalf of their country. Twenty-eight different sports participate in the summer Olympics, and every four years, viewers from around the world, such as those in our office, follow these athlete’s achievements, hoping to see their country’s representatives come out on top.
However, these athletes are not just born with their skills and abilities. Each individual and team spends the three years preceding each Olympics training and practicing their respective sport.
Many spend over forty hours a week with trainers and team mates preparing for the singular event that will propel them into the spotlight. Despite all this work and many competitions throughout each year, most will only have one shot to show the world what they can do.
At Four Pillars we also spend each day training. Like coaches working with athletes, our corporate trainers continuously teach others how to be successful through having a positive attitude and maintaining a powerful work ethic. However, rather than happening once every four years, our Olympics occurs each and every day. Members of our office constantly have the chance to prove to themselves and others that they are a success.
Through friendly competition with others in the office, and networking with management from around the globe we consistently find our weaknesses and work to improve upon them. Through this improvement Four Pillars is able to grow and go for the gold in our business.
As our office follows the competitions occurring in Rio de Janeiro, we will continue to coach so that each of our office members has the opportunity every day to succeed and be recognized by those around them. Through the triumphs and the downfalls, we will continue to grow and be champions. “Hard days are the best, because that’s when champions are made.” – Gabby Douglas, 2012 & 2016 Olympic Champion, U.S.A. Women’s Gymnastics.
