Four Lessons We Can Learn From Simone Biles

Simone Biles is a remarkable example of a young woman who refused to let her beginnings define her ending. Regardless of whether your wheelhouse is sports or something else, there are attitudes and attributes displayed in this incredible lady that can be a benefit to all.  With remarkable skill, prowess and a winner's attitude, this Olympic rock star personifies excellence in numerous ways, but these are some of my favorite:

1. She Has Command of Her Gifts


You don't participate in the Olympics if you don't have the chops. Simone has them for days.

2. She Knows Who She Is

Faced with the prospects of being offended by a commentator's remarks, she took the high road and didn't let that remark define who she is in any way.

3. She Shares the Glory

Again, at the Olympics, you're with the best of the best. While she knows who she is, she knows who her competitors are as well. She knows she has to bring her A-game because she expects that from the other contenders in the field.

4. She Is Herself

She absolutely refuses to live anyone else's story but her own. You've got to respect that.

Attitude is everything. Simone well knows that where you've been doesn't necessarily determine where you're going. Where will you go in the future? With the mindset of a champion, you cannot be denied. Thanks, Simone for showing us what that looks like.

    She is one of the greatest athletes ever, with perfect human form and agility. She happens to be a woman with dark skin. What can racist and sexist jerks say now.
