Like most folks, we at Khan Academy are following the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat throughout these Olympic Games. One of our employees has taken to shouting a new greeting during this time:
Until today, we didn’t really know what she meant, but as we are all supportive, we’ve been returning her greeting just as enthusiastically.
Today, the suspense was finally over as she shared the inspiration for such enthusiasm: this article by Danielle Collins which details the 5 inspiring attributes of Olympians:
2. Visualisation (It is the London Olympics so we’re going with the British spelling)
3. Ability to set goals
4. Self belief
5. Healthy body attitude
Olympians, thanks for inspiring Danielle who inspired Esther, who is inspiring us! It’s one big circle of inspiration! If you feel the same way, perhaps you’ll try greeting folks the OLYMPIC ATTITUDE! way.
