Michael Phelps won the highest number of medals in the entire Olympics – 28 medals across five Summer Games. Michael Phelps’ Olympics medals tally consists of 23 gold medals – the most Olympic gold medals ever won – three silver and two bronze medals. Why was he such a success? Discipline? Hard Work? The perfect swimmer’s body? The best coaching staff?
The answer is the Discipline of habits. Phelps had many habits which he incorporated into routines. He would visualize the perfect race—each stroke, turn, and finish—before and after going to bed. His stretching regime would start at the arms and end at the ankles. He knew exactly how long his warm-up before each race would take. He listened to the same music before each race.
This is exactly why being a Disciplined man is so important to create the life you desire. Without it, we might not know who Michael Phelps is and he might never have become an Olympic swimmer.
