Go for Gold !

David Rudisha of Team Kenya got the gold medal for the 800 meters in this year’s Olympics.

He went further and broke the world record finishing the race at a record time of 1 minute 40.91 seconds.

The 800 meters race is one of the most challenging races to win.

There are a few lessons that nurses and caregivers can learn from David Rudisha.


  •  Right Mindset

David Rudisha had his mind-set on getting the Gold Medal. That was his goal.

Nurses and caregivers need to have a mindset of succeeding in whatever ambition they may have.

It may be to complete that Degree that you have been thinking about starting, getting that promotion, saving to buy a property, succeeding in business or whatever your ambition may be, set your mind on the goal.


  • Prepare Well

For the 800 meters race you cannot just be a sprinter, because sprinters run fast but tend to burn out before the end of the race.

Long distance or endurance runners go the distance but do not have the speed to keep up with the sprinters.

To be an 800 meter runner you have to be the perfect balance of a sprinter and an endurance runner.

In order to prepare well, when you have a goal, do whatever you need to do or practice until you get good at it. If you are in college, you need to keep on studying.

If you are looking to get that promotion, you need to work hard and smart, taking relevant courses that will make you qualified for the position.

If you have a business, you need to keep studying the market so that your business keeps up with the demand.

Knowing how to prepare in order to be successful is crucial.


  • Consistency

David Rudisha trains five to six days a week. There is no room for excuses like, “today I do not feel like it!”

Consistency in whatever you are trying to achieve is the key. It is so easy to get discouraged or get lazy and abandon your ambition by the wayside.

Discouragements may also come your way or it may appear like you are taking too long to succeed. You simply need to remain consistent and success will come eventually.


  • Success

If you get the right mindset, prepare well and be consistent, there is no reason why you should not get your gold!
