A great lesson from a unique athlete

I just learnt the Australian silver medalist in the moguls skiing event at the to 2010 winter olympics is a self made multi millionaire. Apparently he has been for the past 7 or 8 years!

I don't know the details of his wealth nor am I interested in what the general media's opinions are. In this example, my learning comes from 'picking the fruits instead of studying the roots' as Jim Rohn taught.

From my understanding, here is a person, with all the choice in life he needs. He chooses to be an athlete, and a very successful one, requires no funding or sponsorship, does things on his own terms and compete's because he just wants too. A nice place to be for an athlete, or for anyone in life!

My question is, why don't more athletes and coaches develop at least one additional leveraged income stream on a very casual or even part time basis, during the competitive years or most productive coaching years, that continues to work even when they don't?

What impact might building a leveraged or passive income stream have on your performace as an athlete or coach?

Come the athlete's retirement or the coach wanting a break/retire from coaching, it would be nice to have leveraged or passive income there to live on and give you choice in your life. How would this make you feel? What would you do if you didn't have to work? What you're doing now? Interesting questions....

I trust you're not letting your busy-ness or ego get in the way of your truth in this life time!
