What Do Labron James, Michael Phelps, Mary Lou Retton and Mitch Ditkoff All Have in Common?

Give up?

They are all Bronze Medal winners -- Labron, Mike, and Mary Lou in various Olympics and Mitch in the just announced 2016 Axiom Business Book Awards competition in the Success/Motivation/Coaching category (scroll to #17).

The Bronze Medal, in case you've been in a coma since 1904 (when the Bronze Medal was first bestowed at the St. Louis Olympics) is awarded to the third place finisher. I must admit that when I first heard that I was a Bronze Medal winner, I was a bit disappointed, hoping, like any writer with visions of sugar plums dancing in his head, for the Gold Medal or, least the Silver.
