The Russian hockey team was eliminated from the medals following a loss to Finland at the 2014 Winter Olympics
A picture is certainly worth a thousand words as you see President Putin looking a little less than happy.
The goal for the Russian hockey team was nothing short of a gold medal in their home country.
To not have a chance to compete for any medal was certainly devastating for the nation.
It would be equivalent to the USA basketball dream team not achieving any medals at the Summer Olympics. Almost unthinkable.
So…what happens when things don’t go your way?
What happens when you don’t achieve your goal?
Put your head in your hands?

Striking a balance between work and the rest of your life can be challenging. Here’s how to make this goal achievable.
“Making the most of life” is not a goal that needs much selling. Most of us would readily admit to not living completely fulfilled lives, especially those of us suffering from constant work preoccupation. Clients, staff, marketing… let’s face it, the demands on a business owner do not always foster a healthy work-life balance.
What does a balanced life really look like anyway? It’s not the status quo, that’s for sure. The average business-person spends most of his or her day in reactionary mode dealing with the day-to-day work challenges that crop up, rather than being proactive about the work they want to do. Not good. Living in reactionary mode is stressful and frustrating. It takes away an individual’s sense of purpose, and causes them to lose sight of the pursuits that energized them in the beginning.
