No matter what you are striving to achieve in life, one thing is certain reaching for your goals will take you out of your comfort zone. That's sometimes scary, but it's also what makes going after your dreams an enriching and vitalizing experience. Monaco Revue's TALKING SUCCESS brings you our discussions with achievers in various fields on how they achieved success. Principles of success are transferable across all fields. So we hope that whatever your dreams, you'll be inspired by these interviews to achieve your own success.

Position:
US sprinter


Accomplishment: Gold medallist of the 200m race at the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City (notable also because Smith and fellow US sprinter, John Carlos, who won bronze, gave a Black Power salute while receiving their medals)


In a nutshell:
"It's going to take work, with a capital 'W'. And you have to be persistent in that work."

"You have to have a vision of what you want to do."

"...you are going to run into painful acts" which are "good to maintain the faith of the individual"
