Shawn Johnson wins Dancing with the Stars

Shawn Johnson wins DWTS. Yes, she is cute and yes she is a gymnast, and yes, she had a great chance of winning from the start. But it goes much deeper than that. I did a mental toughness segment on DWTS last season and stated that these stars have to be mentally, emotionally, and physically tough. They have to continually learn new dance steps, deal with the pressure as well as the training regimen. Given that Shawn Johnson trained for the Olympics-where she learned to deal with continual pressure and scrutiny-she was the hands down favorite to win-and she did.

In any competition, you need talent-but you also need mental and emotional toughness to win-Shawn Johnson had all three!
I wish her all the luck in the world in the future!
Who was your favorite on the show and why do you think they did not win? I would like to know your thoughts.

Find your passion, commit to the path, enjoy the journey!
