Understanding the importance of long-term planning -- and being the absolute best version of yourself on the path to future success -- takes patience, hard work and appreciation for the support team in your life. In this exclusive interview with Kelly and Maria, world champion swimmer Michael Chadwick shares several examples of how pairing patience with persistence has paid off.
