Really pumped up that Olympics are starting real soon. I wanted to shoot a quick video to discuss some of things that I think a really important about this upcoming Olympics. There a 4 things specifically that I think are critical that we understand when it comes to these athletes at the Olympics.
The first thing that we need to celebrate in this Olympics is the athlete. We have to understand the amount of training that goes into getting into this position or getting qualifying for the Olympics. It’s a lifelong process for many of these athletes and we need to celebrate it. So, as you watch the Olympic Games this year, make sure you celebrate the athlete.
The second thing that we need to celebrate is the champions of the Olympics. That is those people win Gold, Silver, or Bronze. They used their talent, mental strength and abilities to medal. We need to celebrate them because they are true champions.[bquote_right]If they qualified for the Olympics they already are a winners[/bquote_right]
The third thing we need to celebrate is everyone that is participating in the Olympics. If they got to the Olympics they are a winner. It takes a lot of hard work, it takes a lifelong of training, just to get there. As you watch the Olympics make sure you celebrate all the athletes no matter where they finished they are all true champions.
Finally, let’s celebrate sport and competition. Without sport we wouldn’t have the Olympics, it’s an awesome time to celebrate sport. It is also a great time to celebrate competition. Competition brings the best out in each of us, it makes us better, it makes everything much better.
As you watch the Olympics over the next couple weeks. Make sure you take time just to sit back, and enjoy the sport that you’re watching. Understand the sacrifices that each athlete has made. Celebrate the Gold, Silver and Bronze winners in each event. Then celebrate all the athletes, all the countries and all the participants that are involved in this wonderful event called the Olympics.
