London Olympics 2012 – Questions will be asked!

Hope you are enjoying watching the London Olympics.

I just loved the opening ceremony, it was so eccentric and inspiring with greats from the past and the present.

I’ve just watched the news, after the first day of events. It was talking about how great the ceremony was and how there was a bit of a mixed reception in the worlds press over it, as they didn’t understand what it was all about.
I just love that as it is what makes GB so great.
We are a wide mix of cultures and nations. We do have history that is both pleasing and displeasing. We have sports such as cricket and cheese rolling. We have a spirit that can fight back for justice.

Then the news went on about the first days events and Team GB’s inability to pick up a Gold Medal! Even any medal at the moment and that if it continues into day 2 – Then Questions Will Be asked!

Joy at the London 2012 Olympics

The Olympics are founded on values and they are:

  • respect – fair play; knowing one’s own limits; and taking care of one’s health and the environment
  • excellence – how to give the best of oneself, on the field of play or in life; taking part; and progressing according to one’s own objectives
  • friendship – how, through sport, to understand each other despite any differences.

So where does  ‘Questions will be asked’ come into this?
If athletes from across the world are all giving of their best in an open and fair competition there will be winners and there will be losers. It’s a fact. If our athletes have given their very best and devoted their life and precious time to being the best they can, then we should be celebrating them. Praising the winners and thanking the losers for being the best they can be.
There is no shame in not being a winner each and every moment of the day, if you try your best.

We now live in a world where if you are not giving 110%, all the time, you are not seen as pulling your weight. We all have jobs to do, maybe a business to run, a home to care for, a family to love and to try to be sociable and environmentally aware too.
If you are not managing all of this then you are a lightweight……

Lets go back to the Olympic values in our daily lives

  • respect – fair play; knowing one’s own limits; and taking care of one’s health and the environment
    Respect your body, take care of your body, respect people around you, your environment, your society.
    Take time to slow down and give 100%. That’s all we can give and all we need.
  • excellence – how to give the best of oneself, on the field of play or in life; taking part; and progressing according to one’s own objectives.
    Excel in looking after yourself, giving your best and others will respond back like that to you, have objectives that give you pride and hope and that don’t take you away from the things you love.
    Working all the hours you can, not seeing your family, gives them a great home. Does it really meet your dream of being a family and sharing life together? 
  • friendship – how, through sport, to understand each other despite any differences.
    Value peoples points of view, they will be different to yours as we are all unique. Value their merits too and they will value you.
    Differences should be cherished as it is what makes humans the amazing species we are as we have a brain to think, create, grow and develop.
    Where will your creativity take you?

Take time to slow down and you will do your body good as we all stress ourselves out to much. This leads to overload on our adrenal glands. We all have a bit of adrenal stress as we live our lives in the fast lane.
Take action to rest yours and you can then still be the best.
