The Olympics are currently taking place in Rio De Janiero. People from all over the world are watching them, and we can learn a lot from the individuals that are competing.
They go through much hardwork and training just to get where they are at; however, martial arts should not be included because it is not a sport because it’s for one to learn self-defense. Anyways, what are your thoughts on the Olympics this year based off the article below.
2. Everyone has to start somewhere. These people are humans just like you and me. Sure, they may have been somewhat gifted genetically, but at some point in their lives, they were all beginners. Don’t let the long road ahead keep you from chasing your dreams. We’re all beginners before we become great.
1. Don’t be afraid to dream an impossible dream. As I watch their interviews and stories, I can’t help but wonder what if they had decided to give up on their dream. It just goes to show that confidence is key. No one ever won a medal that didn’t, at some point, believe that he or she could win. No matter what your goal in life, you won’t make it if you don’t believe.
Win or lose, we’ll all be captivated by the incredible speed, grace, skill, power, strength and sportsmanship of these incredible specimens. Now I’m a total sucker for amazing athleticism, but what always gets me going the most are the stories of these athletes and the roads they’ve taken to get to the Games. They get me all jazzed up with inspiration and sometimes a little (or a lot) choked up.
