Who could have ever predicted the sea of red & white that Vancouver & Whistler would have become. Although the Olympic brand may be the most powerful marketing machine in the world, it cannot manufacture real, raw emotion like we have experienced at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games. The Vancouver 2010 Olympic Organizing Committee did it by having a clear unwavering vision, attending to the details with tenacity, and staying true to their vision in a disciplined manner (even in the face of so many nay-sayers loudly expressing their opinions of the certain demise of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games). The Vancouver 2010 Organizing Committee believed with every fibre of their being and they set the stage for all Canadians to open their hearts and believe.
Regardless of results, the people of Canada came to understand the value of 24.4 seconds, when at the end of the Gold medal men’s hockey game the United States scored to tie the game, and the hopes of a gold medal seemed to evaporate. When faced with only having a minute, remember that is where it starts … be clear on what you want to achieve and unify your focus, mentally, physically, nutritionally and spiritually and move in the direction of your dreams.
Joannie Rochette’s ability to stay focused only days after her mum’s death, demonstrated to the world that finding the courage and strength is possible when we believe. Joannie Rochette said that on her final jump her legs had nothing left, but she managed to do the jump because she could feel her mum lifting her. Defining moments occur for each of us, our defining moments may not be on the grand stage of the Olympics, but they are there, allow yourself to be a part of them.
The full thrust of the human heart is what propels us … listen to your heart and live by it as we have seen demonstrated by all the Olympians in the past 17 days at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games. Anything is possible, what is it you want to create in your life in 2010?!
