Find Your Greatness

Tales of an Olympics Addict

Ever since I was a kid I've loved watching sports, Olympic sports in particular. The pomp and circumstance of the opening ceremonies, the pride in one's country, the unbelievable strength of the athletes, it has always amazed me. Deep, down inside it made me feel like maybe, just maybe, I could do anything. Once again this year we were glued to our tv as we watched the opening ceremonies. And once again I loved every minute of it. The next two weeks will be entirely filled with much to much Bob Costas, track and field, and Ryan Lochte. 

The Olympics are like an inspirational cornucopia. From the dramatic back story packages about athletes to the intense performances in each sport, you can't help but stand up and cheer! And already my inspirational tank has been filled. By a Nike commercial. Who would have thought that a commercial about regular, ordinary people would make me stand up and cheer? A commercial that would me make me feel like maybe, just maybe, I could do anything.  

So this morning I hope to encourage you kick the Monday Muunndays to the curb and take the day by storm. Find your greatness in the big or small and go for it with all you've got!! 

There are not grand celebrations here. No speeches. No bright lights. But there are great athletes.  

Somehow we've come to believe that greatness is reserved for the chosen few, for the superstars. 

The truth is that greatness is for all of us. This is not about lowering expectations, its about raising them for every last one of us. 

Because greatness is not in one special place, and its not in one special person. 

Greatness is wherever somebody is trying to find it.

Anyone else obsessed with the Olympics?!
