I am loving the euphoric tones of the Olympic coverage this Summer. It’s had my attention from the opening ceremony, for being such a rousing merriment of the best of human endeavour.
The event has been superb ,…one that has led many to commentate it ‘has lifted the mood of the nation’.
The games have been a marvellous feat that has generated huge amount of ‘feel good stories’ ….celebrated achievements, personal bests & courageous fight backs.
Moreover, it has exemplified what can happen through hard work & dedication to an ultimate individual or team objective.
As a positive consequence my average Television viewing has increased early in the morning & later in the evening as I get my Olympic quota & will delightfully look forward to doing the same during the Paralympics.
However, it’s a reminder that as this celebration of achievements draws to a close, I’m all too aware that the daily numbing TV will return, so back to other engaging and positive items like creative reads!
I have many inspiring objectives to achieve personally which has led to a deliberate lack of time allocated in the calendar to sit and watch television…be it reality tv or blanket rolling news about the state of the economy (awareness, yes….but 24 hour coverage? Over analysis!)
U.S authors Jeffrey Gitomer & Darren Hardy have both written about how individuals should think about how tv is contributing to their success (or lack of it!) It has certainly helped me assess how much I’ve watched in the last year & what it’s worth by asking …a) IS this contributing to my success? & b) how is this impacting in my life in a positive way?
So, I will happily sit (for a little while at least) and catch the last remaining highlights of what has been a tremendous celebration of human sporting achievement, granted not everyone loves sport but it’s given me even more inspiration to get out there, reach for the stars and achieve my personal goals.
How has the coverage of the games over the last few weeks inspired you?
