As the 2020 ( yes you read that right in 2021) Olympic games kick off officially today in Tokyo with the start of competition, it has me thinking of their motto “Higher, Faster, Stronger and Together”. That we can all make the world a better place through sport. Notice the word competition is not included, but that together has been added. This is important because together we as a society move forward and make ourselves better. Nobody has ever achieved anything substantial all on their own efforts.
The Olympic values are also values that we should all adopt in our regular lives. These are joy of effort, fair play, respect for others, pursuit of excellence and the balance between body, will and mind. All pretty much common sense values when you come to think about it, but sometimes common sense is not that common. So isn’t it about time that we all started holding ourselves to a much higher standard, so we can make ourselves and those around us much better.
Today I am thankful for the peace and quiet that comes with getting up as the sun rises, live international sports on tv even at 5am and the joy and sportsmanship displayed the athletes.
