The Sport’s Philosophy

Sport’s has changed a whole lot from what it used to be, it has become more of a business than anything else, the player’s don’t play for the fun anymore, as now it’s about how much the team can pay them, we all want to make a good living don’t get me wrong, but when you take the fun out of anything, you no longer have fun at what you are doing.
When you play a sport, no matter what that sport is, when you are having alot of fun at it, you excel in many ways and become a star of that sport, when you play a sport whether you have pressure of other’s around you, or your trying to make the big dollars, now your not having fun anymore, you will step on who ever you need to, to advance yourself over them.
When we grow up we play our sports within the neighborhood, around other children in that neighborhood, it starts out as pick up games amongst friends, this is where you develop a passion for the game, then it leads to playing more organized within your community and schools, still developing that passion even greater, as you make different teams and get coached by different coaches, you become better and with being better, your passion becomes even better, this passion is what drives you to become even more of a star in your sport.
Along the journey of your sports days, there will be rocky times which goes without saying, the winning becomes more important than the passion as you see it, I get the fact we all want to win, but winning isn’t everything or the end of the world, there must always be a winner and a loser, but it’s how you lose that makes you into a winner, you have to lose gracefully in order to be successful at winning.
The days of yesterday in sports, is far different then the days of today, today the coaches don’t teach you how to lose gracefully, so you can truly win later, they teach you to play for the money, instead of playing for the passion, the money is where we lose the “passion for the game”, when we play for the money, we then try harder at being better, when we try harder we make mistakes, when we make mistakes the coach than plays the other guy, cause all the coach wants to do is win, so the coach becomes clouded in his judgement and puts winning above the true teaching of the player, so they can truly become a winner together.
When you are a player and play a sport with true passion, you alot of times get overlooked and don’t get respected as the ones that play for the money, even though the passion gives you the most fun, playing a game you love, look at Patrice Bergeron of the Boston Bruins, he was overlooked alot as he started coming up the ranks, but he was very passionate and loved what he was doing, it wasn’t til recently when he started getting the respect, now through all the passion he played with, is loved by many throughout the Hockey world and he has played the game the right way, along his journey to play the sport which his passion has made him into a winner anywhere.

“Sport’s are played with a passion with love, anything else is secondary”

” winning isn’t everything in sports, first you have to lose gracefully, before you can truly win”

Take the “Bull” out of “BULL”ying……

We all have this trait of bullying within us, we all have been bullied as a young child, some more so than other’s, the part we have come to overlook is, the Bully is no different than each one of us.
A Bully is a person whether man/woman, that inflicts fear and takes control of the people around them, it just doesn’t have to be the school bully, that takes your lunch money, or forces you to do things in which you do not want to, A Bully is many things within our lives and even more often then not, is someone close to ourselves, A Bully isn’t just about being physical to inflict harm, the same harm can also be the verbal kind, which affects us by way of our mental side of us, this mental side of the abuse can be just as harmful than the physical side and can have longer effects on us throughout our journey of life.
A Bully can be the School Teacher to their students, it could be an older family member to their younger family, it could be a CEO of a company, abusing their power of authority over other’s, it could also be a public official over all in the community, the bottom line is a Bully is part of all of us and when we let these Bully traits consume us, then we ourselves become the Bully.
These Bully traits only consume us, when we are not true to ourselves, hide our empathy feelings and love of other’s and let the feelings of hate consume all our thoughts and actions, a Bully can be controled when we control ourselves and let our true selves shine, with our true feelings of empathy and love ahead of all else.
We all cringe when we hear all the reports of children committing suicide cause they are a victim of Bullying, we then push the blame to the Individual responsible for this tradgic event, what we should really be doing is, find out why this Individual did this and why did he act on this Bully trait we all have within us, this Individual has learned somewhere that being a Bully, they can control other’s around them, when we look to blame instead of reckcognizing this Bully trait, then we to are hiding within ourselves and not letting our true empathy and love of other’s shine when we need it the most.
We all as Humans hurt and we all have feelings and emotions, it’s when we hide all these that we then become untrue to ourselves and other’s around us, it is also then that we let all the negative traits within us come out, which does nothing but spread the hatred we now have in our Society, when we all stay true to ourselves, let our true empathy and love shine, is when our Society shines with good and forces this hatred to move on, as it can’t affect us anymore.

” a Bully can only control if we ourselves let them control our lives”

” love and empathy are more powerful than hate, we just have to give them a chance to show us”

Is the glass half full, or just see it as half empty

This question of glass half full/glass half empty? Has been in our lives for many many many years, it is a question that only us as Individuals have the true answer for, in the way we percieve everything/anything around us.
The way we percieve things around us, not only affects us, but also affects other’s around us, with this perception and how each of us do it, makes for alot of perceptions, you think the way you percieve something, is the same way people around you percieve it also? If you think the answer is yes, maybe it’s time to change the way of your perceptions.
A perception is like our feelings, how we act, or how we see things, they are all different and with the amount of people in this Society, you can see just how complicated it can be, when other’s don’t percieve something as we ourselves do, we then form this opinion of them and create this hate of them, instead of looking deeper and understanding what or how they percieve differently than we ourselves do.
Whether you percieve the glass as half full, or whether you percieve it as half empty, really means nothing in the grand sceem of things, our perceptions of everything around us may be different, but if we only look deeper into the perception, look deeper into our fellow Man/Woman, we will have a better understanding of life and how everything around us works, the Human body and all it’s parts may seem very complex to us, but it is the perception of how we look at things, that is the most complex and what forces us to be superficial, instead of looking deeper so we can better understand everything/anything around us.
We have all heard of the term the “Mind’s eye”, perception is the eye of our minds, our mind’s are the most complex thing here on Earth, as nobody knows what is in the mind of another, which is a good explanation of why we percieve everything differently, cause our perception is a product of our mind, the Mind is a powerful force within each of us, it can control everything we do if we let it, so the best way for us to take back control, is to look deeper into the perception, instead of being superficial and rationalizing everything around us, so instead of looking at the glass as half empty, just fill it back up and percieve your thirst as being quenched.

” is the glass half empty, or half full, it doesn’t matter if we truly understand”

” Look deep into the perception, so we can understand better of how we see things”

Passion within Sports

Now that the World Cup is airing World wide, You have Soccer being showed on just about every TV worldwide, We here in America can see just how passionate other fans in other Countries are of the biggest sport within their country, some may take their passion a little to far and get way too emotional about a game, even though they don’t know anybody on the team personally, thats because of the betting on the game factor, which has ruined all sports and the true meaning of having a passion of the game.
I get having a passion for a sport, as my sport of passion is ice Hockey, I love everything of the game and miss very much playing the game, as an injury took that from me, but that don’t stop me from keeping up with everything that happens within the sport, true I may get a little to passionate especially when I watch my favorite team the Boston Bruins, but I would never cross the line, like some of these soccer fans of other countries.
When you are passionate about a game or anything in life, if done in the right context, is a natural and beautiful thing for all of us, but when you get passionate because of a gambling thing, or cross the line and hurt other’s around you, than maybe you should change the way you look at any sport, the gambling part of sports is what has ruined all sports of today, cause it forces us to look at sports for the wrong reasons.
When we look at sports for the right reasons, it brings a feeling of warmth, inspiration and unity, not just to ourselves, but to the teams of that sport and all people within our Society, the Boston Bruins of 2013 showed just how this passion is suppose to be, with the Boston Marathon bombing and how it affected the whole region, the Bruins took the region on their backs, not just the players, but the front office and what they did as an organization, they took this slogan #bostonstrong to show what it truly means, the true meaning is “unity” and together we will get through this and be stronger than ever moving forward, the team that year went to game 7 of the Stanley cup finals and was 17 seconds from winning it all, but what was more important, the fact that they reunited a region after such a tradgedy.
True I can see where all the passion comes from, during this World cup of soccer, this only happens every 4 years, but the teams do play on each year in between, but what we need to change is, the passion from the gambling of the game no matter what sport your passionate about, cause when you show true passion of a sport, it shows worldwide throughout our Society and will fix any problem we have in life, as it helps us over come anything that may cross our paths, on our Journey of life.

” passion in sports is what we need, being passionate shows our love and empathy”

” sports will bring good to our society, all we have to do is be passionate back”

” Life is like a box of Chocolates”

This quote from the movie Forest Gump, is a perfect quote for the true message of this film, cause just like in life, you really don’t know what is inside, til you open, explore and try everything, you may never know, you may like what the contents hold.
Forest Gump was one of the finest moments in Tom Hanks career, playing the part of a mentally challenged Individual, who had a great passion and attitude towards life, never afraid to open that box of chocolates and try all of it’s contents, yes in the movies they always make it seem much easier than it really is, but the basic message of this movie is, now matter how hard you think it is, if you do the work correctly and live life correctly, the payoff of living all our lives this simply, out weighs anything else throughout our lives.
The Forest Gump method for us, may seem stupid, or maybe far fetched to be real, but seriously think about it, throughout life we make it alot harder than it really needs to be, they say an Entrepenuer is some one that takes risks? We all have these skills inside us, we just have to have the confidence to unleash these skills, of which we will never find out, unless we open that box of chocolates.
In this Society we look at people like Forest Gump, maybe laugh at them cause they are different? Or maybe ignore them and not take them seriously? What we don’t do enough of is, really look inside the person, cause we are to busy being superficial and judgeing the book by the cover sort of speak, we can all learn from each other, no matter who, what or, where you are from, until we stop on the path we are going and change ourselves, we will never truly know, what the box of chocolates, holds in store for us.

“Life is really like a box of chocolates, we need to open it to see what’s in store”

” We as Humans are not perfect, we can learn from anybody to make ourselves better”

We crave Family, we hurt inside when it’s not there

In today’s Society we have missed the boat, when taking for granted what is important and losing sight of our true priorities.
One of these priorities are, having a true Family around us, that no matter what they are there to bring support to us, which gives us the strength to achieve anything that may cross our paths.
A true definition of family is, a Mother, Father and Siblings, each one of these in their own way, teach us how to grow into a healthy person in life, while we enter the Society of our world today.
I get the fact that we all have rights as an Individual in this World, but I struggle with the fact of other’s imposing their rights on me, like their rights have precedence over mine? We are all equal as Humans in the eyes of God and it is us the people, that are killing Humanity and filling it with nothing but hatred.
With that said, the Gay rights movement is just a movement, that some are trying to impose their rights on other’s, these feelings you have for other’s the same as you, didn’t come from birth, they came from how you were raised as a young child, a child is like a sponge, even at 1 years old you soak up what is around you, even though you may not remember or aware of what you are doing, even though you may not remember at this young age, your mind always remembers and in some way shape or form, it comes out later in life.
When our Parents divorce cause they grow apart, no matter what steps are taken, the child/children always hurt, sometimes in ways we can not see, cause nobody truly knows what is going on in their minds, in Gods eyes a marrige is between a Man and a Woman for good reasons, they each bring their own skills to the child in their ways, a marrige between two Woman or two Men, can’t give the child this, no matter how hard they try, even a Mother bringing up children alone, can’t achieve this either, when a child is brought up missing a Father or a Mother, their will always be a vacancy in their lives.
With this vacancy a child grows up incomplete, sometimes just flows along just to fit in, or acts out to try to get noticed, even if a child grows up with a Mother and Father, usally a life event causes these same effects, which makes communication between the child, Mother and Father very important, to keep the child from hiding within himself, than later in life the child won’t act in ways we can’t explain, when the mind makes us do things, we normally won’t do.
God created us as a Man and a Woman for a reason, not for us to be self centered thinking that everything revovles around “me”, when we operate the way God had envisioned for us to do, it is a beautiful thing to see, but when we continue the road we are on, it will lead to more hatred and destruction of Humanity as we know it.
We are all born with this mind and brain, from as early as a year old, they are a sponge that soaks up everything around it and when bad is around the child, he/she will soak that in, they are too young to react, but later in life as our mind always remembers, it will come out whether we like it or not, the important thing to remember is, as we walk our Journey through life, always know the cycle in life, how things happen, so when they do happen we can change before things spiral out of control, part of living our life is knowing our true selves, out of love and empathy for all that is around us, so we won’t hurt ourselves and other’s around us as we walk our Journey of life and a Mother and Father teach us this in their own way, but good communication with them is the key to a good healthy life.

” what a mother and father bring to their children, there are no words to describe”

” having rights to do things in our lives is good, but not if we impose our rights on other’s”

Trust is a must!!! It keeps us strong moving forward

Trust is a part of our lives we all take for granted, we use it in a way to take advantage of other’s for our personal gain, we use it to try to fit in with a certain clique, when we use it’s power for the wrong reasons, we do nothing but bring much pain and hatred to the Society.
Look at the old days of the Mafia when they use to control the streets, they used this trust to get into the heads of other’s, whether a fellow street thug, or someone in which they want to control, as we can see from all the facts, all it did was create alot of hate and pain, when you see the word “trust” you may see a word, but if you really look deep into this word, you can see the true power this word holds.
The true meaning and power of this word “trust” is a beautiful thing, when being true to the trust it’s power of love and beauty is like no other on this Planet, true trust brings out the love within our hearts, shows the beauty of our souls and spreads within a Society like wildfire, as the Society grows with much strength.
We all have this true trust within us, we just have to release it with sincerity, this Society we live today has forced us to hide this true trust, with all the distrust of each other, the faking of this trust, to gain control of someone or something, just for our own personal gain, we are all guilty of this today and it shows with how Society has become today.
What is truly sad about taking advantage of this word truth is, there are people out there that will stop at nothing and hide their own empathy, so they can gain your trust, take advantage of you, so they can control everything about you and when they are done with you, basically kick you to the curb, as they move on to their next victim, this is the true reality we live with today in this Society. meanwhile the person they kicked to the curb, has changed even without them realizing the why? their true trust has been violated, their self esteem hardly exsists at all and they do what they have to to hide within theirselves, in order to try to move forward with their lives.
This is what we have become within this Society, without this true trust we no longer can show our true love of one another anymore, which is why we have so much hatred in this Society today, the way we change this is, each one of us as an Individual has to stop, look around and look deep within themselves, take stock and inventory of our lives to date, see where it went wrong, then proceed with fixing our wrongs and our mistakes, so we than can stop hiding within ourselves, forgive all that has hurt us in the past, so we can move forward with strength and confidence, as we all do this we will see the true trust and the love coming back to us, just like God forgives us for whatever we have done, no matter how bad the situation, we to have to forgive so we can move on stronger along our Journey of life.

“Trust is a word that it’s real power is within each of us”

“The power of trust brings out our forgivness and love of everything we encounter”

Life’s Journey and all we take for granted

We all as Humans start out our Journey’s in very much the same way, but as we grow in life and learn how to percieve what is around us, we tend to take for granted what is important to us and become distorted by misinformation, when other’s try to teach us the right way to go, we form our own opinions and tone out those who may try to help us, we tend to believe that our ways are the only way and form a shield around us, that protects ourselves from other’s, even though these people are good for us and try to help us move forward.
There is no Textbook for walking our Journey through Life, but as Humans we all have Common Sense that guides us along the way, this common sense is something we take advantage of, as we lose sight of it and how it works properly, when we lose sight of something as simple as common sense, we get lost in our own lives and than proceed to distort everything and anything that comes across our path.
As we all walk our Journey’s and grow into a Society of many, it is easier to keep track of ourselves, than to keep track of the many within a Society, so we develop this “all about me” attitude, which makes us think that, Society revolves around me, but in reality a Society revolves around all of us and what we bring to it, we may contribute as an Individual, but it is the unity of many, that help a Society grow and prosper.
During our Journey and as we grow in life, we all get consumed with our daily living, which leads to not paying attention to what’s around us, or even what’s happening around the Planet, we tend to focus on ourselves and think we are the only ones hurting, when things don’t go our way, there is always someone somewhere on this Planet that has it worse than ourselves, even if we think our situation is bad, someone else’s situation is worse, just that we are so consumed with ourselves, we don’t see what is going on around us.
We take many things for granted along our Journey of Life, something as simple as a license to drive, which is a privilege and not a right, when we recieve this license, we then think the laws of the road are there for other’s and not us as well, instead of driving the speed limit, we try to go faster then the other’s, so we can get to wherever first, cause everything revolves around us and in this fast paced Society, this is how we act from other’s around us, during our Journey through life, it takes work on all our parts as a whole, to help Society grow and prosper, yet with this “all about me” attitude, it makes us lazy and not willing to work at all, as much as we all want to succeed and grow within Society, it takes work from everybody within it, not take anything for granted as there are other’s out there worse off than us, what we bring to society as an Individual, is how Society grows as a whole and Unity of all of us, makes all our Journey’s through life a happy journey with strength and confidence.

” never take for granted anything we have, as other’s may not be so fortunate”

” we may be an Individual, but a Society is made of many Individuals”

The Human insight along this Journey called Life

Do we really and truly know the true power of the Human body?
This is a question to some, that think they have the answer, as to other’s when things happen to us, we still ask why? The Human body is made of quite a few different elements, some of these elements we understand, but still other elements like the Human brain, the mind and even the soul, no matter what the experts say they know, we may never truly understand what makes them tick.
When Life events happen to us, each one of us reacts very differently to what seems may be the same event, it is how we program ourselves from a young age, there was a story on the news, of a young boy who had Autism, didn’t speak for first 8 years of his life, then a car out of control, broke through his house and ended up in his bedroom, after this event and when he was home from the hospital, one day he reached to his Mom, grabbed her hand and said to her, ” Mom don’t cry”, this boy is now 21 and full of life and communication. We can’t explain these things, maybe a miracle of God? Even the best Doctors can”t diagnose this, cause we may never now the true power of the mind and the brain.
Each and every one of us as Humans are so similar, but yet we are so unique to each other as well, regardless of your background, where your from, or even your color of skin, we are all the same as Humans, we may be unique to each other, which makes it even more important for us to work together and use this uniqueness to our advantage, to become better and stronger on our Journey of Life, while we keep moving forward.
Sometimes when things happen to us, we become ashamed and don’t want other’s to see our weakness, so we start the process of hiding within ourselves, which does nothing but make our situation worse, only if we knew when these things happened, if we turned this weakness into a strength, this is what makes us better and stronger moving forward, everything happens for a reason, it’s the reason that helps us move forward, so instead of getting overwhelmed with feelings of shame, we need to reach down deep to fix the problem, so we can move forward and not drift backwards into unknown territory, which only compounds the situation into something bigger than it has to be.
The Human body is beyond extraordinary, it heals itself in ways we can’t explain, it reacts to extreme conditions, in ways we conciously would not put ourselves through, but yet the Human body is very durable, when we all speak our mind, do other’s really know what your mind is saying inside? Nobody knows what goes on in each other’s mind and this is the greatest mystery yet to be discovered on this Planet Earth, so yes we as Humans are very similiar, no matter what background your from, but we are also very unique to each other also, which makes it that much more important to work together in unity, to make all our Journey’s of life better and with strength, so we all can be happy in all we do throughout.

“The power of the Human body, we may never find out just how powerful”

” the human brain and the mind are full of mystery and much power”

The Clouded judgement

We all within our Society have suffered from having clouded judgement, these are choices we make out of just reacting, instead of taking the time to really look into what we are making a choice on.
Most of the time this clouded judgement comes from, a time in our lives that has harmed us and we are only trying to protect ourselves from further harm, this happens to anybody and it always happens without us being truly aware, of what we are doing.
There are alot of things going on inside our own bodies and the smartest of Doctors still have no answers, the Human body is the most complex thing anywhere on this Planet, we do things to protect ourselves from any harm and most of the time we don’t realize we are doing, our brain and our minds may black things out, that keep us from feeling pain, the things may still be in there, but we don’t acknowledge them, to keep the pain away, we all do this to some degree, so it helps us move forward on our journey.
We all have Life Events happen to us in one way or another, it is these events that shape our minds and brains, into ways we can’t explain in order to keep from the pain of the event, because we don’t understand the why’s, is the reason why we have these clouded judgments, which leads to us making poor choices, then we get caught up in this and continue as we are, cause we don’t want to except the reality of the situation to hide further, showing on the outside we are okay.
We as Human Beings may be unique to each other, but we are also the most complex of species on the Planet, alot of times we follow what we think is the norm, but what is really normal? What may be normal for one, is not the normal for another, even when someone is a leader and develops his followers, is his way really what you want? When we follow others, we do so not knowing truly what we are doing, which makes it more important to stay true to self, know and understand what is best for you, so as these events happen, we can fix the problem as they come, with the least amout of pain and harm to ourselves, as we do this we will find this clouded judgement and our bad choices will minimize greatly and we all will be more happier as we walk our journey of life.

” clouded judgement can only affect you if you let it affect you with bad choices”

” Humans may be complex, but we are also the smartest of the species”
