There is no ” I” in Team……..

To be a Champion in any team sport, comes down to the fact that, it’s not about one or two guys, it is totally a team effort and the Boston Bruins have proved that with the great season they are having. On the verge of yet another Stanley cup victory and the way they as a team rebounded from a lack luster performance in game two, they go two games to one in game three, in the best of a seven game series. Game three wasn’t just a win for the Bruins, they did so in the house of the St. Louis blues and in a dominating way, final score was seven to two, while going four for four on the power play also. This team has a good mix of veteran players, as well as great young talent, with a coach that has his finger on the pulse of each game. Chemistry is another part of being a true champion, it is how you are respected by your teammates, knowing your teammates so you can move as one on the ice with pin point passing, as you gain control of the puck away from the other team. The team whether on the ice or off the ice, has to bond together and be ready to battle for each other, like being a family, with the coaches being the parents of the family. These Boston Bruins are a special group, that have come together in harmony, as they put aside the ego’s to work hard at achieving the most prestigious trophy in all of sports…………….. Lord’s Stanley cup.

The Bruins might of dominated in last nights game three match up, but let’s not forget the St. Louis Blues, this team is built very similar to the Bruins, I am sure game four these Blues will be ready to battle once again, the Bruins will have to be ready for the fight and respond as they did in game three. To get this far and be the last two teams standing within the league, with a chance of being the champions of the hockey world, says a lot of both these teams, now with these Bruins being two wins away from the coveted prize, is no time to become comfortable, as the last two wins are just as hard as the last fourteen. For those true fans of the game of hockey, you have basically two seasons in one and we the fans are blessed with such a great game, now through the years the game has had some changes to it, like being a much faster game then years before, but the basics of the game stay in tact, like the first season being the regular season and the second season being the playoffs. With the playoffs there is a slogan we call ” Mission sixteen”, basically we call it that because it takes sixteen wins to win the playoffs and become the keeper of Lord’s Stanley’s cup.

My earliest memory of these Bruins was also against the St. Louis Blues, with the now famous greatest player to ever lace up the skates………… He is Bobby Orr and with an assist from Derek Sanderson, the rest is history with Bobby flying through the air in front of the goalie, for the goal and the winner of Lord’s Stanley’s cup. The Boston Bruins have a rich history and being one of the six original teams within the National Hockey League, not too mention some of the great hockey talent to wear the spoke “B” on their chest, is the reason why I myself Bleed black and gold. With two more wins this special team of the Boston Bruins can cement their names within the rich history of the organization.

Like Tom Brady has become the G. O. A. T. of the football world, we here in the city of Boston has witnessed two G. O. A. T’s of their sports, with Tom Brady and Bobby Orr. There is a lot of sports history here in the city of Boston and with the Bruins on the brink of winning a championship, along with the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots all in the same season, which hasn’t been done since the season of 1935/1936, truly gives this city of Boston the title of ” Titletown U. S. A.”.

I love the game of hockey, played the game when I was younger and with my favorite team so deep in the playoffs, like two wins away from winning Lord’s Stanley’s cup deep, it is very exciting right now, with all eyes on this special team. A team that has battled adversity all season, a team that has bonded together more than a team, they have bonded like a family on and off the ice and has been fun too watch this bonding all season. This team has been resilient all season and watching them in game two and game three, proves just how resilient they are, with an ugly performance in two, and a great performance in three. Would love to see this team finish mission sixteen, as not just for the reward for the players on a great season, but for the third time in the same season, the city of Boston can cue the Duck boats once again, for this type of celebration will never get old, especially with my favorite team.

” In team sports there is never an I, as it takes the whole team to work as one and become a true champion”

” The Stanley cup is the most prestigious and hardest trophy to win of all the sports, which makes hockey the coolest game on ice”

” To be a G. O. A. T. of your sport means that you are the Greatest Of All Time”

” Mission 16 in the game of hockey starts with the playoffs as you are on a mission to win 16 more games to be a true champion of the sport you play and love”

The Patriots got “Played” at Hard Rock Stadium




” Superman has the Kryptonite, as the Patriots have Miami stadium” 

                                                                                         *** Bowlingchef ***

 


             This season of the NFL, is one with many flops and turns  by each team. The team mostly in question here are the New England Patriots, as this is my home team and one that I have seen much worse from, than the last few years. I remember this team losing more then they won and the favorite quote year after year was, ” wait til next year”. Now this quote was used by all the Boston team fans, but look at the city now, as they are known for the many titles as “Titletown”, with the Patriots and the Red Sox leading the way. 

      

               Yesterday’s Patriots game…………. True it was a heart breaker, but with all seriousness, it was one of those plays that does and will rear it’s ugly head, on to any playing field, of any sport. Today within all the Sports medias, they are all going to be the ” Monday Quarterbacks”, they are all going to be chatting as if they are the experts and all else are second to them, what I say to them is, it is you and your drama that all the sports can do without, so let the players play, keep the drama to yourselves. 

                  Tom Brady is one of those Athletes that does not come along very often, so instead of trying to predict of his retirement, by being overly critical of each play, simply just sit back and enjoy the ride, for the ride will not last forever. It has been twenty years and counting, that Tom Brady has brought the New England Patriots from a team of, not even mentioned in the sports world, to a team of ” Champions”. Tom Brady and Bill Belichek are Winners and when one makes a mistake of calling for the wrong play, OMG!!! The World is going to end? They are human like you and I, they are going to make mistakes like you and I, it is when we correct our mistakes, that has us grow better and stronger moving forward on our path through this journey of life, with Bill and Tom making fewer mistakes over those twenty years, that has us all in the denial part of admitting to the seasons of New England Patriot football before the Belichek and Brady era. 

                    Sports is no different than any other aspect of our lives, there is no such thing as perfection, there will be mistakes made, the difference between the Patriots over the years, compared to other NFL teams, they knew how to correct their mistakes quickly, so they wouldn’t get in the way of their winning seasons. Those that are very successful in life, they to make mistakes as we do, just that they are the Belichek and the Brady’s of the real world, they quickly correct their mistakes, so they can move forward better and stronger, everyday throughout the journey of life. With this last mistake of guarding against the hail Mary and putting Gronk out there on Defense, yes I can see the theory of having someone with good hands and being tall to deflect and knock down the ball, they did this with success when Randy Moss was on the team, but with this changing NFL, you as well need to adapt and change with it, or become the Patriots of old, when the “L’s” would outweigh the “W’s”. To be a Champion in anything, you need to adapt and change, as the New England Patriots, under Bill Belichek, did this better than anybody, which is why they have five Superbowl victories out of eight trips, Tom Brady with five rings, going one beyond his Idol Joe Montana. Instead of hating on this team so quickly and bringing more unwanted drama too us, lets remember on key thing, ” In Bill and Tom we trust”. 

” Football is a team sport that is a chess match between the coaches, with the players and their talents, helping the coach make all the right moves, with an occasional over looked play, becoming the miracle play”

”   We all have that something that gets in the way, it gets frustrating, by staying true to who you are, we can overcome that something” 

           

New England Patriots……….( do your job)

TB12 the brand……… Tom Brady is one of those kind of Athletes that doesn’t come around all that often, much like Micheal Jordan in Basketball, or Bobby Orr in hockey, These Individuals defy the odds, rewrite the record books and come with more raw talent, then even they themselves are surprised by their greatness, but yet ask them of their greatness and they will never admit to any of their success, only praising their teammates, for helping them with their success.

Tom Brady may be the Quarter back and player for the New England Patriots, but he would be nothing without a great leader or Maestro of the orchestra, a person that is so brilliant in not just looking at football as a game, but taking it too the next level, always being three moves ahead of his opponents and treating the game on the field just like a chess game, with each position of the chess board being strategically placed, to keep that competitive advantage, plus making sure each of the players buy into the, ” Do your job” mentality.

Now you can’t have a great quarterback or a great coach, without a great Owner, someone who is just as dedicated and competitive as the coach and quarterback tandem. The Owner is where it all starts and not just an owner that invests in a team to make good on his investment, but an owner that turns his investment into a gold mine for many years to come, with many generations reaping the benefits and joy of his investment.

With Robert Kraft…….. Yes it is true he is a very successful Business man, yes he has a lot of wealth and can afford many exotic things, but he is also a man who is still in touch with where he has come from, he also had season tickets to the Patriots, back in a time where winning games were far and few between, so he knows through experience, just how we true Patriot fans have suffered til now. Bob Kraft is one of the greatest owners of all sports and as a business man, he has surrounded himself with the smartest of football minds, which has turned the New England patriots into a very successful organization.

The best move the Kraft’s have made was, bringing in Bill Belichek. This man has become one of the game of football’s all time best coaches and by best, I mean more like a genius in understanding the game inside the game. His philosophy to the game may seem high tech to most, but to those who understand, it is actually very simple like just, ” Do your job”. Now the so called sports Media may not like him or his press conferences, simply because they can’t get that much info from him, or made too look just as stupid, with each stupid question they ask him, but if you ask me? The so called sports Media totally gets what they deserve, as they try to look smarter than the smartest coach within the history of the NFL.

Then there is Brady? call him what you want, but there is no denying him the title of, ” The Greatest of all Time……….the G. O. A. T”. This is a guy that was drafted so far down in the draft, no other team wanted to give him a chance and seriously! look at him now, not too mention of just how jealous some players may be of him, to the point where they have to say fake things or make things up to try to knock him off his game? I got news for you!!!  When there is ice in your veins, it is very hard to be rattled, or to be taken out of focus, not too mention when you are as competitive as Tom Brady, you not only try to be as perfect as you can be, but you also look for perfection in all those around you. We have seen Brady lose it on the sidelines and the so called media try’s to spin it as Tom is far from a team player, Huh!!! If only they knew that this is the fuel that feeds his competitive fire, when things in the game aren’t going as planned, yes he may get a bit vocal, but this is only his competitiveness that is trying to light a spark underneath his teammates, so they can wake up and play as they have been coached during the long hard practices.

Say what you want of the New England Patriots, but what I say is, ever since Bob Kraft bought this team, he has not only made good on his investment, he has turned a sports franchise around, where the winning environment around town has become so infectious,  that the other other pro teams in town, are doing what they can in their sports, to be like the New England Patriots. Not everybody can be like the Patriots, just like their is only one Bob Kraft and I am happy that I can enjoy the fruits of his labor, while the Patriots keep winning not only games, but Championships year after year.

” What I say to the other teams is, ” if you want to be a champion” then step up to the plate and beat a champion”

” The competitive fire is within us all, but unless you unleash it, you will never experience being great at what you do”

” The great owner/the great coach/the great quarterback, call it what you want, but without these as the main ingredients, you have nothing to build greatness around you”

” Instead of hating on a champion, then step up to the plate and beat the champion”

” Say what you want of the Patriots but what I say is,  We are experiencing history before our eyes, so sit back and enjoy the ride while it lasts”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

True Leadership qualities……

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

What makes a great Leader? We all tend to link being a leader with power and control, we get caught up in the mix that, Leader’s have to be in high positions, like, the President of a country, a CEO of a corporate company, or maybe an Owner of a sports team to name a few. Some of the greatest Leaders do so quietly with no fan fare, or looking for any kind or recognition.

Everybody has their own kind of Leadership ways, just that we don’t give ourselves enough credit for the way we Lead, we also don’t tap into our souls enough and try to find a Leadership role that best suits ourselves. Not all of us are suited to be a true leader and not all of us can be a Leader, as in the old saying, ” to many chiefs spoil the tribe” or ” to many Chef’s ruin the soup”. You don’t find a true Leader, as True Leader’s simply rise to the role with their actions and not their words.

Look at a guy like Tom Brady, the best Quarter Back in the history of the NFL. He doesn’t look to be more powerful or above the rest of his Teammates, he just shows up in practice and works hard each and every day, then executes that hard work on Game day. He shows his Leadership on the field, while he brings his team into the lead, to move forward with a “W” in the win column. All his Teammates adore him, cause he is so humble and approachable by all. Tom also gives advice to his Teammates, instead of saying ” do it this way or you won’t touch the football”. Okay it is true you may see him loud and yelling on the side lines on game day, but he does so only to wake up the team, so they can execute better, giving the team a better chance of winning the game.

A true leader leads by example, without losing the respect of those they try to lead. Raymond Bourque of the Boston Bruins was another great Leader, even though he wore the “C” on his jersey, it didn’t mean anything to him, as he showed up everyday practiced and played hard, so when his Teammates saw that, they to practiced and played hard, making the whole team a better team moving forward. Ray was a quiet guy that stayed out of the limelight, but with his actions on the ice, that is what spoke much louder than any words at all. Bobby Orr was the same way as he also let his actions speak for himself, they didn’t want to be singled out as a special player and they always spoke of the team/ put the team before themselves all the time.

True Leader’s never look for any fame or recognition, they never look to be more powerful than or even try to have all the power over the rest. A true Leader at the end of the day goes home like you and I and does his chores, like the rest of us. A Leader that we all take for granted and never give enough credit to, are our own parent’s. these Individuals help you grow in many ways, they show you by example on how to treat other’s, they guide you as you walk your path of this journey through life, they don’t just love you deeply and they don’t just quietly lead you on your path, they teach you all they know, as they to were led by their Parent’s, as they walked their paths through this journey of life. Parent’s don’t look for any recognition or any spotlight, they never look for any rewards, all they want is to lead you into prosperity, so you can be the best you can be, as you walk your path through this journey of life.

 

” A true Leader is a rare breed and never looks for any recognition or fame”

” A real and true Leader, leads by example and never pushes his power on to another”

” Leadership is never about power and control over other’s, as a true Leader knows how to make others better moving forward”

” True Leaders let their actions speak more loudly than themselves, making all around them feel even more special then the Leader himself”

 

The Patriot way of doing your job

gillette

The New England Patriots are a football Franchise, that play a game of football, which besides the physical nature of the game, it is simply just a game of strategy with the best strategy on that day winning the game. The strategy part of football is similar to the board game of Chess, the object to football is reaching the end zone of the opponent and in Chess reaching the other end of the board, conquering the opponents King, There are a series of moves or plays that happen in between, which makes it quite simple, each player or Chess piece has a job to do and when each do their jobs, that is the team that reigns supreme on that day,

The New England Patriots have been good for so long, because they have a coach that understands the game as good or better then most within the game today, in chess you would call him a Wizard. he not only understands the game, he also knows how to motivate each player, knows when they are on the up swing or down swing of their careers and he flat out will out coach any coach in the game.

Now you have this guy named Tom Brady, which by the way is the best Quarterback in the game. Tom didn’t get this way by chance, he with his great work ethnic, made himself the best he can be, he practices and studies film as much as anybody in the game. Tom has also become a great leader of his Teammates showing by example, not too mention he is one of the most competitive guys in the NFL and he definitely likes to win more than he does losing.

Now it takes a lot more than a great coach or players to become successful in the NFL, you also need a great Owner that wants his investment to reap big rewards, there is no better Owner of all sports better than Bob Kraft. The best day in the history of the New England Patriots was the day Bob bought the team. Bob Kraft is a great business man and he did what any business man would of done, surrounded himself with the best of the best football minds he knew. He started with Coach Parcels which had brought them to a Superbowl, they lost that one, then they went out and signed Bill Belichek, which they never looked back and the rest is history.

I have been through the years that the Patriots would only win one game a year, but now these Patriots are rewriting all the record books and from a fan of long standing, what a ride it has been, True there has been some changes through the glory years, with some of the coaching staff and players, but the two common denominators have been, Bill Belichek and Tom Brady, these two guys have become the best Coach\Quarterback tandem in the history of the NFL and we here in New England are witnessing it first hand. Yes your going to have your Hecklers and Hater’s, the Yankee’s and the Canadians went through it in their hey day, simply because others were jealous of their winning all the time, this is what being successful brings unfortunately, The team of the New England Patriots are a Franchise that when you look deeply into what you see, you can clearly see that, they were not that successful, but with hard work, some of the right changes, they now have become a successful Franchise, that we all can look up to and strive to become.

The path that the New England Patriots took is nothing different than the path we all take through this journey of life, it only differs from the amount of hard dedicated work you put in along the path, the harder you work, the easier it becomes and the more you practice the work, the better you become along your path of this journey. Nothing is easy and nothing just comes to you without practice, if we only just follow the Patriot way, just maybe we all can achieve the same success that they have received over their glory years. In many ways sports and life are different, but in many other ways, its the sports that help us, become better and stronger as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” The New England Patriot way of ” Do your job” can also be our way through this journey of life:

” With hard work and practice we all can achieve success at anything we do”

” Chess is a game of strategy, just like football with the best strategy winning on that day”

” Practice is how we become better and stronger so we can walk our paths easier making our lives even better”

 

Greatness Personified………

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

” Greatness is within us all, but unfortunately only a few achieve true greatness”

 

Last nights Superbowl was an Epic event on so many levels, not too mention being one of the best Super bowls of my lifetime so far. Okay it is true I am a New England Patriot fan,  it is also true that I like many other true fans have gone through many seasons, with our beloved Pats only winning one game a year, so it is safe to say that, I am not the only one enjoying the ride for the last 17 seasons. With all the Hater’s hating on this team only shows what greatness brings and the New York Yankees back in their hay day, have also been through what the Patriots are going through now, which is where the nickname the ” Evil Empire” came from. What I say to all the Hater’s out there is, ” if you truly want to be a Champion, than step up to the plate and beat a true Champion”, with Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons almost did just that.

Tom Brady and Bill Belichek just solidified their greatness last night with this great come back win, some may say that the Falcons choked, but to the real football fan, this game was won a team that never gave up, no matter of how big the odds were as this game moved forward. This game was won by a team that never lost faith in their selves and their teammates, which kept hope alive for each and every one of them, when there is faith, you will always have hope and with these two, the confidence runs high throughout the entire team. Plus with the slogan of ” do your job”, the task at hand never really got too big for them to handle.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, we all also go through the good as well as the bad, with what I learned of Tom Brady’s Mom last night, I couldn’t stop my eyes from watering and to think she was at her first game watching her son……. the tears filled up my eyes and my heart became warm with love. with all the chemo she has been through, she was strong enough to go watch her son in person, which made this story so much bigger than the game of football itself. Tom Brady is more than just a football Quarterback, he is a Human, walking a path through this journey of life, just like all of us as well. The biggest difference between Tom Brady and most of us is, he never gives up, he never loses faith in himself and with this faith, never loses hope that he can achieve Greatness, plus as a Human and with all his Mom has been through, Tom Brady stays focused on the prize and the true prize isn’t each Championship ring he receives, the true prize is each chance he gets to spend good quality time with his Mom at her time of need. This was the story within the game, this is the story that drives Tom Brady to Greatness, this is a story and a message to the rest of us that, we to can achieve the same Greatness if we want it bad enough, we just have to stay focused on the true prize and not the prize surrounded by drama or false reality. We all walk a path through this journey of life and when we do it correctly, when we stay focused on the true prize and when we never give up, never lose faith, which brings us all the hope we need to move forward better and stronger, so we all can share our love within, with each other, as we then walk this journey in peace and happiness.

 

” True greatness is within us all, we just have to focus and never give up, so the greatness will shine over us all”

” Last nights Super bowl game was beyond a great game when you look deeply into the game”

” With Faith there will always be Hope and when you have them both, the confidence will drive you to never give up no matter of the odds”

 

 

Being Humble is totally within us all

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

” I tell you, the latter went home justified, not the former, for whoever exalts himself will be humbled and the one who Humbles  himself will be exalted”

 

*** LK 18:14

 

The stream flows over it’s obstacle creating a small falls, as the water becomes Humbled and keeps flowing along its path. We also over come obstacles as we walk our paths of this journey through life, but somewhere over the obstacle we lose who we truly are and our humbleness becomes lost deep within our soul, then as we continue over the obstacle without being Humble, we will never be Exalted for our actions moving forward.

To truly be Humbled you must never compare yourself toward others nor, put yourself above anyone as well, when you simply walk your path to the best of your ability, without comparing or putting yourself above, you will find that you will be exalted and Good will surround you, as Jesus will notice and without telling you, he will help you be Humbled and exalted along your path of this journey.

We the People as we walk our paths, are the ones that bring the drama to our lives, simply by the way of our actions toward one another, When we hurt real pain, instead of understanding the why and where of the pain, we will dump it on each other, for one way to escape the clutches of the pain and then bury within ourselves, our true selves, for a way to move forward in this journey, with no further pain and when we do this, we then lose the ability to be humble and then we can’t be exalted from anything.

When we do our jobs to the best of our ability and when we practice our craft, we then get really good at what we do, then others around us will either become jealous, as they try to be like you and fail, or they will take notice and show you much respect. When we become jealous is only because we have given up and don’t want to work as hard with the practice, as we never give up then we learn that we to can be as good, but to be Humble we must never compare, because you may have two people working on the same craft, but when you compare you will never be Humble, then never get exalted for what you do.

There may seem to be so much within this journey of life, but seriously it is all within us and the ability comes down to how we walk our paths, or how we never give up, so we then can walk with confidence and be better and stronger moving forward. When we are Humbled within our lives, then the exalted part comes in the way of, us walking our paths peacefully, while being happy throughout this journey of life.

 

” We the People are the ones bringing the drama into this Society with our actions and through the drama we will never become humbled or exalted on anything”

” When we work hard through the practice, we then can get good at our craft and through the good comes being Humble and exalted leaving us with confidence”

” Tom Brady is very good at his craft and the hard work has given him respect and dignity throughout, while he stays humble and is exalted by those around him”

 

Love, Respect,Rewarding,Hospitality

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

We climb mountains like this, not just because they are there, or maybe simply to pass the time? We climb mountains like this because we Love the getting outside part, we Love the adventure part of the journey and we also Love what our Reward is, when we reach the Summit of the mountain. While Hiking our journey to the Summit, we quickly learn to Respect the mountain and the trail for which we climb, we Respect everything around us like the plant life and the animals that may cross our path. Then we come to realize all the Hospitality of all the other Hiker’s that we meet along the trail, with just a quick simple hello and have a great day, by an Individual that before then, you never knew existed as we walk our path through this journey of life.

I just attended an event which very much had these same traits like, Love, Respect, Reward and the Hospitality. This event was for a sport that I very much enjoy not just for the competitiveness but for the game, this sport is Ten Pin Bowling. Bowling to some may be just a night out, or maybe a game for which to pass the time, Bowling to me is the Social interaction with others, making Friends with others that if it weren’t for the game, maybe you would of never met these People? It is also the fun you have competing with other’s, now some Leagues may be more competitive than others, or maybe you are good enough to compete in some Tournaments? The sport of Bowling teaches us all that, even through the competitiveness, we can still get along and have fun together, playing a game that we all, Love, while we Respect the game and each other, earn many Rewards and accolades, While we simply have fun and share much Hospitality with each other.

Now with all the Crap we see around us today and what the liberal Bias Media would want us to believe so they can sell their print and make money on our account, there are still good people around us and we can still enjoy each others company, without the word Hate even being a thought in anybody’s mind. Even through the competitive part of the game, when the game is over you can still shake hands regardless of the out come. The Hospitality part of Bowling is very seldom talked about, but yet is the part of the game that makes it the best sport out there. The Love and Respect that is shared by each bowler, is the biggest reward within the sport of Bowling. Unlike other sports, when an Athlete reaches a certain point, they lose the Love and respect, the Hospitality becomes non existent and the rewards then never come, which then makes us very Bitter and Hostile toward each other.

This Love, Respect, Reward and Hospitality will never die, only we as the people of this Society and the actions we take, makes it very difficult to truly see the good of these traits, makes it very difficult to receive any kind of a reward, as the Hospitality and the kindness will never be shared by we the people, as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

 

” Love is within us all and much easier to share with all those around us, the hate is learned from our surroundings and harder to spread among us”

” Respect is a trait that when we acknowledge and care for one another, then the feeling within us fills us with great warmth”

” Rewards comes from all our hard work, without the work there are no Rewards”

Hospitality quite simply comes from us being nice to each other, as we share the Love within us with each other”

The PowerBall Mania…

 

Power ball is a lottery that is combined from 44 of the 50 states here in America, This Wednesday night will be the highest jackpot in the history of all lotteries on this planet Earth at an estimated 1.3 billion……… Yes that’s a “B” for Billion. As each draw for the last few weeks has brought zero winners and with the jackpot piling up, this has become huge chatter everywhere you go. Everybody asking a simple question of each other, ” What would you do with a Billion dollars”?

The true answer to this question is quite simple, it is okay to dream cause in all likelihood, these kind of jackpots won’t happen to all of us throughout this Society. True someone or maybe a group of someones will win this and yes their lives will be changed forever.

Whoever thinks their life will stay the same, simply has no idea of what they will truly do with a large sum of money as this. 1.3 billion dollars is a large sum of money, but that is the gross amount, what a lot of people don’t want to admit to is the net sum of that amount. I am no Mathematician but after Uncle Sam and the State in which you live takes their cut, you are now left with in the neighborhood of 450,000,000 million. This is still a life changing amount and an amount that can either make you very happy or very sad, simply because people will be coming out of the woodwork, saying they are your friends and you will lose who your true friends are. You will also if you don’t pay attention, get lost within the clouds of your judgements and lose sight of who you truly are. You will start buying everything you always wanted, but could never afford it before. We all walk a path through this journey of life, it is not about all the material things we accumulate,  it is totally about how we live our lives, as we walk these paths through this journey we are all on.

1.3 billion or 450,000,000 million is very much a life altering amount for anybody, especially if it comes to you all at once. Nobody is ever truly prepared for this kind of money either, which is why you need to plan your plan, than work that plan without getting away from the plan. I am not a Financial planner, nor do I pretend to be one one, but for me I would hire one, to help guide me on my new path along this journey of life, with the new found wealth I was fortunate to win in this, the biggest of all lotteries in the history of this Planet.

Any amount of money that you should be fortunate enough to come into will change you in many ways, which makes it even more important that we never lose sight of who we truly are, we never get lost within the clouds of our judgements. When we do get lost within the clouds, we then become someone we are not and then we portray this fake self, which is nothing but living a lie of ourselves, towards all those around us and then we get so caught up in the lie, we find that we lose sight of how to get out of the lie, then we get left with one option and that is to continue the lie, to which we become very unhappy throughout the rest of our journey, as we walk our paths in our lives.

Now it would be nice if we could all be very wealthy and with this wealth comes being very happy, but unfortunately with wealth it isn’t true happiness and true happiness is felt within and not  from any amount of money. Within this Society we may come to believe that wealth brings great happiness, only because within this Society we have all become greedy and self centered to everything around us. This is reality and a reality that is very sad, but the only way for each of us to truly change this reality, is for each one of us throughout Mankind, to simply share the love within us all. with each other, as we all walk our paths throughout this journey of life, everyday of our existence.

 

” Power ball is a lottery that has us all dreaming a fantasy, it is okay to dream but we need to dream reality, in order for the fantasy to be all our reality’s”

” any sum of money that may come our way is a life changing amount, as it will have us think in ways we never thought we would think before”

” The odds of all of us within this Society being a winner of any amount of money are so great, that if we all held our breathe there would be no more Mankind to walk their paths of this journey through life”

” True happiness is felt deep within our hearts and souls just like the love we all have within us, when we lose these feelings then we have become someone we truly are not”

 

Good decision/bad decision…Hmm!!!

story idea

The decision for Bill Belichek to kick away the ball at the start of overtime in last nights game, totally lies on him to do so and with his track record over the last fifteen years as the Coach of the New England Patriots, who are we to second guess his decision?

These pictures here are of two totally different paths, just like in life you also have different paths in sports to get to where you want to go. with the way the Offense played last night, compared to the way the defense played, clearly was part of the way Bill made his decision and all these theories we are hearing today, totally lie with the sports media, in trying to stir up as much drams as they can, so they can have a job to stir the drama with. Bill has brought four Championships here to new England over his tenure here, why should we stop trusting him now? Even Tom Brady came out and said the defense played better and he is the common denominator in all the different teams that Bill has coached here.

Talk about the media creating drama in sports, there was a report of Peyton Manning using HGH in the year 2011 after his neck surgery, which this report was later recanted when the reporter came out and said he was wrong, but now the seed of drama is planted and a very hard seed to dig up like the weeds in your green grass. Tom Brady came out in total defense of Peyton, as he is going through the same seed of drama with the deflate gate crap and can totally feel what Peyton is going through. This is, what is wrong with our Society of today, here you have two of the best Quarterbacks in the history of the NFL and there are some out there through jealousy, that will try to take them down, instead of sitting back and enjoying the show that they are putting on, year after year.

True we here in New England may not of liked the call to kick the ball away and pass up the chance to end the game with the offense scoring a touchdown like the Jets did, but when you sit back and review the game inside the game, you can see clearly why Bill made this decision, as the defense out played the offense in last nights game, it is just that it didn’t work out for the Patriots like in years past and with all the injuries to key players, shows that even the mighty Patriots fall Victim to the bug of an injury ridden season, like all other teams throughout the NFL.

With Bill Belichek and Tom Brady, the Patriots will always be in the talk of which teams will go to the Superbowl, but when key players around Tom fall to the injury bug, makes it that much harder to get there and that much harder a pill to swallow, for all the fans around New England to accept. The legacy of Bill and Tom here in New England is winning, but without all the key supporting players around them makes it that much harder to overcome adversity and keep the legacy of winning alive, I can say I was disappointed at the call also, but when I looked at the game inside the game, I clearly saw the reason why he made that call and totally respected Bill for making the call. #inbillwetrust Let us all here in New England always trust in Bill as his track record speaks for itself.

 

” just as in life, sports has different paths to follow to get to your true destination, hard work and determination shows you the true path to follow”

” Decisions are made everyday in life as well as sports, just that all the decisions made don’t always work in your favor”

” The New England Patriots with Bill and Tom will always be considered a favorite in the NFL, its the right supporting cast around them that keep them one of the favorites”
