The Thrill of Victory……or the Agony of Defeat

IMG_20150104_124946

To honor the late Stuart Scott and to pray for all those who suffer this dreaded disease, plus with Breast cancer awareness this month, I thought this great quote could  rise once again. Stuart worked for the sports station ESPN for a long time, before this dreaded disease, finally took him from us. This quote by him was said during the yearly Espy awards, which he was honored with the lifetime achievement award. What makes this quote so great is, the fact you can tweak a few words and the quote takes on a whole new meaning.

Take out the first line and replace it with, ” To win playing the sport for which you love”, now you have a quote that will always live throughout the test of time, There are a lot of good quotes out there, what makes a quote great is, the tweaking of a word or two, giving the quote a whole new meaning, to inspire us as long as we walk a path through this journey of life.

Nobody ever wants to go through the Agony of defeat, but in able to experience the thrill of victory, you first have to be able to lose correctly, then you can respect the win, with a feeling of  pride.  True competition is missing within the World of sports today, it has been replaced with the feeling of ” I play for me so I can be rich” Yes sports today has become ” the world of Greed”, as the loyalty for players sticking with one team, just isn’t there anymore, then you have the owner’s of the teams dishing out big bucks to bring in certain players with good talent, so they can win Championships. True winning of Championships goes a lot deeper than buying a team, true winning of Championships gives you a feeling that is second to none, when it comes to having pride at what you do and when you learn to lose correctly, you then respect the winning, all day everyday.

With all the Hatred and the Ugliness that has consumed us all today, maybe a little theory here. that could be quite possibly the culprit of all the negativity? Sports is supposed to unite us as one, so we can be a Champion at whatever we want to do, but instead of uniting us, it is dividing us, with all the greed there is to be had, for playing a simple game, of whatever sport you chose to play. Then when you win multiple Championships, now others become jealous and will hate, just because you win all the time, now when you play a sport you love and you become great at it, others then get jealous and whine at every chance they get.  Is this fair treatment of each other? Absolutely not, Although if you want to try to be the best you can at whatever sport you play, then work hard, in becoming the best you can within the sport you love.

There is only one player today that plays his sport for the love of the game, has true loyalty for the team of which he plays for and isn’t in it just to get a fat pay check, Tom Brady is that player, he has only played for one team and brought that team five championships. so instead of other teams trying to dethrone the champs, they then take the easy way out and drive a wedge of hatred into the sport, which then divides further all who play the sport.

Sports when played the right way, brings us all together in Unity, players who play a sport for the love of the game, instead of the fat paycheck, then become role models to the young that watch them and then, try very hard to be like their role models, so they also can play a sport for which they love.

 

” The agony of defeat is what gives you the good feeling of the thrill of victory”

” Some quotes are a dime a dozen, but a great quote will always be priceless”

” Play a sport for the love of the game and unite all that are around you, instead of being consumed by greed and dividing the sport you play”

” Sports is supposed to be called the great unifier, but instead they are known as the great divider with all the hate and the ugliness”

The sun shines over the City of Chicago

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

With the Chicago Cubs winning the World Series last night and being seventy one years since they have even been on the big stage, plus not winning it for one hundred and eight years, this win is bigger than even the sport of baseball itself.

They say it was the curse of the Goat? I understand the whole story of a person bringing their pet Goat to the games, then being told not to bring the Goat anymore, but seriously, you think a Goat had to do with a team not winning a Championship in over a century? Same thing with the Great Babe Ruth and the trade that had him leaving the Boston Red Sox, to the New York Yankees, then the Red Sox not winning a World Series in Eighty six years? We all can believe what we want to, as we are all unique to each other with our own minds, but to make an excuse over a curse for not winning a Championship, I think we need look deeply into what we see, instead of making an excuse for everything around us.

The Fans of the Chicago Cubs is what this win is all about, as it was the Fans that were caught between the team and the Ownership of the team and being being deprived of what other teams and their Fans have accomplished. It is the Fan that shows up. pays a fee, so they can watch their team win, it is the Fan that roots very loudly for their favorite players of that team, but when the Owner’s don’t pay for the right players (for which the fan pays for), now the Fan has no one to root for. Yes your going to have those die hard Fans that no matter what, will still pay and root for a team, even if they don’t truly know of who they are rooting for. Instead you have the Owner’s becoming more greedy and taking advantage of the die hard Fan, just to line their pockets with more money, so they can live their plush exotic lifestyles.  When you don’t spend the money wisely and get the right player’s for the team and for the Fans who have been loyal to you, you will be the next Chicago Cubs or the Boston Red Sox.

When you want to model yourself after a good Owner, you need to look no further than Bob Kraft of the New England Patriots. He was a Fan of the team before he was an Owner and when he became Owner, he then put the best Management around him to build a great team. then through the Management they went out and got the right players that not only fit the Patriot way, but that would gel together and give the Fans what they have paid for, as they spend a lot of money to enjoy a game on any given Sunday. Now with the Patriots and the last fifteen years, you can clearly see what building a great team will do, as they win more than they lose and through winning, makes it fun to not only play the game, but makes it fun to pay and watch the game as well. Now with the winning part, you will also gain some Hater’s that will try to bring you down with words, this is just that words……..That show nothing but hatred of their own team, cause their Owner’s don’t step up to the plate and reward their Fans with a winning team.

Yes I do congratulate the Chicago Cubs and their player’s for winning the World series, but I congratulate their Fans even more, as now they can see what winning is all about and how winning and sports can affect a whole region for the better. Players like Jon Lester and David ross who are the older guys on the team and have won it all before, both came from the Red Sox, as did Theo Epstein the General Manager also, these are the guys that brought their experience and winning nature with them, as they infected the Fans around them throughout Chicago. Theo was the one that was brought in by the owner’s to give the Fans what they have needed for a long time and finally reward the Fans with this great victory and not just a victory, but a World Series Championship.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, some may get a chance to bask in the glory of this journey, while others simply just walk their path in the clouds of their judgments. Sports and our everyday lives when they come together in harmony, like last night in Chicago, helps us all have a look at the glory part of this journey and can help us all become better and stronger moving forward. True everything has to line up completely, but when they do it is the most beautiful part of this journey through life and is what makes us all walk with confidence, to be better and stronger along our paths throughout this journey.

 

” The Chicago Cubs have finally found success in the sport of baseball, as the Fans have finally been rewarded for their time and money spent”

” This team of the 2016 World series Champs the Cubs, will be forever enshrined in the history of the city of Chicago”

” They say winning cures all, but you can’t win without the right players around you”

” It takes a knack to get the right players for your team, as Theo Epstein and Bill Belichek have perfected that knack”

 

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”

Oppression has no boundaries

Creek

” The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed”

 

*** Luke 4:18

 

” This stream flows along it’s path within it’s boundaries, as it shares all the land around it with all the other Vegetation”

 

*** BowlingChef***

 

Within this Society of today, the ones that are truly Oppressed move forward quietly as to not bring attention to themselves, yet there are others using a sport that they play as their platform and then disrespect a flag, that men and woman have fought hard to protect, so these Individuals can make their millions playing their sport, is this really a good way to voice your concerns? Our Military of the past and the present, have fought for our flag, so we can be free here to do what we want and travel wherever we want to go. These men and woman of the Military are made up of our Mother’s, Father’s, Brother’s and Sister’s, some never made it back home, others came home but never the same as they left to fight for the flag, then as they come home to re join Society with us, they become neglected and disrespected by the rest of us throughout this Society. These Veterans are the one true oppressed people of this Society, cause they worked hard so we can be free and safe in this Country, as the ones that think they are oppressed, don’t work and expect the rest of us to tale care of them, as they become even lazier throughout this Society.

There are many that are oppressed within this Society, but they work hard to get out of the oppression, so they can be as vibrant and happy like many others. The ones that bicker and complain become lazy and never work hard at doing anything of value in their lives, then they try to disrupt the lives of those around them, by doing stupid things and forcing their opinions on those around them. Oppression is what you make of it and if your not willing to reach out, lend a helping hand to others at their time of need, then I blame we the people for letting this Oppression become bigger than it really needs to be.

There are some that cry they are oppressed, but do nothing to help themselves, they do nothing to get out of the oppression, then they rely on others to not help them out of the oppression, but to disrupt the lives of others around them. ” God helps those who help themselves”, so when there is no hope of any help, only means you have lost the faith in yourself as well as in God also. Don’t rely on others to over step the boundaries in a Society, as it is like the stream and if the stream over stepped it’s boundaries, then all the Vegetation around it dies as it becomes flooded.

Before you take a knee in protest, really know what you are protesting, I understand that there is oppression going on around us but, this oppression has affect on a lot more than one kind of person in this Society, to take a knee before a game to not pay tribute to a flag of this Countries colors, to which many have fought and died, so we can be free and you can earn millions from the sport where you are taking the knee, this is not a good idea and shows that people need to re think the way to protest. By taking a knee you are doing nothing but showing disrespect of those who fought hard, died and came home not of the same person defending the flag, so we all can be free to be anything of which we truly want to be. Find another way in which to protest that won’t show any disrespect of anything or anyone around you, Let’s all be a little smarter with our actions, so we all can walk our paths in peace, while being truly happy throughout this journey of life.

 

” Oppression comes from relying heavily on others to work on our behalf, without we ourselves working hard to get out of the Oppression”

” oppression is what you make of it and with no faith there will be no hope of getting out of the Oppression”

” Many have died fighting for the red, white and blue so the rest of us can be free in this country, let’s not disrespect their spirit by taking a knee in it’s honor”

 

The days journey on the water

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

As I grew up I always paddled a Canoe, but this time I had a chance to paddle a Kayak and let me say it was more fun than I ever imagined. I paddled all over this pond on this day, going in and out of all the inlets, exploring all that I could within the daylight of this day, watching all the Bald Eagles fly over head and a couple Herring also flew over head. a small flock of Canada Geese swimming along with no worries slowing them down, taking pictures of my days journey, documenting all that I explored, Then each little Island that I came to, I would pull up to the shore of the Island and get out of the Kayak to walk around and enjoy the peace and serenity of the Island. Now as low as I was to the water, the views that I saw were every bit as good as if I was in a bigger boat, that had a motor and moved through the water faster.

The one thing that this Kayak was better than a bigger boat was, the negotiating of the stumps as I got closer to the shores at every stop. This pond has a river that travels through it and the pond became what it is, by the Hydro plant that dammed and flooded the area for the use of creating electric from the water of the pond. All these stumps and logs that washed up on the shores of the pond, were so petrified from the water, that they were smoother than any man could do with a sander or a planer, it was like the drift wood you find as you walk along any beach that you may walk. Walking along the shores of any beach, has a beauty of its own, but to journey through the pond paddling a Kayak along your journey, now this is what true exploring is all about.

The point of the Kayak was pointing in the direction I was going, making it easy to navigate my way through the water, with my arms and shoulders doing all the work, in order to move from place to place. To some it may seem like to much work to paddle a Kayak, but it really wasn’t as it was more fun exploring, as the work didn’t seem like work at all. True a bigger boat with a motor would of had me move through the water faster to explore more, but time I had plenty of as I was having more fun getting to the next destination within the pond and exploring everything on my way through the pond.

The Native Americans used Canoe’s to navigate through the water and fish for their meals, they had no Kayaks back then, but if they did have Kayaks? They to would of had much more fun as I did, negotiating through the water of the pond. Okay maybe they wouldn’t of been able to carry much supplies, as the Kayak had little room to work with, but with the Kayak being lighter, they would of negotiated the water a bit faster from place to place. I can see certain members of the Tribe paddling through the water in a Kayak, as they shouted to the others on land ” Tatanka”, which in their tongue means ” buffalo”, as they warned them of their chosen animal, which for them was Spiritual Inspiration, food, clothing and shelter.

The Kayak was a great idea to negotiate the pond and all its inlets, while moving around all the stumps near the shores of the inlets. Then as you got into the narrow parts where it turned into the river with some fast running rapids, now your talking even more fun until you have to turn around and go back up the rapids, which was a bit more work. None the less the Kayak was a great toy to have while exploring and having fun and enjoying the great scenery along your journey on the water, then the plus was watching the great Bald Eagles fly over head.

 

” The Native Americans might of had Canoes, but for me the Kayak was so much fun”

” The difference between the Canoe and the Kayak is space, as you can carry more with a Canoe”

Tatanka is the Indian word for Buffalo, they used this animal for spiritual inspiration, food clothes and shelter”

” The Bald Eagle may be a protected bird and the symbol of America, but this bird is awesome to watch float through the sky with the greatest of ease”

” The Eagle and the Bear may be the best Fisherman of all the Species, as they just scoop their claws in the water and out pops their daily meal and they make it look so easy”

 

Keep spreading this message forever

1398913762364

 

Time to remember and spread this message throughout this Society once again. Martin Richard was a young vibrant and full of life eight year old boy, when he was taken from us at the Boston Marathon Bombing, he might of been eight years old, but he was mature beyond his years, spreading this message to those around him. This message is quite simple and really won’t need any extra work on all our parts, all we need to do is love one another as we love ourselves, get back in touch with our true feelings and emotions, while we share our true empathy that is within us all, with each other. Let’s truly Honor this young boy, as we all share this message with each other, not just by saying to one another, but by truly showing it in action toward one another.

This Society we are all a part of, is so full of ugliness that, it clearly shows just how broken this Society truly is. A Society will flow when the People of the Society will flow with each other, so we all can flow together on this journey through life, this includes fixing all our issues, so we can get back to living in Peace, while our happiness flows throughout. Instead of dancing around the issues of why this Society is broken, or simply trying to move forward like nothing affects us, we first have to recognize what is wrong, then fix what is wrong, so we then can truly fix what is needed, then we all can move forward better and stronger.

This message of ” No more hurting People…… Peace” by Martin Richard, is a powerful message, that can help us all, if we only read it deeply, then put it to action, with our actions. If a little eight year old boy can write this, than why can’t we all put it to action, by sharing our empathy that is deep within us all, when we are in touch with our true feelings and don’t suppress them deep inside, it is easy to share our empathy with each other.

This ugliness around us gets blown up even further when the Propaganda Media takes it all as a story and twists it to fit their agendas, create more unwanted drama, just so they can line their pockets with all the money they bring in as we watch it with all the commercials, that pay big dollars to advertise on their network. It is all one big Vicious circle, that we all get caught up in, then get lost within the clouds of our judgments.

We walk our paths of this journey through life, not so we all can live through all the ugliness, not so we all have to be part of all this drama but quite simply, so we all can live among each other in Peace, then be happy at all we do, along our paths of this journey though life.

 

” No more hurting People…..Peace are great words by Martin Richards, that needs to strongly be shared by all”

” A broken Society starts with the People within it, as they then work together to fix all that is wrong”

” If a young man can write the perfect words, than why can’t we all take note and live within the perfect world around us”

 

A Presidential Race like no other

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

The Presidential race of 2016, has so many twists and turns, it is hard to keep up to them, let alone all the plot twists. After the first day of the DNC one word comes to mind, “Hypocrisy”. Hillary Clinton wants to be the first woman President so bad, that she clearly does not think before she speaks, she will say whatever we want to hear so she can get our vote, then once in office do nothing like when she was a Senator. She really has said nothing yet, except for bashing Donald Trump in any way she can, She like Bernie Sanders is promising a lot of free stuff, but seriously!!! Who is going to pay for all this free stuff? She complains of this wall that Donald Trump wants to build to protect the Citizens of the U.S.Well what about the wall with armed guards on the other side of Mexico, protecting them from Freeloaders? It is okay for them but not for us? As far as Foreign Policy, she has collected so much from the Arab Countries, that she would never go against them, so we can forget about fighting ISIS, which means that they will be welcome in this Country to do their sick and twisted acts, although News Flash for you…….. they are already here on Obama’s watch. Everything we disagree with Obama on, will then become the status quo under Hillary, the National Debt….. let’s just say we all will have to work til we leave this journey through life, with no chance to enjoy our Golden Years.

Senator Warren on the other hand has become the pit bull for the Clinton’s, she is doing nothing but bash Donald Trump, when she should be in her office, working with the other Senator’s, trying to fix this mess and fix this Society, that is totally broken under the watch of President Obama. Our Government officials have become so out of touch, they don’t even know what true reality is anymore. Term limits? there should be term limits set, just like the office of the President, so the Career Politician doesn’t get too comfy in the chair of which they sit, of the office we vote them into. The Corruption is so bad and the lies being said everyday are so great, that you can’t tell when they are actually telling the truth. Senator Warren talks of Trump making big money in Real Estate through the 90’s when the market was low, but yet she conveniently doesn’t tell us of her money making in Real Estate through the same time frame.  The Hypocrisy is so bad within our Government, they themselves don’t even realize they are doing it.  To our Politicians it is just a game, to which the loser of the game is always we the hard working People throughout this Country.

There is an old saying, ” don’t step on another man’s shoeshine, well I think they have a shortage of Shoe shine Boys and this Political Correction among us? Lets just say….. it to needs to go, I get the fact we need to help each other prosper, but if we only showed more Empathy and love for one another, which is already within us, then we wouldn’t need this political Correction making us all weak, we wouldn’t be afraid to speak and truly help each other, without the fear of offending someone, then all the lies within the Government will stop, because now they are being held responsible to simply do their jobs they were voted in to do. Political Correction has taken away the art of handling the truth, instead we say nice things to your face, then when you turn around, insert the knife deep within your back.

I am sorry but nobody takes responsibility for their actions anymore and this needs to change so we all can walk our paths of this journey in peace everyday. Stop this walking on egg shells around each other and be totally truthful with each other, so we all can fix our own issues, which will then lead to fixing the issues of this Society, have you ever heard of ” constructive criticism”? this is a way for us all to help each other, but within this Political Correction Society we are in, constructive criticism will never exist and we all will forever…. never be held accountable for our actions, never be able to fix any issue that comes across our path through this journey of life.

 

” Political Correction only has us walking on egg shells around each other, where constructive criticism will have us help each other to be better and stronger moving forward”

‘ This Presidential election this time around is one big joke, time we hold each other accountable for our actions, to fix what we need to fix, instead of bashing each other with Hypocrisy”

” If your against something one day, then why be for it the next”

That is on big Bird……

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

This bird is known as a Herring, it is one of the biggest birds I have seen as it stands pretty tall, with a wing span just as big. You notice how it sort of blends in with it’s surroundings, at first glance it kind of looked like one of the tree stumps around it.

As we look at this bird, think about all the different kinds of birds out there, you don’t see them squawking and calling each other a ” Racist”? This is only done by us the Humans within all the other creatures that walk this planet Earth. We the people of this Society are our own worst Enemy, we would rather bicker and fight each other, instead of walking our paths of this journey through life peacefully and happily.

Simply just look at our so called Leaders of this Country, they can’t even have a friendly disagreement, without either fighting with each other, or just clamming up and doing nothing, which then the People of the Country are the ones that really hurt from their disconnect. Then because of all the troubles of our Leaders, we the People see this and continue it throughout the streets, which does nothing but create more drama and chaos around us all. When the life events happen to each of us and yes we all have these events come to us at one point or another, instead of fixing the issues ourselves from the events properly we either do nothing, or we take it to the so called Leaders and try to make them file a bill against whatever the event was that came to you, but what we should of done in the first place is, fix the issue properly ourselves, so we then can continue moving forward stronger and better than before. You also add in the Political Correction throughout this Society and the fact we are afraid to do anything properly, for fear of offending somebody, now you have some pretty ridiculous bills that are trying to be passed by these so called Leaders. With this Political Correction we are all trying to make each other happy, but the reality of it is, we are all sad and hurt very deeply inside our souls. We all should never be afraid to look each other in the eye and tell them straight up the reality of anything, instead of   tip toeing around like we are walking on eggshells. just like a movie quote from A few good men, ” You can’t handle the truth”!!! Hate to say it but in this Society of Political Correction, this quote is right on. Just like within our Leaders of our Government, when they or anyone of us disagrees with our President, now we are a ” Racist”?? Come on now People its time to grow a backbone, fix our issues properly, so we all can get back to walking our paths of this journey through life peacefully and happily.

Just like the bird in this picture, we all belong to a large species, not all the members of the Species are the same, or even look the same, but yet unlike the birds we the People of our Species, do nothing but fight and disrespect each other every chance we get. Why do we keep on doing this to each other, we see that it does nothing but bring more ugliness around us, but yet we just keep on defying each other. The why we do it? Your guess is as good as mine and we all can guess just like we all have an opinion and you know what the saying is to we all have opinions? I think we all should simply just coincide with each other just like the birds around us,  fix our issues properly from the events that may come to us, so we all can walk our paths in peace, then be as happy as a bird singing each and every morning.

 

” The Herring bird is one big bird, there are bigger birds and they are all part of the beauty of this planet”

” Diversity is all around us it is within the animal kingdom as well as the Human kingdom”

” A true Leader just simply goes about his business, the rest think they can lead but in reality they make everything worse than it was”

 

 

Karma will always avenge those with false acquisitions

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

It is sad that in today’s Society some will accuse others of things they have never done…… Why? Your guess is as good as mine, maybe it’s the fact that they lack their own self confidence and this is a way for them to try to move forward, while thinking they are better than you?  Could also mean that they have some hidden issues that they are afraid to address? I get the fact we all have our own issues that we deal with on a daily basis, but when we deal with issues that are brought on by others, that make false accusations, shows just how people in this Society need to grow up, accept the responsibility of their actions, learn how to be confident in their abilities and instead of burying their issues deep within their sole, fix what needs to be fixed, so we all can move forward in peace and happiness, along our paths of this journey through life.

Self Confidence is something we all learn as we grow along our paths of this journey, self confidence doesn’t just happen as it is achieved by the way we learn to be better at all we do along our paths. When we lack this Self Confidence shows that we have become lazy at earning and achieving it, we forget how to practice whatever we need to practice, so we can achieve the confidence to move forward, within this Society we have become so lazy, we forget what it is to work hard for what we want, to work hard to gain our self confidence and when we get that lazy we then get lost within the clouds of our own self doubt. When self doubt enter onto our paths, we then will do anything, in order to move forward, even if that means knocking others down, so we then what we think is moving ahead of them? This is only one thing and that is, the fact that we lack the confidence in ourselves to move forward correctly, so we then can achieve success correctly, while we all become happy everyday of our journey.

Self Confidence isn’t just in the ability of a person that plays a sport, it is within each of us along our paths of our journey, we strive for the confidence to be great at whatever we are doing, when we lack the confidence and we become lazy to work hard at achieving it, we then will do anything to try to achieve it, yes that means we will try to bring down others around us,  to make it seem like we are better, even though they do the job better than I? Simply look at some one like Tom Brady of the New England Patriots, he works very hard, not just at practice, but within the game of football he plays, with that hard work and practice, he has enough self confidence in his abilities, that he is by far the best Quarterback in football, those within the game that chats ill of him are simply jealous and are lazy to work as hard as Tom, not too mention the reason why some hate on him so much. Life along our paths of this journey will go so much smoother if we all work hard and practice everything we do, fix whatever issues we have, so we can achieve our self confidence and be better and stronger moving forward.

 

” Self Confidence isn’t something that just comes to us, we have to work hard in achieving whatever we do to gain the Confidence”

” To bring another down is not the way for us to achieve success, or even move forward stronger and better”

” When we lack self confidence only means we have issues that we need to fix, so we can achieve the confidence to be better and stronger moving forward”

 

The road to a Championship

Forest

 

The road to any Championship within any sport you may play, are full of unknowns, trials and tribulation. Now I am a New England Patriot fan not just of long standing, but I am what is known as the hometown Homey, with that said…….. I have also lived through the toughest of times when these Patriots lost more than they win, now with these Patriots of the last fifteen years winning more than they lose, I have earned the success this team has given me.

Since Bill Belichek and Tom Brady took the reigns of this franchise, the New England Patriots have become one of the best teams within the history of the National Football League, not too mention the best Quarterback/Coach tandem as well. You had the Steeler’s of the 1970’s, the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s that were great dynasties of their time and right now it is the New England Patriots who have become that great dynasty. Unfortunately with success comes the hater’s and in today’s World, the haters are ten times worse than of any other time. You also had the New York Yankees throughout their winning days within Baseball and became the most hated team within their sport, it happens because when a team gets so dominant and beats regularly other teams, it’s the fans that bring out this hatred of the team that their team can not beat.

” a team can only be a Champion when they step up to the plate and beat a true Champion with regularity”

I get the fact that the fans want to play and pick these fantasy teams to compete with each other, but these fantasy games have completely ruined all sports and completely took away any integrity that these sports had.  ” Let the real players stand up and play the game they love to play”. These fantasy teams that the fans pick, are just that fantasy. They are not real teams and from what I see all the other owner’s throughout the NFL, want these fantasy teams to make it look like their teams are doing okay? Roger Goodell the Commissioner of the NFL, is in power from the board of directors of the league and who are these directors? All the owners of all 32 teams in the NFL. When it comes to the New England Patriots, all the other Owners are the ones that have hated on this team the most, simply because they have made their teams look completely silly throughout all that watch the NFL. What I say to these Owners is, time to step up to the plate and beat a real Champion (fair and square) that the Patriots have become, so your teams can have a share of what being a Champion truly feels like.

It is not about the Patriots laying down so other teams can catch up to the curve, it is all about the other teams of the NFL catching up to the Patriots on the field fair and square. These Patriots throughout their history in the NFL have seen times where they lose more than they win, they didn’t whine and cry like the teams of today, no!! They just stepped up to the plate and with much hard work, became one of the best Franchises in the history of the NFL, it’s time the other teams follow the path of these Patriots, so maybe one day they to can become a True Champion.

” A True Champion doesn’t just happen, first there comes dedication, hard work and perseverance”

” instead of whining and crying and creating hate of a team, step up to the plate to beat a true champion and become the champion”

” Hard work is what defines Tom Brady and the number one reason why he has been so good for so long”
