The Olympics fascinate us and compel us to cheer for these young athletes. We’re inspired as we witness the result of years of dedication of the participants. We marvel at their gracefulness.
A day at dog beach this week made me realize some similarities between the disciplined Olympians and these furry athletes. First, you will notice that all kinds of dogs are here, just as so many nations are represented at the Olympics. Lots of greeting and meeting goes on.
Here’s one where a human tosses a ball into the waves.
Keep an unerring eye on the ball.
Priorities, focus, confidence. This is what we’re seeing in our amazing Olympians. This is what I see in these beautiful dogs on the beach. This is what we can all aspire to in our everyday lives. That’s how we can all be champions.
How about you? What has inspired you in this year’s Olympics?
