Vet du ditt “varför”?

 –ett blogginlägg som reflekterar mitt liv och som jag även hoppas kan inspirera andra att ta livet till nästa nivå.     “A good Life is not a place you arrive to, a good Life is what you see through your daily lens” detta citat hörde jag på min favorit podcast “the school of greatness” av Lewis Howes. Min tolkning av detta och liknande citat är “Ett bra liv är inte ett ställe du anländer till, ett bra liv är den resa du gör varje dag med en vision i sikte” Detta är inget nytt eller revolutionerande men en viktig påminnelse för alla.

I encourage participation in sport at all levels for many different reasons, but when we...

Paralympic Champion Josh George expresses what excellence means to him.

    What is excellence? As an athlete, in an occupation that constantly pits me against my contemporaries and ranks us by order of performance, it is a question I am faced with daily. As a Paralympian, the question takes on a different tenor. Paralympians, like female athletes, are athletes with a label. We are “female athletes,” or “athletes with a disability,” and our excellence is tagged as different from the excellence of “athletes,” i.e. our male, able- bodied counterparts.

Excellence is a universal concept; and while the parameters of excellence vary, they are the same, regardless of gender, creed, race, religion, sexual orientation, or disability. Excellence is not confined by labels. After...
