1. TAKING SOME LESSONS ABOUT LIFE, FROM SPORT

=============================================

A few yrs ago we published this article, which got a lot of nods from subscribers. We are repeating it now in the spirit of the moment the soccer WC finals of-course and we have added a few lessons from it. Read the 2006 article from the link below; read the current lessons; and reflect. http://www.relationship-affairs.com/Let_Us_Relate_Newsletter-Lessons-from-soccer-world-cup.html

2010 lessons

1. Be in the moment it does not matter that you are trailing behind hopelessly---do celebrate that goal when you get it! It does not matter that your opponents might come back and still win the game---do celebrate the goal, celebrate at that moment and forget about the possible end-result. Take each experience as the only one that matters, because it is.

2. Believe in miracles. You are never too small to make your mark. You are never too invisible to show significance. It does not matter what others think of you; grab every little opportunity and do your best with that. There is a saying that a wise man is the one who take the bricks others have thrown at him and lays a foundation with them the host country, my beautiful country, has done just that!

3. What goes around does have a tendency of coming around. Do remember that. Always play fair. Always be considerate.

4. At the end of it all, remember to thank your maker. Enjoy the games!


SOME MOTIVATIONAL TALK

==============================================

2. A CHALLENGE FOR YOU

==============================================

FROM TODAY ON, CELEBRATE THAT 1 GOAL, REGARDLESS OF HOW MANY MORE YOU STILL NEED TO WIN THE GAME! BE PRESENT, YOU ARE IN 'THIS' MOMENT AND IT IS THIS MOMENT THAT COUNTS.

==============================================

3. INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES

==============================================

4. Our Vision and purpose

=============================================

Here at http://www.public-speaking-solutions.com, we believe in the power of words. We believe in the absolute necessity and importance of enhanced & effective delivery of speeches to create better understanding, empowerment and information. Talk should teach, guide, heal, empower and inspire. It should not destroy, demean, lie, gossip, cheat, swear, or destroy - that kind is cheap and useless. That is our vision and that is what we stand for.
