Run The World, Girls

Source: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vault/article/magazine/MAG1204381/2/index.htmAugust 13, 2012 Run The World, Girls History has been lit large across the London fortnight—the likely last stands of Phelps and the Dream Team, the kinetic brilliance of Bolt—but the electricity of these Games has come from another growing, if not new, source: towering womenALEXANDER WOLFFPIERRE DE Coubertin may have been the father of the modern Olympic movement, but he was no Title IX dad. The French nobleman once declared from under that fastidious little mustache of his that an Olympics with women would be, among other things, “uninteresting” and “unaesthetic.” Oh, how the first 11 days of the London Olympics put the lie to both claims.Consider the galvanizing beauty of the women’s judo final, in which Kayla Harrison, sexually abused for nearly six years beginning at age 11 by a now-imprisoned male coach, felt safe enough to leap joyfully into the arms of a new sensei, who had helped her discover the self-confidence to win the first U.S. gold medal in the sport.And consider the race that led to Britain’s first gold of the Games, won by a coxless pair that included Heather Stanning, to whom the Royal Artillery granted a leave in 2010 so she could train. Now that she and Helen Glover have accomplished that mission, Captain Stanning is due back with her regiment, which will soon deploy to Afghanistan’s Helmand province.And consider the U.K. weightlifting record that Britain’s Zoe Pablo Smith set a week ago Monday, after which she ducked into a Victoria’s Secret on the edge of the Olympic Park to do some celebratory shopping.

Healthy Attachment: Don't Send Your Kids To School Without It …

Family Field Guide has been on vacation the past few weeks. I’ve been relaxing, making a photo album and kicking back with our left-coast daughter in Santa Monica. (See my vacation pics at www.facebook.com/familyfieldguide.)  And to top off the summer, our granddaughter learned to walk and (drumroll!)  we received a much anticipated “save the date” announcement from our oldest son and his fiancee. So, we’re back. And I’m glad you’re here.My little girl disappeared down the dirt trail toward the place where her first grade class was headed on a field trip. One sturdy brown oxford in front of the other and school dress swaying at the hem, she seemed solid and confident, aware and in the moment. “How lucky she is,” I thought, to be able to confront a world of unknowns so relaxed and unafraid. Though hard to pinpoint, I noticed a difference between her and some of her classmates Continue reading

10 Top Tips from the – Building Self Confidence Blog

6Aug/120Building Self Confidence- 10 Top Tips from the OlympicsI don’t often watch sport – I’d much rather take part.But the London 2012 Olympics has been an exception for me.I have felt very inspired and moved by the dedication, commitment and good grace when winning or losing that has been shown by most of the athletes. And the enthusiastic support of the crowds.Even though I find it hard to understand why such talented people put so much effort into racing up and down a track or a pool – and sacrifice so much to do it a fraction of a second faster, it is still uplifting to see such passion for doing something difficult. Most of these athletes are fantastic role models for qualities such as team spirit, exellence, discipline, endurance and focus.How do they display so much confidence in the face of the high expectations of the nation, the massive competition and the eyes of the world upon them?Here are some confidence building and life success secret the Olympics has reminded me of:Create a good team round you – people who care about your success and have the knowledge and skill to help you get to the next level quicker.

Borderline Personality Disorder and Building Self Confidence: An …

Jul 30 Borderline Personality Disorder and Building Self Confidence: An Uphill BattleFiled Under Uncategorized In the spirit of the Olympics, I thought I’d blog about building self confidence, a key factor to excelling at sports and life in general. If you ask most elite athletes, many will say “My game (race, event, etc.) is 80% mental, 20% physical”. Some will even put those percentages at 90% mental, 10% physical. While these are obviously overstatements, the point made is clear: if you want to succeed, you have to believe in yourself. Continue reading

I wonder if he’s the right man for the job?

I can’t help admiring the blind self-confidence that Nick Buckell, G4S Securities Chief Executive showed in front of the UK Government’s Home Affairs Select Committee today. After saying he was “very sorry” for the total cock up which he has so far presided over he assured the committee that “It’s not about me; it’s about delivering the contract. I’m the right person to ensure that happens. As CEO of the group, I am accountable for the delivery of this contract.”Seems to me that if he is the man accountable for delivering the contract, and it is conspicuously obvious to the your average village idiot that it is not being delivered in any acceptable form up until now, then it is surely very much about him, and equally obvious he is not the right person to “ensure it happens” Continue reading
