Olympic inspiration

Whether a great sport’s fan or not, everyone can be inspired by the Olympics. Each of the athletes taking part have been chosen by their nation to take part out on account of their proficiency or merit. They may not all win a medal but they are the best of the best regardless of that. I will never forget listening to a young man give the speech preceding the Cambridge/Oxford boat race last April. He was part of a Cambridge team that didn’t win and received no accolades. But his simple and yet brave words were inspiring ‘its not the winning that important but the taking part’. How true that is for the athletes and for all of us. There is so much emphasis on ‘winning’ these days. But in the end it’s the hard work that really counts. Every athlete has worked hard to win their place in the games and were chosen to participate regardless of whether or not they win a medal. As a Christian I believe that each and every one of us was chosen by God whatever we do. We all have to take our part in life and work hard to achieve our very best at what we do whether or not that best is ever recognised by a accolade. Or as in the case of a writer by publication. Success was never won in a moment or lightly.
