Resilience, Confidence, Achievement and Humor

Resilience, Confidence, Achievement and Humor


This was sent by a friend and raised my vibrations. It is amazing what confidence, support and humor can do! Bolt is described by some as a mischievous child who received a lot of support and encouragement to reach his goals. Love it!

Resilience is one of the protective factors that counselors try to "teach" in session, some people are born with it, others can learn it as they go along.

It is refreshing to see Usain Bolt's achievement in the field of athletics. I admire his humor and obvious positive regard for his teammates, although it is an individual sport, they convey  the sense that they are united and elevated by the energy of a nation. Hopefully this will raise your vibrations as it did mine.

Reading from The Book of Legends - Bolt 2 Vs 19-32
19:And when they were all gathered in a certain place in the land of Lon, these swift men of many nations, Usain, he being the swiftest of he lot, did turn and say to his fellow brethren from the land of Jahm.
20:Verily I shall go before thee to to prepare a place on the mountain for all of us and one shall stand on my right hand and the other on my left.21:For know thee this, there are precious metals on offer and it is written that we are the chosen ones and that we alone shall partake of the gold, silver and bronze which they have prepared for us on Olympia.22:There shall be none before us.
23:There shall be none with us on the mount of victory
24: Verily shall the naysayers be silenced and they shall behold the people of Jahm25: And they shall say amongst themselves "What sign is this? How can a land so small produce such giants?"

26: And they will be struck dumb.

27: We shall cover ourselves with the Black, the Green and the Gold and show them the back of our spiked feet.

28: They shall try to overtake us on the curved path. They will fail.
29:They will try to ambush us in the straits. But they will again fail, for we will have already passed that way.
30:The tribe of Lewis shall make burnt offerings and pray that duppy will tek us but they will fail and be blinded, dumbfounded and confounded.
31: You Yohan of the Beastly Tribe, and you young Warrior of the Tribe of Weir are the chosen ones to be with me in victory.
32: Therefore I say unto thee brethren of Racers, come swiftly and tarry not in this starting place and I will meet thee both at the end of this chevroned path [anon]
