The first thing that popped into my head this morning after I left the gym…because after a good workout is when my I really get pumped up about EVERYTHING…If you dream it you can be it, if you reach for it you can touch it, if you think it you can become it. It’s so true, and my mantra for the day that I will tell anyone who wants to, or even doesn’t want to, listen.
Everyday I have my son repeat after me, “I am a superstar. I am a campion,” then he gives me five. It’s the little reminder/positive affirmation that he can do anything and that he can become anything.
My son LOVES hockey. I do not know where the obsession (versus just like) came from. Sure he watched hockey with his dad but it went from all Dora all the time to all hockey all the time. Once the playoffs came around last year I knew I would soon be in trouble. That God for DVRs because suddenly we were watching the same games, over, and over, and over again, all summer long.
I finally got start and started ordering DVDs, “NHL’s Greatest Goals,” “NHL Behind the Scenes” and every children’s hockey book ever written, “Z is for Zamboni,” isn’t that on everyone’s bookshelf?
We have hockey sticks (many), hockey pucks (many), hockey nets (many) hockey jerseys (many) and hockey cards, literally all over the house, car, and it goes on everywhere you look. The boy loves hockey, and I’m not going to lie, mom likes it better than Dora.
I often ask him, “Cael are you going to be the greatest hockey player ever?” To which he undoubtedly responds, “Yes.”
The purpose of this blog is not to talk about my kid (even if he is the cutest 3 year old ever) but to talk about passion and unbridled enthusiasm.
I am my son’s cheerleader, supporter, motivator, because I believe in him just like I believe in myself or anyone else for that matter. We live in the United States of America, the land of opportunity. Where you can come from nothing and have everything…as long as you want it enough.
Positive thoughts yield positive results. Decide what you want, be passionate about it, move towards it and achieve it. Most importantly, repeat after me, “I am a superstar. I am a champion.”
