Great moments in sports are the culmination of the individual athlete’s performance alone or as an integral member of a winning team. These pinnacles of performance result from practice, persistence, and skill - plus an intuitive knowledge of movement that elevates excellence into the ephemeral.


ACTIVE DANCE a multi-sport discipline! Coach Stephanie Wood, PCC www.bodyawe.com


In sports it occurs when actions exceed expectations, when records tumble, and when underdogs triumph over the long odds against them. And when it occurs, it elevates all of us in appreciation. Even as observers we participate in the glory in recognition of our common humanity. When a single human being, or members of a team, perform exceptionally well; every human being smiles in recognition of the shared similarities that contribute to the performance.


Whether we are athletes, performers, fans or casual observers, we appreciate these exceptional events. If we participate in any athletic endeavors, socially or competitively, we have an insider’s respect for the effort going into every performance. If our only interest in sports begins and ends on the couch in front of the flat screen, we’ve seen enough of the sport to value the extraordinary performances when they occur. “Sport is imposing order on what was chaos” ~ Anthony Starr


From awkward, and at times a clumsy amateur to a strong, confident, talented professional, the athletes who accomplish those great moments combined talent with training to produce those results. They focused on the goal, performance. Taking mind, body, and spirit of each individual performer, each member of the winning team; and then combining the multiple elements into a unified, single purpose may produce a winning season---but how often does it result in exceptional, record-breaking, uplifting events?


We’ve all experienced being in the zone, exceeding our own expectations, going beyond what we perceived as our best, and the warm, wonderful feelings that result. When that happens on the international competitive stage, the halo effect positively affects us all. Human triumph uplifts us, inspires us, and encourages us. As a human being, anyone’s exceptional performance motivates us.


There is magic there. Positive, warm, stimulating energy that rouses us to act to better ourselves and spread this enthusiasm to those we come in contact with. According to Dr. David Hawkins, in his book, “Power vs. Force”, positive energy improves our environment on every level, as it creates a lasting exponential effect into the future.
