  • 08-08-08: Faster, Higher, Stronger

    Let me suggest you tweet this:

    The Olympic motto is made up of three Latin words: "Citius, Altius, Fortius", which means "Faster, Higher, Stronger". These three words encourage the athlete to give his or her best during competition, and to view this effort as a victory in itself.

    The sense of the motto is that being first is not necessarily a priority, but that giving one's best and striving for personal excellence is a worthwhile goal. It can apply equally to athletes and to each one of us.

    Here are a few things to learn from the Olympians --

    1. Be dedicated and passionate
    2. Keep your goals in mind
    3. Learn to be a team player
    4. Cheaters never prosper
    5. It's not done till it's done
    6. Milk it while you can
    7. Have a backup plan
    8. Have goals after your career is over

    The Chinese Year of the Rat

    The Rat (Chinese:鼠) was welcomed in ancient times as a protector and bringer of material prosperity. It is the first of the 12-year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac related to the Chinese calendar. Rat is associated with aggression, wealth, charm, and order, yet also associated with death, war, the occult, pestilence, and atrocities. The Year of the Rat is associated with the earthly branch symbol 子.
