Winning isn't everything
But steeling yourself when when the possibility is nigh is tough
This is what separates champions from winners
In the face of losing everything or winning it all
How will you act? Would you be focused? How to keep yourself calm? Crack jokes? Put blinders on? Remove yourself from all situations?
The key is to
Immerse yourself in the moment and let the forces of your will
Combine with your skill to overcome at any odds
Every moment, every breath every movement conversation and action means so
Much when the microscope is on you tearing apart your every move
Do not let that get to you
Overcome and achieve and by all mean win
Because as we all know it means everything when it does
As I sit here and reflect on this day I come to think if many things.
How lucky I am as a father, someone who is relatively healthy and gainfully employed.
This day brings out bouts of patriotism we have not seen since before that terrible day. I am proud of people for that and hope that this feeling carries on.
My hope is the even people not from New York, the area in PA or near DC also realize the seriousness of the impact it made on these areas.
We were attacked. So now what do we do? Hopefully we continue to be the relator or nations, the building blocks to a successful culture.
We cannot go backwards and should not. It is the duty if each and every one of us not to allow our stupid feelings or bad tempers or egoism to deter from the goal.
I challenge all of us to speak out against bigotry, sexism, racism and culture ism
Stand up when you see someone being mistreated. Speak up immediately, step in
For that is what the hundreds of people did that fateful day. The stepped up and laid there lives on the line for everyone.
Without knowing the culprit they spoke for all of us and said " F this you will not kill us all, you will not win"
And they did not. We are stronger than ever and we must continue to be. Personally, ethically and mentally.
Kubb, destroyer of yards and connector of nations.
When you connect with a neighbor on a mutual interest, you are fighting against the terrorist who think that people of our like-mindedness are evil.
Each time you laugh and speak of freedom (trust me many other countries have this and enjoy it as well) you are fighting against those who wish to control and destroy the values we have grown to cherish and respect.
Keep playing Kubb , keep speaking out
Keep on smiling
My respect to all those who have fought or have stood up or spoken out for what they believe In
It was an amazing day last Saturday when 12 teams made their appearance for the first east coast Kubb event.
We are thankfull for all of the support from our wives, families and friends, what a great day!
In the spirit of coming off of this awesome high of good times friends and fun, we wish to remind everyone we want to keep it up!
We want more tournaments, weekly leagues and most of all, the spreading of the word about Kubb to any and all that value one if a kind experiences with friends and family
It is very exciting, but we cannot do this alone. Our friends and family are behind us and that is truly energizing
Let's all remember the truly important things in life and fill ourselves up with it
School is starting soon and we will all soon be really busy. Do not forget to carve out some time for what truly makes your ticker tick. Wake up early, stay up late, whatever it takes
We will do our best to provide some good KUBB it is up to you to do the rest!
Stay tuned and keep in touch
