Tuesday Thoughts And Something New




Hi Friends,

I trust you were inspired to embrace the need to let go of things that don't serve you anymore. How about we learn to embrace something new, now that we have let go of something old?


Have you heard about the new sport being added to the 2024 Olympic games? It's called Breaking, an urban dance style with roots in hip-hop culture. It is the only sport that will make its debut in the 2024 Olympics. Karate, baseball and softball are not returning from four years ago, but the Paris Games will bring back skateboarding, surfing and sport climbing from 2020, rounding out the lineup of four optional sports for these Olympics. 

There is always change. Even inside the well established sports. Every year they add more difficult tasks and routines that seem to defy human ability. It’s really fun to look at pictures from the first olympic games in Greece in the year 1896. By the way, I heard that this year, female and male athletes are represented EQUALLY! So how about it? Can we embrace change?


Embracing Change: The Power of Trying New Things


Change is often met with resistance, yet it is an inevitable part of life that can lead to growth, innovation, and newfound success. Whether it's a shift in career, lifestyle, or mindset, embracing change and trying new things can open doors to opportunities you never imagined.The sport of Breaking, often referred to as breakdancing, emerged from the streets of New York in the 1970s as a key element of hip-hop culture. It was a form of expression, rebellion, and creativity for marginalized communities. Fast forward to 2024, and breaking is now an official Olympic sport, recognized on the global stage. This leap from underground culture to the pinnacle of international sports, showcases the transformative power of embracing change.

 

Lessons from Breaking's Journey


1. Adaptation and Evolution: 


Breaking's journey to the Olympics required adaptation and evolution. Dancers had to refine their techniques, adhere to competitive standards, and demonstrate athletic prowess alongside artistic expression. This mirrors the need for individuals and organizations to evolve continually to stay relevant and competitive.


2. Breaking Stereotypes: 


The inclusion of breaking in the Olympics challenges traditional notions of what constitutes a sport. It breaks down barriers, proving that creativity and athleticism are not mutually exclusive. This encourages us to challenge our own preconceived notions and step out of our comfort zones.



3. Opportunities in Unconventional Paths: 


Many traditional sports have long-established pathways to success, but breaking's Olympic debut illustrates that unconventional paths can lead to extraordinary opportunities. By trying something new, you might discover a passion or talent that sets you apart.



How does this apply to you and I? 


Change is a huge part of personal growth and we get there through new experiences. Just as breaking's inclusion in the Olympics is a testament to the benefits of embracing change, individuals can experience profound personal growth by stepping into the unknown. Here are some of the benefits trying new things can impact your life:


1. Boosting Confidence: 


Taking on new challenges builds resilience and self-confidence. Each small victory, whether mastering a new skill or overcoming a fear, contributes to a stronger sense of self.



2. Expanding Perspectives: 


New experiences broaden your horizons, exposing you to different cultures, ideas, and ways of thinking. This expanded worldview can lead to greater empathy and innovation in your personal and professional life.



3. Discovering Hidden Talents:


Trying new things can reveal hidden  talents and passions. You might find joy and fulfillment in activities you never considered before, enriching your life in unexpected ways.



4. Enhancing Adaptability:


Embracing change enhances your ability to adapt to new situations. This is an invaluable skill in an ever-evolving world, making you more resilient and resourceful.



The journey of breaking from the streets to the Olympics is a powerful example of the transformative power of embracing change and trying new things. By stepping out of your comfort zone and welcoming new experiences, you open yourself up to growth, innovation, and a richer, more fulfilling life. So, take that first step into the unknown—you never know where it might lead.



This weeks affirmation: 


I am trying out new things
