Go for the GOLD!

Of course it is August when the Summer Olympics are held; this is the month of the Golden Child archetype!  The stellar athletes who have each honed their art and physical prowess dominate center stage with their outstanding performance, inspiring all who attend or who watch to ‘dig deep’ to release our own Golden Child capabilities.

How do you feel when you watch Michael Phelps and Lilly King and Simone Manuel and Simone Biles and Yusain Bolt achieve their Gold Medal standards, breaking previously held world records and expanding the hitherto known limits of human capacity? It is exhilarating and lifts us all to greater heights of ambition and foresight.

I say our foresight is enhanced because these Olympian accomplishments require so much practice and planning and exertion far in advance of their achievement. These Olympians must truly GO FOR THE GOLD in their training for many years, honing their skills, being coached endlessly, refining their skills and their sense of purpose, daily. So, their accomplishment lights up something inside of each of us; our own Golden Child adventuresome spirit; our Hope for the future and our willingness to step forward, step UP, and stake a claim.

What GOAL are you Going For in your life now? Then, GO FOR THE GOLD! Do not settle for anything less IN YOURSELF than the dedicated persistence to Aim High, Do Your Best, and GO FOR IT!

The results hardly matter in the end, so long as you are striving to achieve your own Personal Best!
