Nike just rolled out their new campaign and it is called "Find Greatness". What an inspiring campaign!! It couldn't have come at a better time.
Friday marks the opening ceremonies of the London Olympics and I adore watching the athletes. My favorite events are swimming, track and field and gymnastics. I am actually going to set my PVR tonight so I don't miss any of my favorite events. In the Find Greatness video Nike talks about how greatness is within all of us and not just for the chosen few.
I believe that Nike Women has given myself and the other girls an amazing opportunity to find our greatness. What I am learning that as you grow and find greatness haters start to come out and try to bring you down.
Have you ever watched crabs in a bucket, not the music video, actual crabs in a bucket? What I have noticed is that sometimes a crab will try to escape the bucket and the inevitable fate that will cross it's path and as it climbs to freedom the other crabs will grab it and try and drag it back down. Sometimes the crabs escape but most times they are dragged back into the bucket.
As I continue on my journey to the Nike Women's Marathon I have people who tell me that I can't do it, that it is too hard, or I am not capable of doing anything of this nature. I also have people who like to post mean anonymous post on my blog. I have chosen to delete said post and ignore the haters. The only people I need in my life are the people who believe in me.
This is my time to shine and no haters are going to bring me down to their level. I am ready to face obstacles and be a better person because of it. I have an amazing support system in my mom, my boyfriend Mike, Nike Women, Marie Purvis and my Sisters in Nike.
Remember to find your greatness. I find my greatness within me and each time I conquer a goal or hit a milestone it only propels me to be a better person.
Remember, haters are going to hate and those that love and support you will be proud. Make your supports proud and forget about the haters.
