Happiness

Happiness does not come automatically. It is not a gift that good fortune bestows upon us and a reversal of fortune takes back.

It depends on us alone. One does not become happy overnight, but with patient labor, day after day.

Happiness is constructed, and that requires effort and time. In order to become happy, we have to learn how to change ourselves.

Good happiness to everyone

Sport means renewed joy

A month of planetary sporting events awaits us, not only the European Football Championship, but also the Tour de France, Wimbledon and then the Tokyo Olympics. We are living it in these days of soccer, great excitement has been created, in all of us there seems to prevail a sense of joy, of awareness that sport with the public even if for now limited in numbers represents the exit from a nightmare and the return to an ever greater freedom. We live these days as the final phase of a nightmarish period. The Italian athletes received today from President Mattarella the flag that they will carry to the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Sport is a highly emotional activity that unites everyone under the sign of the nation. There are no other activities that have this connotation so involving beyond the political and social differences. Sport unites not because it is without faults, on the contrary it has exactly all those that our society expresses, from cheating to doping.

We need it because sport is an expression of life, of the need for movement of every human being, a primary psychological need. The more sedentary and overweight our society becomes, the greater is the unconscious desire to satisfy us through the spectacle that champions offer us with their physical effort, their sporting dexterity and the search for exceptional performance in decisive moments. They can make mistakes but for us they will always be our champions, because they live unique moments that are even difficult for us to think about and then, as we know, you can’t always win. It’s okay though, sport is cathartic, we will cry with our athletes.

Sport is such a community that it keeps the athletes and all of us together, their joys are ours and that goes for the pain of defeat as well. In short, sport is much more than a game, it is a powerful activator of our deepest emotions.

Every day over the past year we have read stories of community heroes, doctors, nurses and many others. Among them are the athletes who have shown the courage to continue preparing for something that was unknown if it would return. These are stories of resilience, sacrifice and focus in the absence of any certainty for the future. For this reason the sporting events that are about to begin will involve us because they will be the demonstration that we can return to live the game with happiness.

Excellence: between madness and ambition to overcome any limit

search for Excellence is a destructive Madness

if you are not willing to Be Happy for not reaching it.

it needs the Balance of Reason

because the Ambition to Overcome any Limit does not turn from excellent Prowess  in dangerous Excess.
