by Joyce Schwarz, blogging at www.hollywood2020.net on July 7, 2011, this week while watching the Women's World Cup I noticed new badges on the women's uniform sleeves saying, "LIVE YOUR GOALS" and I thought -- how brilliant. How come I never noticed that before?
As the author of the best selling book THE VISION BOARD (see free chapter at http://tinyurl.com/seeinsidebook, I usually tune right into anything about goals, visions and dreams. And my own philosophy is strongly grounded in LIVING YOUR VISION, so this new mantra for FIFA ties in perfectly.
SO I researched this for you and found this link to be extremely valuable: FIFA LIVE YOUR GOALS CAMPAIGN LINK
Why the LIVE YOUR GOALS FIFA CAMPAIGN?
Here's what they say on their website:
Today there are 29 million women and girls playing football worldwide.
Football is a sport for you too – come along with your friends and help us to grow this number!
The game is fun, easy and fair. If you are interested in keeping fit, healthy and cool then football is the sport for you.
Join a local team and who knows – maybe you will be representing your country at the next FIFA Women’s World Cup™ in Canada in 2015!
Live Your Goals
The Live Your Goals campaign features a number of women’s football’s best players who are living their dreams by competing in this year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup in Germany.
The goal of these women and girls was to become a professional footballer. Achieving this goal has given them the chance to travel all over the world and enjoy many amazing experiences on their way to the top!. But of course, football is for everybody, whatever your goals!
Live Your Goals shows that dreams can come true, no matter what obstacles stand in the way.
Check out the stories of top players such as Germany’s Kim Kulig, Canada’s Christine Sinclair and New Zealand’s Rebecca Smith amongst many others and see what you too could achieve if you show the same enthusiasm and commitment to football. With this campaign, FIFA aims to inspire the next generation of female footballers all over the world.
THIS IS JUST THE KIND OF WORLD WIDE EFFORT THE OLD OPRAH SHOW WOULD HAVE SUPPORTED -- maybe the OWN network will add sports to it's shows soon?
