OLYMPIC HEAD GAME (0:53)
The awesome wife is hooked by the hoopla of the Olympics. She makes loud, funny noises when a skater completes a triple axel jump on the ice, and she’s empathetic when they don’t—doesn’t matter if they’re Russian or Israeli. Me? I like to observe them closely, read their facial expressions and body language, scrutinize their “on camera” comments—learn from them.

| YES! |
Thanks for this one Michael, quite timely! I've been getting into the Olympics this time around, and find it inspiring as I work on my new music! I was already seeing myself as an 'athlete' and paralleling my experience with those of the Olympians. Thanks again for inspiring!

| Into the quiet..into the magic |
Michael thank you so much for all of your great blogs. Really, thank you. Who am I? Except when I sing...it's like this connection... world and Universe become one and I feel like I am in my right place. But in myself, I feel like...who am I? Practising helps eliminate the self. Dedication to the craft is my joy and I am more dedicated than ever now. Thank you Michael so much. Rachel

| Positive Grows |
The grit and determination of the athletes on the world stage in Russia lifts all of us. The media should see the benefits of this in their daily reporting. Instead of: If it bleeds, it leads. It should be: If it peacefully unites and wins, we grin and grow.

I had a voice lesson last night after a break of about 5 years. Wow, time flies! I decided to have a coach again since I'm in the midst of recording my new CD. She told me: you have to see yourself now as an olympic athlete in training. Great analogy. And, yes, the voices of doubt are already in my head. That's why I sought a teacher. To help me stay real and focus, focus, focus.

| Making dreams come true |
I truly admire the athletes that have worked so hard to get there! However- I'm too busy working on *my* dreams to indulge in watching theirs. No time for distractions! Go USA!!!

| High Productivity |
I have TV monitors set up throughout my company and the Olympics are running all day & night. My staff and employees love it. And yes, productivity is high!

| We're all athletes |
I too am mesmerized by the strength, grace, and commitment of the Olympic athletes. I hadn’t thought of it but Yes, we do have a lot in common. First we put in our hours. Then there is the time for each of us when the start gun pops and it’s time to present our art in whatever form it takes. So we watch these Olympians with empathy, because our process is the same.

| Go for the gold |
I love Gracie Gold’s story. This is her first Olympian event and yes, she won the Bronze, even though everyone thought she’d win the Gold. And afterwards, she expressed a great thrill at winning the Bronze and is set on doing it differently to win the Gold in 4 years. What an inspiration to those of us who miss our goal the first time. It is only the first time, after all, and we will try again with a lot more knowledge and experience under our belts.
