Moments of Happiness They Can’t Take Away from You

  1. Luis, what a really heart warming blog and truly felt – and as “motivation” and “collaboration” are at the heart of everything else you do talk about , it is not so out of keeping at all!
    And even though it might slightly stick in the throats of many other European nationals (:-)) – at least most of them can console themselves that their team was not the one annihilated by a truly masterful side in the final game!
    Let’s work towards the impossible being possible – I’m all for for that!

    1. Hi Marie-Louise, thanks much for dropping by and for the lovely commentary! Indeed, team spirit, altruism, giving one self for the better of the team, participate, collaborate, share unselfishly, trust your game, motivation, passion to make history happen, to have an impact, GOODNESS!! It does have a lot to do with what I usually get to talk about over here, indeed! Thanks for the eye-opener! It was only as I kept reading your comments that I truly realised what the team did on Sunday and how, if you *really* want to, the impossible is no longer impossible, but much possible and doable, and I, too, am very much for it!!

      Thanks again for the inspiring commentary! 🙂

  2. Hi Luis
    Spain deserved the title, no doubt. They played much better than Italy.
    @Marie: I prefer to be annihilated in the final rather than not reach it 🙂 . IMHO 4-0 was too much, a more honest result would have been 2-0.

    1. @Roberto I loved your comment and you made me laugh a lot! As half of me is from a small country that made the impossible possible in the 2004 Euros (and therfore I identified with everything Luis said in his lovely blog) and the other half from a country that is still holding it’s head low after this year’s performance – the only phrase I heard on the street was “rather Italy than us”…

      Ironically I don’t even like the sport! – but I loved the passion in Luis blog and everything it stood for – and for me that was worth Spain’s win alone!

      1. Hi Marie-Louise, thanks much for those kind comments, once again. It’s interesting, because the blog post came out as a reflection of what it meant for me personally such victory in the context of football but applicable to everyday’s life. I mean, at the end of the day, to me, it’s just a football game, but it is also about what you make out of it for your own personal learning experience, and, to me, it was proof, once again, that teams outperform individuals and that with the right mindset, motivation, trust, generosity, respect for the game you play, and openness you are bound to achieve great things and they surely did! With humility and humbleness merging together nicely. Remarkable, powerful message for our leaders out there on how sustainable growth can be achieved 🙂

    2. Ciao Rob! Thanks much, my friend, for dropping by and for the kind commentary. Yes, I agree with you the win was more than deserved. Stunning football played all along, although I, too, agree with you the final result was a bit too much. The 2 – 0 before Motta got injured would have been more than enough to justify the win and it was unfortunate that the game was gone when that happened. Either way, when I saw the first match between Italy and Spain, I knew that Italy would go really far, in as much as beating Germany in the semis. I think I was one of the few who believed it, so when they proved I knew we had a great final coming up! And we did, although the result was not very fair, but you should feel proud of your national team, Rob! We will see you again in 2014!! 😀
