2012 has been an unbelievable year for Great Britain.
We started off the summer with the Queen’s Jubilee, this prompted much ‘coming together’ to celebrate our monarchy and our English heritage. The scene’s of people lining the streets of London to get a glimpse of the Royal family or get a good spot for the concert was amazing.
This sense of national pride continued when the Olympic Torch relay started in Cornwall and travelled the length and breadth of the country to culminate in the opening ceremony at the Olympic Stadium. The celebration of our heritage was fantastic.
Our Olympic athletes were spurred on by the home crowd support and surpassed all expectations by coming home with 65 medals, 29 of them gold. The inspiration continued with the Paralympic athletes, storming home with 120 medals, 34 gold.
This summer has been one inspirational story after another for me, from the amazing stories of the torch bearers, to the gold medal rowers that have only been together for 4 years to the sitting volleyball Paralympian that lost her legs during 7/7.
All of these people have inspired me to go on and be the best that I can be, in business and pleasure. What have they inspired in you?
