The Hudson Valley Flying Circus Pole Vault Project
“Powered by JOE TEA”
“MAKING HISTORY…with SPIRIT” ….The true measure of the athlete…lies in the effort and inner spirit to excel. This was the most important lesson developed this Indoor Season at Flying Circus. It was never all about winning the gold medal..but more about an athletes commitment to human spirit. Spirit can never be defeated..as it is the awesome by product of participating with all your might. CONGRATULATIONS to all our 108 Indoor Pole Vaulters this winter… Keep looking ahead to the challenges and adventures to come.
CIRCUS THOUGHTS ………
* Know what you want to accomplish. See yourself excelling.
BELIEVE in YOUR MIRACLE. TAKE A CHANCE on yourself.
The SPIRIT of TOUGHNESS and BIG HEARTS GET IT DONE.
Make progress ….. not mark time.
Don’t MAJOR in MINOR things in life.
AVOID NEGATIVE PEOPLE.
CHAMPIONS demand results.
A slacker asks when is practice over…A CHAMPION asks..”CAN I STAY LATE”.
Bio-Rhythms … Prepare for your break-thru.
Be CONSUMED by the CONCEPT of TEAM…IT’S WE..not ME.
