Level Three. Heightened Happiness.

Level Three. Heightened Happiness.

By Michelle Lloyd.

Little Herbert, New One and RV were out there, living like they loved it. They knew what they thought about almost everything, a fact that was slightly to their parent’s annoyance.  If they had made a decision about something then each of them, Little Herbert, New One and RV were not that easily talked out of it.

The three had been taught to be able to recognise what they thought about different subjects but some would argue that they had taken this trait to a somewhat extreme degree.

Up to that time, the trio had all felt that size was a means for competing and it was also used for achieving. Why it mattered was because it could help others succeed too. Why? In physical classes whereby sports came into play, everybody wanted that extra edge, and being tall or strong came in as a very handy asset indeed.

It was not always easy to be considered little in a world of large considerations. Could you be everything, everybody desired, all of the time? No, was the answer that Little Herbert had learnt over time. A lot of thought applied to this little but significant scenario and this was why…

Little or large, it did not matter which, but what did make that difference was how one adapted to the need of any situation. Little Herbert had tried to compete at first and school had been nothing but one seemingly long disappointment. Physically, he was not the strongest, fastest or most conventional at activities and this made sports a challenge.

It was when Little Herbert decided to take a step back and think about what his motivation was that his two allies, RV and New One, both helped him and the world of opportunities opened up for him.

Simply because he did not have the edge physically, this did not rule him out of participating or helping his team win. On their route to success Little Herbert found that physically gargantuan was not the only size that mattered most! Good sportsmanship and think ahead tactics were used by all three, as New One and RV ensured that their team mate put his own skills to the best use that he possible could do.

Little Herbert became adroit at using his own mental prowess and the size of his capability in this aspect was worthy of competing at every level. In helping to plan, shoot to New One and then share the physical challenge with RV, his own refined playing position became an essential part of his sport’s team. Having all believed at one time that sports games dictated what was needed most in any player, the three now felt that they themselves could put positive motivation and mindset at the heart of any challenge that they took on.
