Greetings from Smrikve... Sve najljepše... Auguri 2020

Dear Smrikve friends,

It is greetings time… time to stay with loved ones… make wishes and time to dream about new destinations to reach that may bring you and your family joy and energy…

To have a dream is always beautiful… and to have people, family, friends who dream with you and who share your dream is even more beautiful…

I wish you all to make your dreams true in the long run… and I can promise that we will also do our best to keep improving in different directions… remembering that each of your visit was and is for us a source of inspiration… and the inspiration is always that invisible force creating another good year in Smrikve…

25th Smrikva Bowl 2020 edition is already envisaged as an impressive year of talents the same as the Smrikva Bowl Tennis Talents Family Weeks for 2020 (scheduled for 2 weeks: 25/4/-2/5/ and 3/5 – 10/5/). SBTTFW is always a very special learning experience for me… together with my friend Luca Appino we keep looking at the tennis fronteers of tomorrow and next year weeks will be another long term development gift to our alumni.

As of today combined Smrikva Bowl children track record includes:

• 31 junior GRAND SLAM titles (conquered by 24 players)
• 41 professional ATP/WTA titles (conquered by 11 players)
• 47 players reached TOP 200 ATP/WTA ranking => 24 players reached TOP 100 ATP/WTA ranking => 8 players reached TOP 20 ATP/WTA => 2 players reached TOP 10 ATP/WTA ranking
• 200+ players received scholarships to study in the US & play tennis.

If you could look only a year or two years back you would be impressed how big is the increase in numbers above and I am glad to foresee how impressive our human life tree is going to be in just five years from now.

People who walked for a little by my side knows that I appreciate cartoons. They always help me in comunicating with children. Understanding their language is a treasure for me… and treasure is always greater when shared… therefore for the end of this year greeting letter I wish to introduce Master Oogway from Kung Fu Panda cartoon, being myself a big fun of it, since I was blessed to get in a closer contact with Asian culture thanks to my wife.

To those not familiar with Kung Fu Panda… Master Oogway is an elderly tortoise, highly venerated for his wisdom, knowledge, and experience. Oogway was considered by many to be a sage, a kind of Star Wars’ Yoda. He was greatly respected by Shifu, the Furious Five, Po, the entire Valley of Peace, and all of China.

He was known as the greatest kung fu master in history, with no other reputation surpassing his. I have to say that recently I discovered Ip Man, Bruce Lee’s kung fu master, and Master Oogway is that kind of a leader who lead by example. He dedicated his life to preserving the art of kung fu as a force for good and passed on this and many of his other teachings to his students. In the small remainder of his life, he had the chance to finally locate the Dragon Warrior before he ascended into the Spirit Realm.

May the following Master Oogway quotes on success inspire you and be a gift to you to make real your next year wishes ;)

• “If you only do what you can do, you will never be more than you are now.”
• “It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be.”
• “Your mind is like this water, my friend. When it is agitated, it becomes difficult to see. But if you allow it to settle, the answer becomes clear.”

I hope you enjoyed the gift :)

Happy holidays and Happy New Year!

Mio


Dragi prijatelji i poznanici Smrikvi,

Prosinac je vrijeme čestitanja, vrijeme želja… vrijeme koje se provodi uz svoje najmilije… a i vrijeme za sanjanje i osmišljavanje novih destinacija prema kojima krenuti, i koje bi mogle donijeti nama i obitelji neku novu radost i novu energiju…

Sanjati je lijepo … ali imati uz to i ljude, obitelj, prijatelje koji sanjaju s tobom i koji dijele tvoj san je još mrvicu ljepše …

Želim da se vaši snovi ostvare … a isto tako obećajem da ćemo se i mi nastaviti usavršavati i truditi u najrazličitim smjerovima … pamteći da je svaki vaš posjet bio i jest za nas izvor inspiracije … inspiracija je uvijek bila taj nevidljivi kotač-sila koja nam pomaže u stvaranju i osmišljavanju još jedne dobre godine u Smrikvama …

25. izdanje Smrikva Bowl 2020 se već može razaznati kao još jedna impresivna godina talenata a isto se nazire za nadolazeće Smrikva Bowl Tennis Talents Family Weeks 2020 (predviđena su ukupno 2 obiteljska tjedna: 25/4/ – 2/5/ i 3/5 – 10/5/). SBTTFW je jedno posebno iskustvo… zajedno sa prijateljem Luca Appinom nastavljamo promatrati i zamišljati teniske granice sutrašnjice… tako će i nadolazeći susreti biti još jedan dugoročni dar za razvoj naših polaznika i obitelji.

Već danas djeca Smrikve posjeduju impresivan životopis:

• 31 juniorskih GRAND SLAM titule (koje su osvojili 24 igrača)
• 41 profesionalnih ATP/WTA titula (koje je osvojilo 11 igrača)
• 47 igrača je dostigla nivo TOP 200 ATP/WTA => 24 igrača je dostiglo TOP 100 ATP/WTA => 8 igrača je dostiglo TOP 20 ATP/WTA => 2 su ušla u TOP 10 ATP/WTA
• 200+ igrača je dobilo stipendiju za studiranje u SAD-u zahvaljujući tenisu

Ako bi mogli pogledati ove iste brojeve samo godinu ili dvije godine unazad bili bi impresionirani koliko brzo se povećavaju… i drago mi je što se već danas nazire koliko impresivno će biti to ljudsko stablo života za samo pet godina.

Ljudi koji su malo hodali uz mene znaju da sam ljubitelj crtanih filmova. Oduvijek mi pomažu u komunikaciji s djecom. Razumijevanje njihovog jezika je za mene blago… a blago je uvijek veće kada se dijeli… tako da za kraj ovogodišnje čestitke želim predstaviti meni dragog učitelja Oogwaya iz crtića Kung Fu Panda… postao sam njegov ljubitelj, a za to se moram posebno zahvaliti supruzi i danas malo većem poznavanju azijske kulture.

Onima koji nisu baš upoznati s crtićem Kung Fu Panda… učitelj Oogway je jedna starija kornjača visoko cijenjena u svome društvu zbog svoje mudrosti, znanja i iskustva. Mnogi Oogwayja smatraju mudracem, vrstom Jode iz Ratova Zvijezda. Izuzetno su ga poštovali Shifu, ljuta petorka, Po, cijela dolina mira pa i cijela Kina.

Bio je poznat kao najveći majstor kung fu-a u povijesti, ničiji ugled nije nadmašivao njegov. Moram podijeliti da sam nedavno otkrio još jednu legendu, Ip Mana, učitelja od slavnog Bruce Lee-a, i mogu napisati da je učitelj Oogway vrlo sličan vođa koji vodi svojim primjerom. Oogway je svoj život posvetio očuvanju kung fu-a kao sile koja širi i štiti dobro, a to i mnoga druga učenja prenosio je na svoje učenike. U njegovom životopisu se može pronaći da je imao uspjeha i u pronalaženju zmajskog ratnika prije nego što se pridružio duhovnom svijetu.

Rado dijelim nekoliko mudrih izreka učitelja Oogwaya o uspjehu da vam budu moj poklon i inspiracija na putu ostvarenja vaših i obiteljskih želja za sljedeću godinu.

• “Ako činite samo ono što već znate, nikada nećete biti bolji nego što ste sada.”
• “Nije važno što je netko po svom rođenju, već je važno ono što postaje odrastanjem.”
• “Tvoj um je poput ove vode moj prijatelju. Kada je uznemiren, teško je vidjeti. Ali ako dopustiš mu da se umiri, odgovor postaje jasno vidljiv. “

Nadam se da ste uživali u poklonu :)

Sretni blagdani i sretna Nova godina!

Mio


Cari amici di Smrikve,

E’ il tempo degli auguri… il tempo per stare insieme con i propri cari… il momento per sognare, fare dei desideri sulle destinazioni da raggiungere che possano portare a voi ed alle vostre famiglie gioia ed energia…

Avere il sogno e’ bellissimo… ma avere gente, la famiglia, amici che sognano insieme a te e condividono il tuo sogno e’ ancora piu’ bello…

Desidero che realizziate i vostri sogni… e posso promettere che anche noi continueremo a migliorare in ogni dirizione… ricordando che ogni vostra visita era ed e’ per noi una fonte d’inspirazione… e l’inspirazione e’ sempre quella forza invisibile che crea un’altro buon anno a Smrikve…

25.-esima edizione dello Smrikva Bowl del 2020 si puo’ gia’ scorgere come un’altra annata di talenti… cosi’ anche posso gia’ dire per il Smrikva Bowl Tennis Talents Family Weeks 2020 (ci saranno due settimane: 25/4-2/5 e 3/5-10/5). SBTTFW e’ sempre un’esperienza di crescita per me… insieme all’amico Luca Appino cerchiamo di osservare la frontiera tennistica del domani ed anche le settimane dell’anno che viene saranno nuovamente un regalo per la crescita ai nostri alumni…

Ad oggi i risultati conguinti dei ragazzi Smrikva si possono descrivere come:

• 31 titole juniores dei GRANDI SLAM (conquistati da 24 ragazzi)
• 41 titoli professional ATP/WTA (conquistati da 11 ragazzi)
• 47 giocatori hanno raggiunto la classifica TOP 200 ATP/WTA => 24 giocatori hanno raggiunto TOP 100 ATP/WTA => 8 giocatori TOP 20 ATP/WTA => 2 giocatori TOP 10 ATP/WTA ranking
• oltre 200 ragazzi hanno ricevuto le borse di studio grazie al tennis per studiare e giocare negli Stati Uniti

Se poteste vedere qusti stessi numeri di soli uno o due anni inditro sareste impressionati di quanto siano cresciti… e mi fa piacere poter gia’ d’ora scorgere quanto impressionante il nostro albero della vita nei prossimi soli cinque anni diventerra’…

La gente che mi conosce un po’ sa che apprezzo molto i cartoni animati. Mi aiutano sempre nel trovare il linguagio per parlare ai bambini. Capire loro linguagio e’ per me un tesoro… ed e’ un tesoro ancor piu’ grande quando condiviso… cosi’ per la parte finale della lettera di auguri di quest’anno vorrei presentare il Maestro Oogway del cartone animato Kung Fu Panda, essendo un loro grande fun da quando ho avuto fortuna ad avvicinarmi un po’ di piu’ alla cultura orientale grazie soprattutto a mia moglie…

Per coloro che sono meno familiari con Kung Fu Panda… spiego che Master Oogway e’ un anziana tartaruga… venerate e rispettata per la propria saggezza, conoscenza, ed esperienza. Oogway era considerato da molti un saggio, una specie di Yoda delle Guerre Stellari. Era molto rispetato da Shifu, dai Furiosi Cinque, Po, da tutta la Valle della Pace, e da tutta Cina.

Era conosciuto come il piu’ grande maestro di kung fu nella storia, nessuno superava la sua reputazione. Devo dire che di recente ho scoperto Ip Man, il maestro che insegno’ kung fu a Bruce Lee, e Maestro Oogway era quel tipo di leader che guida con il proprio esempio. Oogway ha dedicato la propria vita nel preservare l’arte di kung fu come una forza per il bene e la tramando’ ai propri alievi insieme a molti altri insegnamenti. Nel ricordare la sua vita, ebbe finalmente la possibilita’ d’identifacare il Guerriero Dragone prima di salire nel regno degli spiriti.

Spero le seguenti citazioni in merito al successo di Maestro Oogway possano ispirare anche voi e che siano un dono, una guida, verso la realizzazione dei vostri desideri per l’anno che viene

• “Se fai solo quello che puoi e sai fare, non sarai mai piu’ di quello che sei ora.”
• “Non importa cio’ che qualcuno nasce, ma cio’ che diventa.”
• “La tua mente e’ come quest’acqua, amico mio. Quando e’ agitata, diventa difficile vedere. Ma se gli permetti di diventare calma, la risposta diventa chiara.”

Spero vi sia piaciuto il regalo :)

Buone vacanze e felice anno nuovo!

Mio
