My Way Is My Decision

Tina Maze (“mah-zay”) is a modern day renaissance woman from Slovenia who appears to possess the Midas touch.  To begin with, she is a fearless Winter Olympics gold medal winner who has won the World Cup 23 times in virtually every discipline of skiing (e.g., Downhill, Super-G, Giant Slalom, Slalom, Combined).  And yet there is so much more to this intriguing young woman.

She is arguably the most well-known person in her country and a much beloved global celebrity with a million watt personality that is accentuated by her fluency in four languages.  She is a highly sought super model whose beauty is alluring and mesmerizing to many, and she is an impresario in marketing a wide variety of products — from clothes to cosmetics to jewelry to skiing equipment.

She is a notoriously free-spirit who is known to do the unexpected and unconventional, and is certainly unafraid to confront controversy head-on.  And if that wasn’t enough, she is also a “triple threat” entertainment talent as a singer, musician and songwriter, with a #1 hit song, My Way Is My Decision (her music video is reflected at the bottom of this blog posting). This song reveals a magnificent dynamo psyche and provides insight to a unabashed winning attitude that has enabled her to accomplish so much so soon.

In a word, she is an INSPIRATION.

The lyrics to My Way Is My Decision are also reflected below.  As you listen to this song, you will likely realize they encourage going places and doing things no one has dared (“trailblazing”), facing adversity (“daily battles”) head on, never giving up on your dreams, deriving inner strength from a clear vision, overcoming fear with unbridled enthusiasm and reaching for the stars to inspire others.  The overriding message is thus: Be NOT afraid to do things “YOUR WAY” pursuant to an empowering vision that guides you toward self-actualization . . . and have as much fun as possible along the way.

Reflected immediately below is a clip on one of Tina’s downhill races, where one cannot help but marvel at her strength, tenacity and desire to excel in an exceptionally dangerous sport while cognizant she “dares to be tender” with unmistakable femininity.

If ever there was an exemplary figure as “the total package” of infectious inspiration and enthusiastic drive to live life to the fullest, Tina Maze might very well be it.

My Way Is My Decision

Every single day
Is a battle I know that I’m meant to face
I’m on a trail I’m meant to blaze
Tomorrow before me.

I’ve gotta do it, no matter what
I’m a woman on fire!
Gotta try to be strong
And getcha shouting c’mon, c’mon, c’mon!

(Uo-oh-oh-oh)
Take a look at me now,
‘Cause I’m living my dream!
I’m gonna dare to be tender
And never gonna surrender!
(I’m in control and my)
My way is my decision!
My power is my vision!
Ooooo-oh!

Smiling through the tears,
My desire’s a weapon against my fears.
I wanna be a tale they tell over the years,
To inspire the world.

So I’ve gotta be stronger.
I’ve gotta prove I’m a winner.
(I am the winner!)
Lead ’em into the light.
I’ve gotta show ’em all that I’m right!

(Uo-oh-oh-oh)
Take a look at me now,
‘Cause I’m living my dream!
I’m gonna dare to be tender
And never gonna surrender!
(I’m in control and my)
My way is my decision!
My power is my vision!
Ooooo-oh!

I’m gonna dare to be tender
And never gonna surrender!
I’m gonna dare to be tender
And never gonna surrender!

Uo-oh-oh-oh
Uo-oh-oh-oh

(Uo-oh-oh-oh)
My way is my decision!
My power is my vision!
My way is my decision!
My power is my vision!

(Uo-oh-oh-oh)
Take a look at me now,
‘Cause I’m living my dream!
I’m gonna dare to be tender
And never gonna surrender!
(I’m in control and my)
My way is my decision!
My power is my vision!
Ooooo-oh!
My way is my decision!
