Small But Mighty – Iceland Vikings Beat All Odds

Huh! for Iceland

The Iceland Vikings may not have been considered a major contender at the start of Euro 2016, but they are proving to be just that! The Vikings beat all odds this week, and knocked England out of the finals. On Sunday our mighty team will play host nation France, while the entire nation of Iceland will be watching. 

Small But Mighty - Iceland Vikings Beat All Odds

Small But Mighty

Iceland is a small nation, of just 332,000 people. When it comes to professional athletes, our football players have long been some of our most celebrated. Part of what makes our team’s success so unique, is that unlike professional athletes in most countries – our team doesn’t play for the fame or the money – but for the love of the game.

Case in point: While England’s football manager earns $4.6 million a year to coach his team, Iceland’s co-manager Heimir Hallgrimsson makes ends meet as a part-time dentist.

Finally I Faced My Fear

And It Was Totally Worth The Challenge!

When was the last time you had the opportunity to try something new, but declined due to your fear?

Whether your fear pertains to something specific, for me this would be my fear of heights – but sometimes the fear of considering something outside of our everyday routine can keep us from life’s limitless new opportunities.

For as long as I can remember, I have had an extreme fear of heights. This fear has kept me from traveling as much as I desire, from going on fun-filled excursions – and even from exploring my home country of Iceland.
