I watched this video this today and I had to chronicle it within my blog post. Almost all athletes want to be the best or grow in skill level but not all of them understand what it takes for you to get to that better state. You gotta always push yourself to the next level. The athlete in the video below is an example of just that.

If you want to be great at your sport you have to push pass what you think you can’t do!

“The only barrier to being better than we are is that we have to exceed our self image.” – Scott Peltin

Whenever you are making that journey you will always feel uncomfortable. It’s a new habit. So sometimes, as Mark Battersons said, “the right place seems like the wrong place, and the right time often seems like the wrong time.” Fear is like the cartoon below always drawing lines but you gotta keep crossing!

“I think at the end of the day what you really have to to do is you have to look fear in the face and you just have to smile…” – Charlotte Brown

But…. This is not […]

Mile 137: (Question 3) Dealing with the rising emotions from the murder of George Floyd: a performance psychology strategy perspective.

I never thought that this process would have opened up the amount of deep conversations I’ve had with friends and colleagues because of what they’ve read in these posts. I appreciated every connection. Before I get into answering my final question in my process, I want to mention how inadequate what I’ve said and am […]

Mile 137: (Question 2) Dealing with the rising emotions from the murder of George Floyd: a performance psychology strategy perspective.

I have meditated on part 1 of my performance psychology strategy of analyzing my internal world because of our current cultural climate for a few days now.
