Football season has begun and again, basketball season is about to start soon and baseball is wrapping up their long season.

Every year people buy alot of jerseys, food and tickets to watch their favorite teams duke it out! Some fans are loyal and cheer their teams on even though the teams may not have had a winning season for years if not decades. Real fans will cheer regardless, just for the love of the sport.

Here are a few thoughts that may either sting or be a eye opener.

If your friends find it easier or worth the effort to consistently cheer on their sports team but encouraging you is a chore, they aren’t true friends.

If your friends find the energy every year to cheer and be emotionally invested in a sports team that is filled with strangers but don’t cheer for you and your endeavors, change friends or recognize that they aren’t your closest friends.

If your friends are lifelong fans of teams that chronically have losing seasons and that doesn’t deter them from trying to encourage them by yelling to the top of their lungs, then the excuse that you may be taking too long or that your efforts are useless in your adventure or personal development is just that – excuses!

Real friends just like real fans still hope for the best and still cheer for the good plays accomplished. They may dislike the mishaps but they don’t go anywhere and they still are deeply invested in the outcome of your every attempt towards winning!

The question I want to ask is, “Which kind of friend are you?” A Real One or one by Proximity?

Mile 137: Who am I to say THIS about Cancel Culture! iS IT TRUE?

This new space in our culture called “cancel culture” where any person who disagrees with the growing popular perspective or have made a misstep verbally or behaviorally, whether in the present or in the past, can be cancelled (i.e. have economic means negatively impacted) is the epitome of a self-defeating movement. 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. I’ve gotten to speak with some friends, pastors and business folk about their pov and listened to some podcasts. I’m trying to get different vantage points so I […]
