Your Athletic Quest Is A Personal Journey

When you approach your athletic quest as a personal spiritual journey of sorts, you will find a deeper joy and fulfillment which will also bring you to an experience and results that will surprise you.

How do you approach your athletic quest?

Our modern western world clouds us with numbers and comparison to others as the goal and worth of our athletic quest.  However, ancient wise teachings (around the world) focus more on the personal spiritual aspects of athletics.  The funny thing is when you shift to the personal spiritual focus you receive much superior performance results far surpassing what you currently imagine.

It's funny how things work isn't it.

Frank ~ that is so fantastic how you told them to approach things!  I did an interview with Navajo Ultrarunner Shaun Martin who is also a High School Cross Country coach and he talked about the same thing.   He talked about telling them to run to make themselves stronger and better themselves personally. Sounds like you did something similar.

Kristen, I have coached high school athletes for over 32 years and have always told them to approach every game, match or competition as a personal challenge, not between them and their opponents ,but to do their very best because they should always focus on the reason they compete, not to win. Same thing in old man terms?
