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.
