What has your physical life taught you about the game of life? I refer to this as Mindful Movement and the spiritual supplements for your athletic soul (or is it sole?)

"Those who are firm and inflexible are in harmony with dying; Those who are yielding and flexible are aligned with living" Tao Te Ching #76.

Inflexible teeth crack, soft tongues are pliable. Hard pasta thrown against the wall breaks, cooked noodles stick in one piece.

To live more vibrantly, be flexible, notice the flow of life and blend with it. Soft is, indeed, strong. http://buff.ly/1QQyAIT

Grateful people are happy people. Before you jump out of bed in the morning to take on another day, think of 5 things you are grateful for today including being alive. Your health, your friends, family, work. Get the feeling of being grateful and breathe it into your heart and hold the breath for 4 seconds and do it three times. Then in this relaxed state go about the rest of the day and make it a reflection of all you have been given.
When we are happy we will have a good day and perform well. FROM GR8FUL 2 GR8.

I live by the adage, "THERE IS A WAY." When you follow your heart, there will be doors that open where there weren't even doors before, so says Joseph Campbell. In his classic book, “The Alchemist”, Pablo Coelho reminds us that on the journey across the vast desert, caravans will cross our path in opposite directions and they will have just what we need at that moment to continue on our path.

ON COMMITMENT - The German philosopher, Goethe once wrote: "until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back. There is one element of truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans and that is: the moment one commits, providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help you that never would have occurred... incidents, meetings & assistance which no one could have dreamed would come his way". It's OK to not be committed. It is probably a sign that it is time to move on to something else. One of the ways I can sense a lack of commitment on my part for an activity is how my performance with it consistently falls below my potential.

Wu Shi... The Warrior Spirit in Chinese. The symbol Wu shows a spear at rest, the warrior who does not need to battle to be a hero. Shi represents the civilized person of limitless potential. Taking these symbols and applying them to modern day warriors in sport they indicate one's willingness to push past your breaking point, have no regrets, and work hard even when others are not looking. You must accept responsibility, remain accountable, and strive to win BUT you do not need to win to be successful. Opponents are accepted as partners and you understand that soft is strong and less is more as you think outside the box. As a warrior you become comfortable with being uncomfortable, you are willing to sacrifice and suffer and accept failure, loss and setbacks as your greatest teachers of all time. YOU ENJOY THE JOURNEY and let the outcomes be the by-product of your efforts and preparation. This is WARRIORSHIP, a creative "heart-mind set " for all of life through sports.

Have you ever noticed how animals instinctually know how to use stillness in nature. They all meditate. The heron poised motionless on one leg, the snake basking on a trail in the warmth of the sun, a cat lying on a pillow, eyes focused on one object. To mimic these creatures consider a practice of meditation, a quiet place to clear and free your mind. Focus on the natural movement of your breath, in and out over and over. If you wander off, just say to yourself  "wandering...come back"  then follow the breath's natural flow. There is an ancient adage that says: If you know the art of breathing, you have the strength, wisdom and courage of 10 tigers. Meditation is simple, powerful and helps you to be more present in daily life. BUt you must be consistent. My books all have exercises and instruction for meditation practice.

Shang Shan – the Chinese expression that suggests ascending to the mountaintop to escape the chaos, confusion and pressures of daily life. From the top you can look down and get more understanding from being above it all. The top is a meditative sacred sanctuary that provides peace, relaxation and clarity of thought. I have loved running to mountain tops for over 40 years in Colorado and California... now I really understand what that was all about. I have solved problems, answered questions and made clear decisions from my perch high above the craziness below. When I return, I am better able to navigate the turbulent waters of life.

Realize that your influence is NEVER neutral, never. You have the power to light up a room or cast it into darkness, just by your presence. Your voice, tone, inflection, eye contact, hand movements and all other non-verbal communication determines how others respond to you. Being aware of this simple concept can change your day if not your life. Ask yourself before entering a room, a meeting, a conference, a relationship... How do I wish to influence this situation? What impact do I wish to have in this circumstance? Then do all you can to use your influence for positive outcomes and awesome results.
