Experienced athletes understand there are always different ways of doing
the same thing. Different motivations, different purposes, different
techniques. The know their golf swing could change if it isn’t working
well, their kick could have a different technique if they need to adjust.
Just as often they ask themselves ‘why am I playing this game’. They
need to find new motivation, new reasons. It used to be ‘love of the game’
now it might be ‘secure my financial future’ or ‘the camaraderie of
my fellow athletes’.
Why can’t we do that outside of athletics. Be aware when a reason isn’t working
any more. Be able to find new reasons, new purposes for living and doing and
acting in the world. Asking, searching, looking, paying attention, being open,
those are the elements that can help you find those new reasons when you
need them. Be an athlete whose sport is living.
