Isn't it easy to lose yourself in this world? Now even more so than 10 or 20 years ago. We live in the age of information where anything we want to know is at the end of our fingertips, quite literally. Social media lets us peer into the lives of so many. Comparison is easy, judgment is easier as we really are only perceiving the world with our own eyes and thoughts and creating a story around what we choose to focus on.
With sport comes the physical training; the greater influence is the mental training. Commitment, resilience, goal setting, visualisation, day in day out. If your going to the top you need to commit to all of that. But with it also comes flow, ease, enjoyment and most of all something that has dropped into my consciousness in the last few years, intuition. The instinctual feeling and knowingness that so often so many of us choose to ignore. In my mind, this is by far of greatest importance than anything else.
I'd arrived home to a heavy parcel in the mail. I was fairly certain it was the workbook and materials for the life-coaching course I was starting next month. Not having time to open it, I jumped in the car and whizzed off to my next appointment. Upon arriving, I had time to spare and tore the parcel open to reveal my books, a welcoming letter and small gift wrapped in pink tissue paper. My heart raced with excitement, I couldn’t wait to get started with this course.
