Lauren Burns – Fighting Spirit

Lauren Burns’ Fighting Spirit is a great autobiographical recount of a champion’s challenges and as the book’s title extolls, her fighting spirit. Even though I am not a martial artist, the play-by-play analysis was beyond my interest, the self-analysis and honesty revealed was quite remarkable and refreshing to read as she let us into a […]

What can I say? It all started with a nail biter I lost 10-12. I felt confident I could win this match. The next game went my way with an 11-8 win that wasn’t decisive, but it was a solid game. The next game was all over the place, he took it 9-11, once again […]

Match #3: 2009 World Masters Games

Well it happened again – I was up 2 games and then lost the next 2. But now I know what’s going on. I am in-between several improvements in my training and when I play to win, I win and when I let up and play not to lose I actually don’t win… It’s a […]

A champion gets to know the ‘ins and outs’ of his/her body. The more in tune you are with it, the better you can get it to perform when you it most. That being said, a colleague and top equestrian Caylene Vincent sent me the following stats that I am sure you will find both […]

What It Takes To MAKE You Into A Champion Can PREVENT You From Becoming One

It’s one of life’s paradoxes. What it takes to MAKE you into a Champion can PREVENT you from becoming one. That is a really deep thought. One worth reflecting on. You need the DRIVE AND WILL TO WIN, but that very drive and especially ego can PREVENT you from the goal you so aspire to […]

Mastery Is All About Self Awareness

I recently played with a squash Champion who recaptured his self-awareness his name is Dr Malcolm Simons. He was a squash legend in his day, I posted his results in this blog post on MasterMind Groups. Anyway… getting to the point – I was on the court with him and we both got a priceless […]
