Challenging beliefs

July 21, 2017

Fifty percent of what we teach is wrong. The problem is – we don’t know which 50% it is. The wise person spends a lifetime trying to figure out which 50% is which.

Until it is disproven, accept that for which the evidence appears solid and logical and free of covert or overt conflicts of interest.

Unfortunately, industry is driving what you believe in many, many things.

Your thoughts and beliefs matter

January 18, 2015

Your thoughts and beliefs matter. Your surroundings ― the people you spend time with, the places you frequent, and even the things you read ― all influence you. Even the words you use matters. The story you tell yourself shapes your actions, and when your story is only about limitations, failure, and doing less, that’s your world. That’s what your actions will reflect.

You might surprise yourself with what can happen when you get away from poisonous thoughts and poisonous people. Likewise, the best way to shape your beliefs is to hang around other people who believe and act the way you want to act. That means a team or training group or a good coach. At the least, it means immersing yourself in the activity, living it and breathing it.
