Are you living or are you alive?

I study athletes and most are in their sport, but few are into their sport.

What’s the difference?


If you are in your sport, you are participating.

If you are into your sport, you are passionate.

Most athletes focus on the past and future.

The best athletes focus on the present moment.

One of my favorite things to do is mental cross-training.

Physical cross-training is working out your body to make it tougher.

Mental cross-training is working out your mind to make it tougher.

One way to mentally cross-train is to do something new.

It could be trying a new food.

It could be trying a new hobby.

It could be being extremely nice to someone you cannot stand.

See if it makes you more present, alert, alive.

Most people are living, but they’re not alive.

Practice, play and live more mindfully and you may be pleasantly surprised.

This will help you stay in the present moment and that is where greatness lies.
