“Everything flows and nothing abides, everything gives way and nothing stays fixed.”
This blog is not designed to give you something to drink.
This blog is to make you thirsty.
Thirsty to go all out…every day.
One of the facts of life and peak performance is impermanence.
Nothing lasts forever.
Wins, trophies, money, vacations, sunny days.
We need to stay in the moment. Set goals, but enjoy the process of life. The process of our sport.
I remember a story about a master who held up a glass, while talking to a group, and said, “Do you see this goblet? For me this glass is already broken. I enjoy it; I drink out of it. It holds my water admirably, sometimes even reflecting the sun in beautiful patterns. If I should tap it, it has a lovely ring to it. But when I put this glass on a shelf and the wind knocks it over or my elbow brushes it off the table and it falls to the ground and shatters, I say, ‘Of course.’ When I understand that this glass is already broken, every moment with it is precious.”
Every day is precious…a gift.
Play every point like it’s your last.
Live every day like it’s your last.
It is then that you will have total awareness.
And it is then that your world changes.
Thanks for reading.
