IF WE ARE TO GO FORWARD, WE MUST GO BACK AND REDISCOVER THOSE PRECIOUS VALUES—THAT ALL REALITY HINGES ON MORAL FOUNDATIONS AND THAT ALL REALITY HAS SPIRITUAL CONTROL.
—Martin Luther King Jr.
One of the most difficult breakthroughs in my athletic career occurred during a lecture on sports psychology at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. The expert who was lecturing that day advocated putting all of your focus into the event once the event has started—use the power of being in the moment with all your mental, physical, and emotional self. That sounds easy until you try to put it into practice.
