The Author of The Way of the Peaceful Warrior, Dan Millman, has done it again in yet another book Called; The Warrior Athlete-Mind, Body & Spirit; Self-Transforming Through Total Training. Dan Millman was an Olympic Level Gymnast who over came his fear of heights as a child to become a world-class athlete. Dan gives us insight into the realm of Eastern Philosophy, Martial Arts and combines these with athletic excellence.
As a coach in later years Dan makes some astounding advice to athletes, trainers, coaches and those in all walks of life on how to over come their fears and seek success in any and all their endeavors. You can learn how to use these principles to overcome any challenge and they are so simple that it is hard to imagine anyone actually reading this book not doing these things to advance themselves, their family or their team.
In The Warrior Athlete-Mind, Body & Spirit; Self-Transforming Through Total Training, Dan Millman makes a rather interesting statement is made regarding the pressures on an athlete when he states;
"Give me this pressure, show it to me and then perhaps I can help you get over it"
Of course the athlete cannot show him the pressure or stress he is feeling and thus it is not real and if it is not real, then why worry about it. The athlete in question agrees and goes on to give a star performance. The book is filled with such tid bits of real world sports psychology. I would recommend reading this book twice.
Read it through once and then read it again and outline all the important points to help you in your life, sport, business, relationships or career. I certainly hope this article is of interest and that is has propelled thought. The goal is simple; to help you in your quest to be the best in 2007. I thank you for reading my many articles on diverse subjects, which interest you.
