You are more than...Your Past Self (Part 1)
You are more than...Your Past Self (Part 1)
You are more than...your past self. This week we dive into our GLORY DAYS (cue Springsteen)! As athletes it is really easy to compare ourselves to what we used to be: before we were injured, when we had a different coach, or when we were on a different team. While it is ok to celebrate where we have been, we can't let it ruin where we are or discourage us from where we are headed. Britt and Sam dive into their own struggles with comparison and how they have learned to really appreciate and embrace the present moment. So whether you are rehabbing from an injury, learning a new position, or joining a new team, this podcast is for you and your teammates! Listen in and follow-up next week for Part 2 where we look at the parts of our past we are not so proud of!Books:Into Your Hands, FatherInterior FreedomSt. Faustina's DiaryTakeaway:"When I look into the future, I am frightened, But why plunge into the future? Only the present moment is precious to me, As the future may never enter my soul at all. It is no longer in my power, To change, correct or add to the past; For neither sages nor prophets could do that. And so, what the past has embraced I must entrust to God. O present moment, you belong to me, whole and entire. I desire to use you as best I can. And although I am weak and small, You grant me the grace of your omnipotence. And so, trusting in Your mercy, I walk through life like a little child, Offering You each day this heart Burning with love for Your greater glory."  - St. Faustina's Diary, Entry 2---------"Leave the past to God's Mercy, the present to His Grace, and the future to His Will."How to Share This:Recognize in your teammates or friends when they are dwelling too much on the past. Help them refocus on the "next pass" or next opportunity in sport and in life. Support the show
