As a sport psychologist my expertise lies in the area of human performance and what I like to call “The Psychology of Excellence”. The greatest barriers in our pursuit of this excellence are often psychological. Through the psychology of excellence, you can break through these barriers and find the courage to follow through with your vision. With greater ability to direct your mind and inspire your passion you can truly access the power within.
My philosophy on sport and competition may best be described by considering the myth of Prometheus. Prometheus is a figure in Greek mythology, and his name is associated with endurance and strength of will. It was written that Zeus gave Prometheus the task of creating man. In completing this task, Prometheus allowed man to stand upright, like the gods, so he could gaze upon the stars. Prometheus also lit his torch at the chariot of the sun and brought down the gift of fire to man. This fire provides us with light in the darkness and warmth in the cold. It also serves as the fire in our soul that gives us the ability to endure the human condition. We are all flawed in some way. We all struggle at times. We must all overcome obstacles. This fire allows us to survive, strive, and thrive throughout our lives. Each of us has access to this gift of fire…but not everyone knows how to use it.
