Dr. Jerry Lynch wrote this – it’s a great tribute to the concentration, focus, humility and peace required to Accept how to become an athlete at the next level… whatever that next level is for you.
Grant me the serenity to accept my errors, mistakes, failures and losses,
Give me the courage to learn from these and change,
And afford me the wisdom to forgive myself, have self compassion, improve and go forward.
The price we all pay if we do not take this Yin-Yang path is to encounter harsh, rocky roads along the journey.
Sports is the perfect vehicle to help us cope with failure. After all, all that you’ve learned in life has been the result of failure. I call this the “success of failure.” (Dr. Jerry Lynch ~ 2019)
