    This one is probably the best I’ve taken in the past few years living in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
    It was shot during Loy Krathong festival.

    I used to get upset with every little failure I encountered & worried a lot that I might fail again… One day, my father told me, “If God is not giving you something that you want, that implies that he has better things in store for you.” This, till date, has been the wisest learning of my life. That particular moment transformed my thought process & made me a much more optimistic person that I am today.

    From a young age, while she held me in her arms, mom always told me to NEVER give up. She once told me the story about two dogs in a cage fighting over a piece of meat. She explained that both dogs were equal in size and strength. She then asked me which of the dogs would end up eating the piece of meat. After many attempts I couldn’t come up with the right answer. “The dog that wants it the very most gets the meat,” she replied. Although this is just an illustration, I believe it serves an important lesson about life and it’s many obstacles. Often we are confronted with opportunities that promise to provide new gains and challenges that threaten to take away what we have. My mother’s advice to never give up has remained deeply engrained in my heart and mind. In short, if you put yourself to the test and give it your all, you will accomplish things you never imagined possible. Thanks, mom.

    ….It’s like being human…who does not find themselves somewhere along a continuum of emotional detachment?  No one…  Perhaps the question is “what is it like growing up with parents who are pathologically self-absorbed and emotionally unavailable?  Pretty lonely, frightening, and confusing, I imagine….

    I prefer to use the expression “resistance training” to weightlifting, as this seems to broaden the “playing field” with regard to the various ways we can strengthen our muscles and connective tissues in preparation for our respective sport…

    The more serious we are about competition sports, the more important it is to engage in resistance training in a “sport-specific” manner.  In other words, to keep this simple, if you intend to excel as a marathon runner, it would be absurd to design your resistance training regimen with the goal of producing massive amounts of upper body strength.  Perhaps this is all too obvious…

    We must ask ourselves if we are training to be efficient and tough in our sport, or are we training to be generally strong, flexible, healthy, and functional?  The latter sounds more like what I call “wellness."  To be our at our best for our respective sports, there always seems to be a higher risk of injury due to overuse and over-training…  Still, competing, and sometimes winning, can be lots of fun, so mindfully strengthening ourselves with resistance training can help us win AND help to prevent injury.

    The best way to know that your training is responsible and productive is to ask for help from a professional.  If you don’t have such resources, the best thing to do is learn to listen to your own body - particularly your energy levels…  Any great training program involves intelligent biomechanics (during the actual resistance training), mindful eating and nutrition, and rest & recovery…

    Make sure whatever you are about to "hammer” has fully recovered from the previous training, make sure to cross-train wisely, think “sport-specific,” and, most important, have fun and don’t get too obsessive about the whole thing.

    PS: Here’s an important hint regarding soccer, frisbee, and sprinting:
    All three sports require a fairly high degree of cardiovascular endurance… I realize that various positions on the soccer field require different sorts of talent… Halfbacks, for instance, are generally going to require a lot more endurance than a fullback or goalie.  Sprinters, on the other hand, have very powerful legs, their upper bodies are lean but powerful, and their anaerobic conditioning is incredible… All three sports require a great deal of mobility, and your muscles must all learn to “speak to each other…"  In other words, make sure you don’t train to have pretty, puffed up muscles - train such that you are developing an integrated, functional body that moves through its core…
