I’ve come to a point where I realize that money and materials in this world in any amounts are abundant and attainable.
However, the one thing I’m constantly running out of is time.
I don’t have that much time left in this world. This is a world of interesting novelties, but I’ve only been given a limited amount of time to explore it. Eventually I’ll be toast once my body is no more.
I find myself in unusual situations: I was one of the 1% of Hispanics at my university (FSU), I was the only American I met on my two-week winter visit to the Netherlands, and I’m a soccer player that only recently started playing but has undeniably stellar game. I’m unconventional.
I thrive in unusual situations because I stagnate in common, comfortable situations. I live for uncertainty. It makes me feel alive. It gets me going, it gets me acting, and it eliminates anxiety.
At the very end of a journey personal growth occurs if centeredness, process, and resilience have been practiced while living on the edge.
Being uncertain is challenging; it is important not to have expectations. It is about improvement and enjoying the process of living.
Philosophy of Soccer
Philosophy is just another word for self-observation.
Observe yourself. Where are you currently positioned?
You don’t have to move somewhere else now, but you can’t stay there forever. Where will you go next, and how will you get there?
That’s the simplest thought process in choosing your direction. It’s also the most efficient. It can be applied anywhere, from choosing your next meal to discovering where you will be in a few months. Like an 8-ball, you’ll figure out the answer.
With soccer, you won’t have to apply that thought process – I’ve already done it for you. Don’t try to absorb the entire article, because it’s just too much information. Instead, take away ONE idea and use it in your next game. It will save you SO much time and it will “shine the light”, so to speak.
Once you put these articles into action, there’s no telling how great you’ll be.
Security of Mindset
There will be forces along the way that will counter your direction. They will do your best to send you off-course. It’s commonly known as negativity because it’s negative to your momentum.
