Mind Over Sports


Posted on: June 25, 2012

What do these four professional athletes have in common: The quarterback who throws three interceptions and fumbles the ball twice in a single game; the basketball player who turns over the ball four times, misses free throws and goes 2 for 12 in a single game: the baseball player who strikes out three times, makes two throwing errors and goes 0-5 at the plate in a single game; and the golfer who keeps hooking and slicing the ball, misses short putts and shoots five over par. Most fans and sportswriters might say they just had an “off day” but I believe it’s more than that. The common thread among these athletes is that they have problems and issues in their personal lives that, for whatever reason, they’ve chosen not to resolve. As the great baseball manager Casey Stengle once said: “Most ball games are lost, not won.” And in mens professional sports, here are some of the reasons: Being unfaithful to your wife, anger at a teammate, anger at a coach, repressed feelings and emotions, finding out your girlfriend is pregnant, family problems at home, and a belief that you’re being punished by the Lord.  That’s why it’s important that athletes not repress their feelings and emotions.
