Athletes who receive unconditional love throughout their lives are those who perform at a high level. The love produces enhanced feelings of self-worth which, in turn, is the foundation for performance. And American Olympic star Simone Biles is a good example. According to her bio on the Internet, “She and her sister, Adria, were raised by their grandfather Ron and grandmother Nellie, after their mother’s struggle with substance abuse. Ron and Nellie eventually officially adopted the two girls, and Biles calls her grandmother ‘Mom.’ Nellie has been a constant source of support through Biles’s rise in the world of competitive athletics; as the gymnast told CNN, ‘She encouraged me and never let me feel down about something for too long.’”

How can you tell if an athlete has high self-esteem? There are a number of ways: They have xcellent eye contact, they don’t withhold (that is, they don’t keep their feelings bottled up inside themselves which is a form of lying but rather speak up when they have an opinion about an issue even if the issue involves their coach) and they have compassion for other peoples’ plights in life.

So if you’re a parent and want your children to be successful in life, give them unconditional love. The problem is that unless parents have received it themselves, it is very difficult for them to pass it on to their children.

I just finished watching Tiger Woods’ apology on CNN and he unquestionably did the right thing and he did it in a sincere, honest fashion.  Though I don’t agree with what he did, I do believe people deserve a second chance and as it is so often said about the American public, they are very forgiving – especially if you bear your soul to them and are completely honest, which Tiger was.  The only thing that irked me was immediately after he finished, a couple of “dorks” on CNN – one of whom was supposedly a sport psychologist – made such stupid negative statements about Tiger’s apology that it boggled the imagination.  It reminded me of what Kant the famous philosopher once wrote: “What Peter tells you about Paul tells you more about Peter than it does about Paul.”  The comments those two so-called analysts made told me more about them than it did about Tiger.  And by the way, now that Tiger has cleared the air, when he returns to the PGA Tour, I predict he will be better than ever – which hardly seems possible.  Assuming, of course, that he’s happy and that his life is in harmony.
