Those of you familiar with my Psycho Self-Imagery Principle know that when you are living a lie and your life is in disharmony, you will create negative events in your life. Such was the case with University of Arkansas head coach Bobby Petrino. It’s a generally accepted theory that fame and wealth often act as aphrodisiacs and could well be the reason he was having an affair with a woman half his age.  But in addition, he “knowingly mislead” the university and engaged in reckless behavior which resulted in his being fired from a job that was going to pay him $24.92 million over the life of his seven-year contract.  And it’s not over yet.  More than likely his wife, who is also the mother of his four children, will divorce him.  And the twenty-five-year-old employee, Jessica Dorrell, who was riding on the back of his motorcycle when they crashed, was given $20,000 by Petrino and no one knows why.  One has to wonder what she doing on the back of that motorcycle in the first place since she is engaged to be married to Josh Morgan, director of operations for the Arkansas women’s swimming and diving team.  So I would look for some additional negative things happening in her life as well.  And next up, Roger Clemens.


In the world of sports there are many athletes who are dealing with depression but few are willing to step forward and acknowledge it.  When they do, and receive help, it can have a powerful positive effect not only on their performance in their sport but in their personal lives as well. A case in point is New York Giants’ Offensive Lineman Shawn Andrews, who was a Pro Bowl performer when he was with the Philadelphia Eagles but is now making a comeback with the Giants. According to USA Today: “Even as a starter at the University of Arkansas…Andrews could sense that all was not right with his world. ‘I could see some signs even before I went pro,’ he says, ‘I didn’t know what depression was. I just held a lot of things in. I didn’t know who to talk to because I’d felt I’d get a biased opinion. So I just kept everything to myself. If you fill up like a balloon, it’s going to bust – boom!’
According to Andrews he took anti-depressant medication for eight months. He said his first visit to a psychiatrist helped because the doctor encouraged him to unburden himself by telling him everything that was bothering him. ‘It was a relief, man. ‘I’ll never forget it.’ Andrews looks and insists that he feels like a new man….’When I can go full speed, look out,’ Andrews says laughing. ‘Look out!’”  Watch for Andrews to go full speed during the coming season!
