  • Today’s Monday Mindset: Complete Surrender

    I’m here at Reagan International Airport in Washington, DC, about to fly to New York City. It’s 5:00 AM and last night at 10:00 PM, I didn’t know I’d be getting on a plane bright and early this morning.

    Sometimes life throws you a curve ball, something you weren’t anticipating. If you want to know how to handle any situation that comes your way in life brilliantly, here’s how..

    Practice complete surrender.

    I learned this throughout my basketball career when situations would come up that I hadn’t anticipated.

    An injury, a coach’s decision, a frustrating situation with teammates.

    Throughout your athletic career, there are many situations which will arise that test your ability to either hold onto things (and get bitter, frustrated, worried) or to let go of things and surrender the outcome. Surrender what didn’t happen.

    Didn’t play well in the game? Let go of it.

    Practice complete surrender.

    In order to practice complete surrender, what we have to do is trust that life is working for us, not against us. Assume things are ultimately working in your favor.

    If you put this into practice, you’ll be able to let go of all moments from the past or what you’re worried about in the future. Trust that things will ultimately work out as they should, and for your good.

    Put this into practice with any situation which comes up or that you’ve been holding onto.

    Practice complete surrender.

    That’s your Monday Mindset.
