[reflections] on Seven Days in Utopia

I was recommended by a friend to watch the movie, Seven Days in Utopia, and did so during my recovery after are my reflections on this movie:

Why do you do the things you do?  The first step is to find conviction.  Every champion has convictions.  But perennial champions have convictions based on foundations.  The foundations become his first line of defense when facing adversity.

Rhythm.  Balance.  Patience.  That is what you need to stay in your game.  Focus on the feel, rather than the outcome.  It takes emotional control.  Keep your emotions in check.

If you are going to play like a professional, you have to act like one.

I have respect for tradition, but a passion for the truth.

You have to be ready for the unexpected.

SFT = See it Feel it Trust it.

What do you want people to say about you when you're gone?  It will say something. 

You're coming here wasn't an accident.  Only you can decide what to do from here on out.

Don't Thank Me...Thank Him.  There is a still small voice in each of us, if you listen.  God is leading us, talking to us.  You can see God's face, feel His presence, trust His love.

Life is Life is about Faith.  Relationships.  Character.  Integrity.  God has a purpose and calling for you.  These truths are your of life.  Take the truths with you.  Bury the lies.  Lies of your true identity, your self worth, and failures.  In our culture, a high premium is placed on success, achievement and performance.  What controls your life?

Gifts are meant to be passed along.

Utopia a place of mythical perfection.  Utopia is indeed real. It is a place where the voice of truth resides.  

Does it really matter?  How can a game have such an effect on a mans soul?

Additional thoughts from

Are you looking for more in your life?

A world obsessed from putting people on a pedestal.  No one was made for a pedestal, the weight of glory was reserved for One.  I am a child of the one who is the greatest Champion.  Be a revolutionary.

Never follow tradition for tradition's sake.  Follow the One Voice of Truth.

I don't play for acceptance.  Excellence is my coach.

When you walk in your purpose, a trophy pales in comparison to the fruit of your wake.
