WRESTLING WITH YOUR FEELINGS. Being an elite athlete comes with rewards. People who work hard and dedicate themselves to their craft deserve the fruits of their labor. They train hard and make painful sacrifices to achieve their goals. The money, the fans, the praise, and the accolades come with being the best in your field. But what is the cost? What have you sacrificed to achieve your dream? Outside of your profession, are you able to deal with life and the challenges it presents? If you sacrificed your emotions in the process, you’ll have to figure out a way to make yourself whole again. We must make sure we’re at our best physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Often that takes just as much work as being great at our craft. For this Five Minute Friday, I revisited a conversation I had with Randy Couture about brotherhood in sports, emotional breakdowns, and the psychology of a professional fighter. Randy has fought in 16 title fights and has six UFC title reigns in the Lightweight and Heavyweight divisions. He also became the 4th pro fighter to be inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame. In addition to his stellar standing in combat sports, Randy is also a successful businessman, actor, and best-selling author.
