Mind, Body, Spirit (Opening) – Matt shares how applying the lessons of visualization and self-development learned martial arts has been a template for his success. He discusses the role of sport in the integration of mind, body and soul.
“With extreme sports, it is so similar to martial arts. There is no team, it is about self-development. You are the one who is going to decide how good you get. I think we can use sport as a catalyst to develop our mind, body, and spirit.” – Matt Belair
Zen Athlete (14:00) – Chris and Matt talk about the Zen Athlete program. Matt discusses the importance of training the mind.
“The goal Zen Athlete is to popularize the mental game of sport. If you do any sport it is expected that you will go to the gym and train your body, but we know for sure that it is the mind is the thing that makes you the great athlete; the great person; the great human being.” – Matt Belair
I Am Enough (33:30) – Despite what we know to be true about ourselves, our monkey mind constantly tries to tell us that we are not good enough. Chris and Matt discuss this pattern of thinking and ways to overcome it.
