      Beyond a 10! One of my favorite articles to date. So well written, I was captivated and taken to the depths of what is humanly possible. This is SO exciting, truly inspiring and motivational.

        Pegeen, I agree. I’m always amazed at the mental aspects of sports and physical feats but he takes it to another whole level. Impressive how he continued after his mother’s disappearance in the depths.

      The key is to snap his attention back to the present moment, to train his brain as vigorously as he can train his body to almost physically overcome his thoughts and hold his mind in a state of nothingness and nowness. “I feel how my attention can get broadened in time and space,” he says. “I can be thinking about the future, I can be thinking about the past. All these thoughts everywhere. We have that a lot in life. But if I was just to pull them back into the now moment, pull my thoughts back, really physically, that's the technique that feels like a technique that can be learned. When I practice it a lot, it's like an arm movement. Physical. You just pull it back. And you get your attention to the shortest possible time moment.”

      This one goes deep (🙃) on the sport and its current flagship athlete! Enthrallingly written.
