The Mindful Athlete
George Mumford | 1:00:05
But it is my great pleasure this afternoon to introduce you to George Mumford. And George is here joining us today to talk about his book, which you can see right here, the mindful athlete. And some of you have a copy of in front of you. And he's here to share some of the wisdoms and love and wisdom and lessons in his book.
But even more than that, to share some of who he is, with all of you. And one of the things that I was really struck by when, when reading George's book is what an extraordinary life you've had, and the extent to which you've been listening your whole life. And it's that listening, that really struck me that you've been, you know, you you watched messages coming in, sometimes you, you took the message right away, other times, you let it sit for a couple of years. And but when you were ready, you went after it.
And you really paid attention to what was around you took from teachings from many, many people, and then found a calling around sharing those teachings, and helping other people listen, and learn for themselves. And your, your story is extraordinary, your your humility is just as extraordinary. And we're just so lucky to have you here today to share some of your thoughts with us and experience. Some of you will know George by reputation for the work that he's done with professional basketball stars, if you're a basketball player, you know, all the names Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, and so forth.
