David helps people align with what is uncertain - when we have quick change. now time is compressed because change occurs quickly. The future is leaking into the present which causes fear and anxiety. We create interferences with the connection to mindfulness. Being mindful of the obstacles that get created during times of stress. Davids new book, Game Time Decision Making guides readers in learning how to know their values! Take inventory daily on personal, experiential, giving and receiving values. When the pressure is on, great coaches remain laser-focused, confident, and fully in charge of their roster. They’re the same way when it comes to developing strategies and game plans to succeed. In short, they always win because they have a superior decision-making process. Focus on three things - Skills. Knowledge. Practice. Clear away the interference between you and what inspires you! Then, clear the interference between you and others. Receiving - at this time, so many people are having to open up to receiving help that they are not used to receiving. Nobody has a problem with giving, but they forget how to receive. Remember to feel amazing when receiving because that is a gift to the giver. David has learned to receive and allowing others to give. Nothing was "for" him but "through" him. This is why he has the motto "Make a lot of money. Help a lot of people. Have a lot of fun!" So many people have an issue with the money part but David reiterates the truth of money in this existence. It's a tool. How you use it is up to you. Shop for the right things! What can you buy to help others? Money is the currency of this vibration level, and because David has made lots of money, he still has all of his employees right now. How can he be of value when someone asks him for financial assistance. He asks questions to find out how he can be of value and then he asks how he can get help to speed up his own ability to help and expand his giving. With no sports, David recommends trading one game for another. What other games can you enjoy with your family? Take it to a personal level and figure out how you can come through this in the most positive way. Find the light, love and lessons in sports and make them attributable to what is happening now.
