It Has Nothing To Do With Age provides self-help principles. The inspirational stories give concrete illustrations of overcoming many of life's challenges. Difficulties pertaining to depression, grief, divorce, and death are presented and worked through by the participants. Physical impairments, injuries, overcoming issues with weight, alcohol, and nicotine are also dealt with and resolved by the athletes.

This book provides a model on how to overcome some of the difficulties that confront all of us . Further, this read sheds a beacon of light on preventive measures for good physical and mental health. Research demonstrates that exercise is an important component in treating such ailments and debilitating illness such as depression, stroke, heart disease, brain or cognitive malfunction,and Alzheimer's disease.

I suggest that proper exercise can be used as a preventive measure for psychological, cognitive, and physical health as well. Follow my prescription and lead a better, more fulfilling, and healthier life.

"We must walk consciously only part way toward our goal and then leap in the dark to our success."– Henry David Thoreau

Last week’s television interview with professional football player Mike Keller was a blast. I had a lot of fun and Tony is a great partner and provided a lot. In some ways it was like three comedians on a reality TV program.  On the serious side, we learned that Mike’s competitiveness was related, in part, to his mother’s competitive spirit.  According to Mike “she had everyone paddling fast and was always striving.”  For example, when he was four years of age, he challenged his mother to a foot race. Of course she didn’t let him win and said “when you get faster come back and we’ll do it again.”  So one of Mike’s strong points or his edge was his ability to run faster than anyone else. It was his speed that allowed him to win the battles that took place on the line of scrimmage for this All-American linebacker. He also learned that players had to play supposedly with pain and not with injury. However, he gave two examples of when Jack Youngblood played on a fractured tibia and his Cowboy’s teammate Walt Garrison played with a damaged clavicle. Players were told to “take a couple aspirins and get out there and play.”   There was plenty of humor and laughter as well as information on mental toughness. You can catch this program on this Blog.  This week’s TV program will feature Tim Twietmeyer and Mark Falcone and their ideas regarding mental toughness.
  Yesterday, Chris Turney, Tony and I ran the trail for about 10 miles. I was pleased that I didn’t experience discomfort to my Achilles even traversing Maine Bar.
I have been interviewing Fritz Seyferth regarding mental toughness for my current projects (next book). He is an interesting man to say the least. This man has scored a touchdown in the Rose Bowl; played professional football; was the assistant athletic director at the University of Michigan; and currently consults with coaches and business executives.
Fritz recently spent two weeks in the wilderness with Red Baron(Berenson), the hockey coach at the University of Michigan, couple of recent hockey graduates and a couple of other men. Red’s group was flown into the wilderness near the Blood Vein River and left there with canoes, tents, food, saws etc. . Their mission was to make it back to civilization.
