Chalk Talk

Perfect Time Zone

RealChalkBoard_picture

Who’s time zone do you LIVE in?
Man’s time zone is practically ‘instant’. You see it… you want it… Click a button or two ⌨️ and you can get it within a day! But, then there are the things we can’t see; Tomorrow, Next week, Next game, Next season, College, Relationship’s, Career, Marriage?
These things you cannot know in an instant.
Should you stay in man’s time zone you might stay frustrated.

The Bar

The Bar.

It’s laying right in front of you flat on the ground.  From there… it cannot get any lower.

You stand with your feet right up to the edge of the bar.
In front of you are two poles with notches on them, each notch representing something related to goals or dreams.

You have many options;
You can walk away from your goals and dreams.
You can bend over…

Your List

Scoot up and listen up and think about this…

What you have is nothing unless you; use it, let someone else use it, sell it, or you give it.

Take time to think about why you have what you have… and what you will do with it.

This Chalk Talk encourages you take inventory.

Make a list of what you have.

Breaking down tape / life

img_6483

Alright, scoot up and listen up.
I would ask that all Basketball, Baseball, Soccer, Hockey… and all sport outside football forgive my using the football model for this Chalk Talk.

Anyone that has ever played sports on a serious platform has studied tape.  Coaches and teams spend hours and hours breaking down tape.  They do this by taking the tape of the previous game(S) footage and cutting it, or editing it, into sections,

I know God will give you someone that pushes you for 10 more. #10more
I would love for you to read about my someone, Andy Anderson.  “Andy Wouldn’t Let Me” available in paperback and e-reader!

Two unlikely worlds collided at midfield.
Seniors on the same football team, Andy and Bryan barely knew one another before the season’s opening kick-off.

TO: _______

FROM:  You

I have always been fascinated with the feeling one experiences giving a gift vs. receiving a gift.
As a child I remember wanting gifts, and of course I remember receiving gifts… some I wanted. other’s maybe not so much, but it was still exciting to receive them!
As I began writing this blog post today I got excited?

The Bench

Proverbs 11:2 When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom.

 

Who wants to sit on the bench?
Who wants their friend’s, peer’s, parent’s to come to a game and find them sitting on the bench?
Moreover; who wants to put in all the work, lift the weight’s, practice, train, put on weight, take off weight, starve, run, sprint, hit, or put in hours studying tape (of the next opponent to imitate) …

TWO TREES

 

There are so many analogies rooted in trees.
The Bible alone talks about the Tree of Life 10 times.
We use the tree for a wide range of things both in analogies and realities; climbing, fire wood, paper, shade, landmarks, rope swings, postcards, framing houses, log cabins, fruit, and on and on.
Me?
Any of my close friends would tell you that I love trees!

Eat Twice a Day

RealChalkBoard_picture

Alright scoot up and listen up.

As athletes we need to pay extra attention to what we eat.
We get very specific about how we fuel and re-fuel our bodies.  We base our nutrition according to what type of things we do daily per our sport, position, or event.  We need all the help we can get, right?

And, for those of you who follow the Chalk Talk Blog and Podcast,

Use It


Bring it in… scoot up and pay attention.
See this dude here… the one holding the umbrella?
Let’s talk about him and the obvious things we see about his condition and situation;

1.  It’s obvious it’s raining.
As a matter of fact, we could say it’s pouring.

2. We can also note that this guy is prepared… right?
This person has obviously been given a gift, a tool..
