Rarely do I find inspiration from footballers. But Sydney Swans’ Captain Brett Kirk is a very rare professional athlete. This is his daily affirmation:

As a human being I’m honest, I’m passionate, I’m courageous, I’m disciplined, I have a concentrated mind, I’m compassionate, I’m aware, I’m a good listener, I’m patient, I’m tolerant, I’m fun, I’m adventurous, I’m loving and I’m affectionate, I’m kind, I’m responsible, I am love. I don’t get caught up in my thoughts, I don’t give control to my ego, I don’t dwell on the past, I don’t worry about the future, because the only moment we have is this moment right now.

As witnessed on Judith Lucy’s Spiritual Journey, 2011. You can catch all the episodes on iView here (this was taken from Episode 5). Judith, thanks for making TV that changed my life. xx

I’m off to draft my own mantra. How about you?
