With specializes in coaching for a stress anxiety.
-- performance for athletes -- is also a contributor in my lifestyle magazine who.
-- thought provoking article in the recent issue on dealing with depression and substance abuse Joseph well welcome to the segment thanks for having me let's go back to the TV interview that he did recently about what was your reaction looking at the -- market and tells about his body language.
My reaction is the -- essentially said what he felt he needed to say.
I I believe he he thinks he needs to resurrect his career on some level this was the right thing to do.
How is disappointed.
In terms of -- motion.
I didn't see a lot of contrition in his voice or -- in his body language except when he talked about his children he got emotional which is that.
But the nice thing to see obviously but it also exemplifies his -- this is -- in my belief that he didn't really show a lot of emotional contrition when he came to the other people.
Whose life he hurt -- in some cases destroyed.
It's thinking of emotional impacts what what does the the psychological effect that it has on society when a hero becomes a -- Well he can be devastating for society and especially devastating for children.
Children who could do the right thing.
Who play sports and and and do it -- to clean fashion in play.
Played by the rules so to speak and they see their heroes basically.
Going gets everything they were taught.
So -- -- has effects across the board I think there -- questions about.
Children India flying athletes should do what we might talk about a little bit later but I think it has a devastating effect especially on the kids.
Throughout that you think of society creates and -- are realistic expectation of but I got -- sports figures this actually gets back to my previous point I think we do have.
-- extremely unrealistic expectations.
Sports figures are at it in essence entertainers.
Sports are big business whether -- be in professional sports or even on the collegiate level.
We have to realize that I think sometimes we we suspend belief because we we use sports is a distraction which is fine but I think we need to see -- what it actually is.
And some level I think the children need to learn about that as well -- scandals are coming out left and right.
With athletes and I think it's time that you know we really spoke the truth.
To this situation.
Joseph we've been getting a lot reader feedback on our social media like FaceBook and Twitter.
And what a lot of people want to know is how do you know when an obsession gets.
Where it's really troubling how do you know when it becomes a toxic obsession.
Well frankly I think any obsession is toxic I think there's there's a distinction between being disciplined.
Having a strong interest it in in in a subject or strong interest -- -- hobby strong interest in the sport.
But when you become single minded.
About anything in this case what one could argue that Lance Armstrong had that single minded approach but was willing to do anything and everything to win.
That kind of obsession can be destructive in more ways than one because you don't have balance in your life.
You basically you're thinking about.
The activity before you're doing it you thinking about it during the activity usually thinking about it afterwards and you excluding oftentimes excluding.
The people in your life who matter the most your loved ones -- family of friends so it's extremely toxic when you can get obsessed with any subject with any.
We're getting our question for one overrated in my life Palmer center of the question isn't you'll have a secret how -- you confident things -- face and it.
Well I think when it comes to -- greats I think the benefits of revealing the secret have to outweigh the benefits of maintaining it.
That's -- key.
I think it.
For for many people will hold on to secrets as long as they can.
That gets that Dick -- comes a point where it becomes just what I said.
The benefits don't outweigh the benefit some of maintaining it -- help outweigh the benefits of revealing it.
And you know the expression coming clean I think we've all experienced that there is -- cleansing.
Aspect to really.
Coming clean and really sharing.
Yourself in the shoes fashion that you can but everyone does that -- their own pace everyone has a different personalities that would to lead them to get to that place.
Where we're coming clean -- -- that matters more than holding onto the secret but ultimately.
Ultimately that has to be distinction when you when you feel better revealing -- act as opposed to holding onto it.
They -- the only -- -- secrets correct exactly yeah exactly -- -- -- for your expertise.
