beyond your dreams
"Stretch yourself," advises Dick Helm, the Assistant Coach of the Toronto Raptors. Mr. Helm has been a coach of some kind or another for 40 years. Interviewed today by Chuck Swersky on Sports Spectrum Radio, Mr. Helm offered some insights I'd like to paraphrase here.
"You never arrive," he said, speaking of being ready to learn something new each and every day. This would suggest that there is value to remaining teachable, in one's pursuit of peak performance, if one is to really be alive.
He said he tries to encourage players to stretch themselves. "You can go beyond anything you dreamed," if you will, he said.
