A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face she inquired, “How heavy is this glass of water?” The answers called out ranged from 8oz to 20 oz. She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If i hold it for a minute, its not a problem. If i hold it for an hour, i’ll have an ache in my arm. If i hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer i hold it, the heavier it becomes.” She continued, “The stress and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them for a big longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed - incapable of doing anything.” Always remember to put the glass down. — (via laborfuerdiesinne)

Sportsmanship wasn’t always his specialty. When Manning was five and his coach pitch team lost every game by about 20 runs, the coach would invariably tell the boys it was a tie. “He thinks we’re stupid,” Manning griped to his parents. “It was not a tie.” When he was eight and Archie coached his youth basketball team, they sparred because Archie drafted his friends’ sons even though many of them couldn’t shoot. Archie vowed never to coach him again. When Peyton was 12 he had a new basketball coach with a curious substitution pattern. After one loss, the coach told the team, “The reason we didn’t win the game is because you weren’t ready to play.” Manning pointed a finger in his face. “No,” he protested, “the reason we didn’t win the game is because you don’t know what you’re doing.” Archie drove him to the coach’s house that night, in tears, to apologize.

Contrast that image with the scene in the visiting locker room at Sports Authority Field after the Broncos’ 38-35 playoff loss to the Ravens in double overtime. Manning, coping with another round of January heartbreak, waited to congratulate retiring linebacker Ray Lewis. He held little Marshall’s hand, setting the example that his dad set for him.

Most things about me are hard to explain, I guess, like how I’m mostly delusional and live in a half-imaginary world but am also a realist to the core. I’m just a bunch of contradictions most of the time and I don’t like it, but I also do. — (via beyazsumbul)

Jimmy Fallon’s NFL Superlatives [video]

Jimmy Fallon’s NFL superlatives

If you ask what’s been my secret of success, most might say it’s my God-given athletic ability to throw a football. While talent is important, it’s not necessarily the most important thing. Thousands of talented people fail every day. My strength has been my will to win—that competitive fire inside.

—John Elway
