Breakthrough Your Best Performance
I just viewed a video of another astonishing ‘breakthrough’ in human performance. It’s astounding when records are broken but phenomenal when they are totally shattered. This was in college basketball and it took place not far from where I grew up. It seems even more impressive when you feel a bit of relationship to the event. This took place in Grinnell, Iowa. I played basketball in Iowa…12 points in 2 years. This young guy scored 138 points! Watch the video and see if you aren’t as impressed as I was.

Wow! What a great video! How did he do that? One thing he did not do was out guess himself. I don’t know his background or experience, two things stand out.
- 138 points is a lot of points in any league…Never done before
- It was 90 point more than he had scored in any other basketball game
He said that at half-time he thought he had scored about 3o points. In reality he had scored 54 points. He also mentioned that he was coming off of a low scoring week-end and coach and teammates wanted him to pick up the pace because of upcoming play-offs. Wow! He did “pick up the pace”! Accolades must also go out to his coach and teammates for the totally unselfish team effort that supported their common goal.
March 2, 1962 in Hershey Arena Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points in one game. That record was fantastic. ((before the 3-point rule too)
Let Go to a Higher Inner Self
Success leaves clues. Tracking the clues that makes the difference in reaching success or not i, however, not as easy when we see a breakthrough of such proportions. What we are doing at a conscious level has to become sub-conscious to us.
