Many of you reading this are Americans, and as such, are not necessarily soccer fans, but before it ended last Sunday, the 2010 FIFA World Cup soccer championship offered a wider-than-usual range of behaviors from athletes, trainers, coaches and national ministers of sport. I'm thinking in particular of the crisis in interpersonal relations on France's 2010 World Cup soccer team. It's not typical for a team to more or less self-destruct before viewers' eyes, but France's team came as close as you can to doing that.
As a recently Certified Subconscious Restructuring® Coach/Counselor, I find myself noticing when people spontaneously program the subconscious mind to get much-needed answers. One such example came across my desk today in a 1985 Texas Monthly article on aging gracefully by Liz Carpenter, the journalist, speechwriter, and activist in the women's movement in the 70s. I know, 1985 was a long time ago, already! But Mrs. Carpenter passed away this Saturday and a friend forwarded the article.
