Welcome Heroes

Most of us have had first hand experiences with sports activities. At one time or another we have looked for that hero within for some sport endeavor. In sports and life, we try and we succeed or fail; we persevere and we win or lose. When we put too much pressure on ourselves in sports, preparation becomes an impossible chore. We fall short of what we need to do. We often find that we underperform. We lose sight of that hero.

We get a different result if we embrace our sports and life challenges as fun. What happens if we approach the job like a small child who sets out to master a bicycle, a skateboard or a swing with joy and enthusiasm? Astonishing progress is made. Regardless of age, we need to recapture the enthusiasm and throw out the harmful self-doubt and pressure. We need to set our goals optimistically, whether they are for an Olympic gold medal or 12-minute mile walk—whether we want to lose 50 pounds or gain a stronger hold on life.

Our goal at Sporting Chance Press is to provide entertaining books that can give readers a lift in sports and in life. We publish books that give readers insight into the hero within each of us. When sport is at its best, there is a payoff constantly taking shape – a payoff "at work." We are improving—whether it is building self esteem, improving health, developing strong social skills, or learning the habit of achievement. There is a discipline needed in preparing for sports contests and life contests. Getting our bodies and minds in shape for the competition is critical. If we can approach sports training and life with enthusiasm, the contest is pure joy. If we can approach sport and life with passion and not pressure, we can achieve and release that fearless hero within.
