What separates a truly great athlete from another who has trained just as hard? What do top athletes and centenarians have in common? How is it that some of the very best athletes remain at the top of their game well into their thirties and forties, while others peak prematurely? What can we do, day-to-day, to ensure that we become the best versions of ourselves while also living a long and healthy life?
The lessons sport teaches us can help us in many aspects of our daily lives, inspiring us to surpass our limits, face unimaginable challenges, and boost emotional resilience and intelligence. Sport also encourages us to persist in following our dreams, developing team spirit, knowing how to win and lose, and continuing to evolve and grow.
In Sport – A Stage for Life, Cris Pinciroli, a former captain of the Brazilian women's water polo team and the founder of the performance and happiness consultancy WeTeam, answers these questions and many more, sharing lessons from her life and career as a world class athlete and business executive. Also featured in the book are insights from Pinciroli's father, Pedro, a two-time Olympian water-polo player, and leading professionals in the sports world, science and academia, whose personal experiences and research corroborate Pinciroli's central message.
Together they comprise a kaleidoscope of practical advice and science-based tips covering nutrition, breathing, relationships, personal growth and development applicable to many aspects of life. The book is for everyone who seeks to live a long, happy and truly fulfilling life and leverage the full potential that is in each of us.
