Professional athletes are a unique breed of people. They attract millions of followers and harbor athletic skills and expertise that most only dream of having. From mainstream professional leagues like football, basketball, hockey and baseball to elite tennis players, Olympians and so on, they spend their lives pursuing childhood dreams that end up beating enormous odds. At the end of the day many of them end up making millions and millions of dollars but somehow, through it all, happiness and peace of mind are so fleeting for them. So often it seems that these are the individuals caught up in drug abuse, alcoholism, anger issues, crime and the list goes on ad nauseam.
When looking at the emotional toll that professional athletes go through we must consider that, since the body, mind & spirit are all immensely intertwined with one another, the physical rigors these athletes endure can surely affect them on many levels. Then consider the immense pressures of having to live up to the expectations set upon them in order to justify astronomical salaries and money on the line, and to some it is simply too much.
