  • Going for Your Dream - Though his dream is threatened and presumably lost, Millman searches within himself to continue to follow his dream.
  • Imagery - Through learning to harness his mind though mental preparation, Millman prepares his body to return to the sport he loves.
  • Keeping Sport in Perspective - The teachings of the movie's spiritual guide, Socrates, force Millman to consider the meaning of sport and where it fits in the grand scheme of life.
  • Peak Performance - Putting sports, life, and relationships into perspective, Millman seeks to use his mental strength to take his performance to new heights.
Other thoughts: Read the book for the full experience, but the movie itself provides a wealth of great sport psychology points of discussion.
