Go read your 12 Steps. "Higher Power As We Understand It". If I turn myself
over to the "higher Power", the mental resources devoted to the
Self/Identity/Ego process are released, possibly allowing better
performance. For example, a Higher Power might be defined as "My Totally
Focussed Functioning".

For an athlete interested in Olympic goals, I suspect they have little time
for the stuff we discuss on this list - so "God" is merely an acronym. (My
POV, not the athelete's)
