Dig Down Deep™ is restructuring into a 501c3 nonprofit organization with a revamped mission.

Fist Pump Gallery


"A fist pump is a euphoric phenomenon after "X" tapped into C (coping skill), that helped "X" manage B (block), which allowed "X" to obtain A (accomplishment). A person must learn how to assertively adapt, improvise, and overcome episodes of adversity, conflict, and turmoil by mentally, emotionally, and physically enduring and persevering through inescapable resistance in order to thrive. Athletes must dig down deep in the heat of competition to win; People must dig down deep in the game of life to succeed. The deeper we dig, the higher we soar." © - Kirby Maus

The Wise and Foolish Builders

"As for everyone who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice, I will show you what they are like. They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. But the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete." - Luke 6:47-49 (NIV)

Sport & Life in Psychotherapy

"We play by the rules. We show up. We are teachable. We are coachable. We warm up. We ask questions. We listen. We set a goal. We plan. We focus. We execute. We do our best. We crawl. We walk. We run. We have fun. We practice. We slip. We trip. We fall. We get dirty. We play hard. We attack. We defend. We get knocked down. We pick ourselves up. We keep score. We take timeouts. We receive feedback. We gain insight and awareness. We pivot. We take a risk. We get uncomfortable. We feel. We resist. We breathe. We sweat. We push on. We pull through. We do brave and courageous things. We finish. We win or lose. We laugh and cry. We shake hands and hug. We respect. We reflect. We are accountable. We grow. We are thankful for the opportunity. We are grateful for the experience. We accept the result. We move on. We don't have to be good to play. We just need to dig down deep." © - Kirby Maus
