For any Athlete that has big goals and dreams in their sport…
Whether they desire to one day make a Varsity team, or go on to play in College, or even the Pros…
I can promise for every Athlete - there will be setbacks, adversities, and obstacles along the way.
The longer an Athlete plays - the greater the failure and heartbreak they’ll need to learn to endure.
Because nobody has an easy path to making their dreams a reality (and why so few ever do).
I teach the Young Athletes I mentor to separate the “facts” from the “story” they make up in their own minds.
When working with a player who has hit a huge roadblock…
Whether they’ve been injured, or have been cut, or aren’t getting the attention from the Colleges they desire…
In those moments - they share with me the facts of the situation AND also a story of what it means about them and their future.
And too many Athletes “make up” a negative story - explaining how and why they’ll never get what they want.
It’s then - I encourage them to write a new story.
To literally pull out paper and pen - and write out the story of why this obstacle is the exact reason they went on to live their dreams.
To imagine themselves months, or years into the future when their dreams have been achieved…
Seeing themselves as the HERO of this story.
And as I remind them - we don’t pay money to go watch movies where the hero gets it all right every time.
A hero needs an adversity to overcome - to show us they’re true Heroes.
This is your time - your moment - to become the Hero.
Write down the facts, your doubts, and your fears.
Then use them all - to create your story of redemption.
And visualize that story - make it a movie in your mind that you play day after day.
See you - as the Hero. See you - as the BEAST of your life.
