I have been reading about power training recently and that got me thinking about athletes and how driven they are to win, to be the best, they are chasing their dreams.
It made me think about a blog I posted a while ago about goal setting, your plan and contingency plan for success. You can read it here > http://freedomintraining.co.uk/uncategorized/goal-plan-contingency-success-2
There will have been people along the way that tell athletes to give up their dream, get a real job, that they won’t amount to anything – read some of the autobiographies and you will see that repeatedly.
But something stops them from listening to the negativity. Something inside pushes them on, and drives them to competition.
Many fail, but they get up and go again, they don’t give up the fight – Michael Jordan is famously quoted ‘I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.’
Set your goal, make a plan, have a contingency plan, keep trying and you will get your success.
When things go wrong, pick yourself up and try again a different way and keep doing that until you find the way that works for you.
How often do you get back up and try again?
Goal + Plan + Contingency = Success
Have a good day, and get back on the plan even if there is a side step.
