It’s easy to envy the success of others while ignoring the sacrifices that made it possible.
You, athlete, have everything you need to accomplish your goals and win big. To become the best you can be – so that ultimately, you can leverage it for the benefit of your team, friends, family, and others.
But what do most people do?
They get jealous of others' results. They wrongly attribute the success to their genetics, their fortunate circumstances, and their “luck”.
What you and I could start doing is mirroring their moves. When you do this – when you imitate the actions and habits of those who make continual progress and reach their goals – you will find that the playing field is more level than you thought.
Do you want to be the best you can be?
Embrace the fact that excellence is mundane. What you do each day determines your destiny.
Mark Batterson said it this way – “Almost anybody can accomplish almost anything if they work at it long enough, hard enough, and smart enough.”
With that said, it's time to stop reading and start working. Let’s set the excuses aside and go out and win the day. What will you do with what you have today?
Dedicated to your success on and off the field,
Coach Andrew J Simpson
