Achieving your Athletic Development pt.2 - Focus
Focus, without it odds are you will FAIL in achieving your goals, whether in sport or business.
There is no sugar coating it, if you want to develop into being a successful athlete or business person you need to WORK & you need FOCUS. Under no circumstances can you allow others to disrupt your focus & force mediocrity onto you. Forget the fancy headphones & what music motivates you for training, if you need that, a pill, or a sugar laden energy drink for focus, then you currently lack the needed focus to become a champion. Stop deceiving yourself, steer yourself off the path of mediocrity that has overtaken the general population & correct your course immediately.
Success, achieving your goals of becoming a champion, and more importantly a leader / role model for your community should be the only motivation & focus you need.
“If you are going to be an athlete, you have to carry yourself as one and presuming that means you are still in your studies, you will apply yourself to achieve in the classroom. Yes, I know you are rolling your eyes because you have not heard that before but in my world, where I build champions, you will study, study diligently with a challenging course load, nor with detailed notes from an ‘assigned tutor’. Not everyone can be the star athlete that receives the loving praise for supporters but every athlete can finish their academic studies. Not every athlete can play professional sport but every athlete should leave the field of competition as a man and woman of principles, prepared to lead. That may be a surprise in an era that accommodates foul conduct for an elite athlete but it is about time for positive change. Welcome to the world of being a student-athlete and for that matter, a leader of tomorrow.” – John Davies
