-TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR TRAINING -
Want to be a winner? Want to maximize your chances of reaching your athletic dreams? Then start to practice the 10 most powerful words in the English language: "IF IT IS TO BE IT IS UP TO ME." This means that to be successful you must understand that ultimately, everything rests on your shoulders. In short, it is up to YOU to determine how far you go in your sport. You have to take responsibility for your training. Blaming coaches, teammates, the refs or lack of training opportunities is NOT practicing these 10 words. Winners don't look for excuses. Winners don't shoulder others with blame. Winners take responsibility for themselves and their actions. They understand that they alone have ultimate control over what they get out of practice and how far they go in their sport. What can YOU do today to get better? What can YOU take responsibility for that will help get you one step closer to your dreams. Don't wait for others to do things for you. Don't wait for others to screw up so you can cast blame on them. Don't look for others to blame for your failures. Instead look in the mirror. Be a winner. Remember, if it is to be, it's up to YOU!
