Beating the Odds

The Power of You

A quick post today before the holiday weekend. I just saw a wonderful quote from Plato. It goes like this: “The first and greatest victory is to conquer yourself.” It sounds like my favorite quote, which is “Some people think the battle is against others. The winner understands the struggle is within the self.” People really don’t appreciate how much power and control they have over their destiny. You can control these three things: What you do. How well you do it. How often you do it. Aristotle said, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.” Some coaches discuss the mental game as if it were separate from the physical game. Here’s something to know: Acquiring skill is ALL a mental game.
