Good day Athletes, I’m Marilyn Wo and this is StarPlayer Academy. You are listening to PepTalk weekend, episode 101.
I know, sometimes you just feel like you’re never good enough, that you aren’t sure if you can pull it off when you have to.
I feel this way at times and the only way to this is to tell yourself to focus on what you are doing now to anticipate what comes next. If there’s anything you can or should do, is know what you want to create next and do something to make that happen.
Your game is like a mini life, a short story of cause and effect, and you don’t control the after effects but the cause at every moment.
There may be hundreds and hundreds of people out there who say you can’t do it, but I can give you a hundred good reasons why you can do it. Why agree to only one reason when one person can give you more? Why trust what they say when you are the one going on to the playing field? Why are they not the ones working in the dirt instead? If they say you are not the best to be here, then get them to play, get them to show they are better.
We want not the best in the world, but the ones who can put in their best today.
If you find it hard to find that belief in yourself that you can be the best today, let me tell you the bad news. Nobody can do that for you.
Good news is, you will definitely find it today. You will shut out what the world says about you and everything that you decide to do is between you and the game, nothing else matters.
If the world is going to end now, you will not live to see what happens, so why bother about the result?
If we live by time, we give our best shot at every moment in time knowing there’s nothing left behind.
Live by the little moments which will add up to your greatest moment at the end of the game.
So many times we braved the rain and the cold to practice and practice and practice. So many times, we hurt ourselves just to make sure we give more than we can give. What’s so different today?
Maybe today more people come to watch us, maybe today is a test of our training, maybe today is a test of us against the rest. So many maybes, you get the point, it could be anything. Anything can be different from our usual practice, anything can change. But one thing inside of you stays the same, that whatever changes, it’s always for the better.
Look forward to every challenge ahead, because you know going through it will make you a better player every second of your game.
Today, whatever we do, every pass we make, every shot, every stride, we strive to make it better than before. We may think it’s good, we may think it’s bad, nobody is to judge. If there’s anything to prove, it’s to prove to ourselves that we can do better than that.
Today, you don’t care about what the world thinks of you, they have their own problems to care about and you’ve yours.
We conquer every moment, that’s the only job we have today.
