“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.” – Ernest Hemingway
Today, I got a little philosophical about winning a medal and achieving what we as athletes have set ourselves up to do. As much as being an athlete can benefit us in many ways, a lot of us do not have the grit to persevere and make things work before quitting way too early.
Many athletes I know think of sports as waste of time when they couldn’t see they could arrive to stand on the podium. Where there’s only one spot to get the prize, the money, the fame, where being second means failing, they never understood what’s the point of even being in the sport.
You can call this episode the “mindset” episode, but it’s more like a prelude for us to ease into creating the “system” to drive our athlete journey into autopilot.
