PT93: It Always Seems Impossible Until It’s Done

It always seemed impossible until it’s done. – Nelson Mendela

Hi, good day to you guys, I’m Marilyn Wo and this StarPlayer Academy. You are listening to PepTalk weekend, episode 93.

This thing about belief is mysterious because it hasn’t happened to you yet.

But you know what? As Nelson Mendela said, “it always seems impossible until it’s done”.

If you want to know if it can be done you need only to see it done in your mind, so that you can have the drive and motivation to keep you going on through the tough times.

Vision doesn’t come to you like magic, you need to intentionally find your dream and make it look real in your mind.

If you can’t see it, feel it, use any part of your natural senses to get in contact with it, even to taste it.

Grit doesn’t just come out of the blue, it’s a by product of our dreams, vision, desires, passion and belief.

So start with your desire.

If you want to play your best, see what you can do at your best in your mind, again and again, if it has to be a thousand times just do it, you will never know where it can bring you.

And as you step out there, it may dark, you may feel scared but you will always believe, you choose to believe if not why are you doing what you are doing. Choose to believe because that’s the best way for you to do what you love and best at what you love doing.

That’s how you become powerful, that’s how you dominate your day, that’s how you are different and be the best at what you do.

Give yourself the permission today to be at your best because nobody will do that for you. You take care of yourself, take care of the people around you, your teammates, your coach and your friends, and your result will take care of itself.

You may think it’s easy for me to say, but I’ve been there too, I’ve been at your place, working my butt off in the playing field in the heat, in the cold, wondering if it will all work out.

But you know what, it doesn’t happen if you wait and do nothing. People out there won’t make it any easier, why would they do that? Why would they do anything to help you? If there’s only one way out, it comes from your mind, your own self-belief, your hard work and how much you know yourself.

You are just here to give all you’ve got, the prize is your performance, not the result. Your prize is to know you’ve put out your best work, not when the game ends.

Dream it, visualise it, see it and act on it right now.
