My open letter to every young athlete


Dear Athlete,

Here’s something I'd like to share with you that I’d wish someone would have told me when I was growing up and playing sport.  Fact is, like it or not, you’re not going to play your best or the way you’d like to, every time you step out to compete. In fact, sometimes you won’t even win playing your absolute best either.

Here's the reality:  You will have more days that you ARE NOT going to play the way you’d like to. Part of the reason why athletes get so down on themselves is due to their expectations and the fact that they want to play ‘their way’ every time they step out to compete. The truth is – it’s impossible.
