Too Young to Quit
Athletes seeing that they are capable of 20X more than they ever thought. Your abilities truly are limitless once you decide and focus.
One of the best parts of the whole weekend was a young athlete all of 16 years old. He was hanging tough but had his ups and downs.
In one of his lower moments he decided to quit. The instructors first talked to him and tried to rationalize with him. He would have nothing to do with that.
A sage instructor – old and wise told him “Get back in line – your too young to quit”. This was all he needed as he walked back to the group. At that same time the whole class rallied around him like a wolf pack would to protect their young. They picked him up mentally as they told him he could do it and they would all be there to have his back.
The group left the scene from there and went on to the next event.
Sometimes you have to get over yourself. Get out of your own pain. Have someone else tell you that there is no other way and you must stay on the course.
I took that info and rolled it in my head. So true. Growing 1% daily. Learning.
Decide today what you will do to not quit on your current goal. No matter the cost figure out how you will stay in the game when the going gets tough. Write that down on a 3 x 5 card and put it on your dream board or on your mirror. Only share it with someone who will support your dream.
