Being an athlete isn’t something you decide in a moment out of the blue. You must have the zeal to push forward, and work towards it. There is plenty of homeschool online that has programs tailored for young athletes which means you don’t have an excuse unless you don’t have the passion for it. I will briefly explain the reasons but also wanted to explain to you, what does the particular reason with you as an athlete and how he can spoil the competition for you.
So, in this article, I’m giving you the reasons why as an athlete you’ll never reach your goals.
You don’t believe it
You will think this is a truism. Any guru, any self-proclaimed hobby psychologist, can say that.
But is it that easy? Is it that easy to say “Okay! Accepted, from now on I believe in myself!” No, unfortunately, it isn’t. It can just go; it can only be there for a moment. But if the belief in your vigor isn’t there, it is incredibly difficult to get your best in the competition.
But don’t you believe that you will attain your goals? You don’t need to start the project at all. Why waste power, time, money, and energy when your target is already doomed to failure anyway?
Therefore, it is essential that you first set a vision that is far away, but your inner voice still tells you that you may not be able to achieve it and secondly that you have intermediate goals on the path that serves as motivation and evaluation.
You Run after the Goal
Often, athletes want everything at once and immediately. They don’t desire to wait until they get what they want, but they want the victory, the best time, the success, the medal immediately.
But what can happen if you follow the target? What happens if you always aspire to give 110% and not just let things happen? As an athlete, you will never reach your goals.
You’re trying too hard, too much, and too cramped, but instead of getting it done, each attempt will be even more unlikely, with every competition it becomes more impossible for you. You have to break this cycle and remember contests where you merely did, rather than just trying more and more.
