This isn’t a sentimental post, it’s a challenge. Much of who you become is determined in the moments when no one is watching. There‘s no coach around you, no teammate, significant other or friend to give you encouragement. In most of your opportunities for growth it’s just you and your thoughts. Are you still willing to put the effort in then? Are you willing to give it your all when there is no one there to challenge you? Understand this — if you desire to live a life of excellence, it’s not only going to be hard, it’s also going to be lonely. Everyone won’t become great. Not because they don’t want to, but because they’re not willing to. We’ve all seen your tweets and your IG posts, but when your phones are down and the laptops closed, are you really putting the work in? Remember that no matter how good you become, the struggle always remains. The hill gets steeper and the road rougher. Every day is a mental battle. There is a fight between who you are and who you want to be. Some mornings I wake up and I don’t want to get out of bed. Then I take a moment to ask myself, “Who do I want to be? What are my opponents doing right now?” Then I visualize: “I bet he’s not sleeping. I bet he is training.” And then I get to work. After mornings like those, I rejoice. Because I know that I’ve conquered my biggest obstacle — myself. These are the days that I become a champion. As you journey to become your best, never let your comfort zone speak louder than your dreams. If you need to rest, rest easy in the beauty of your struggle. Because although excellence comes at a cost, so does mediocrity. Serena Williams said it best: . “There are days that I don’t feel like training, but there is no day that I feel like losing.” . Which path will you choose? -JB . [email protected]
