TURN ADVERSITY INTO ADVANTAGE

So that start of the year hasn't gone the way you had planned it...

The best athletes in the world at times appear to be flawless. When we view them we see someone that is naturally gifted, one that is rarely caught in the wrong. Well, believe it or not if you look more closely, it is very hard to find someone that has achieved greatness who has not faced adversity in their life. The ones that are the best at what they do had to over come some type of obstacle or defeat in their past to learn and get to where they are today. With this said, if you are at the point were the beginning of the season didn't go as you had liked it is time to realize that you can change the future. Being a goalie comes down to experience. Use the failures and mistakes, the victories and positives, and understand how they happened. Breakdown the opposition and get an idea of what they do. What options do they have off the rush? How do they set- up on a powerplay? From the corner who will they be looking for? Again, it comes down to the past experiences that you have faced and how you can use them to your advantage in the future!
