YOU ARE WHO YOU ARE BECAUSE OF WHAT HAS GONE INTO YOUR MIND...

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. I worked with a goaltender this weekend and his outlook on this season was outstanding. The year has gone below average for his team, and I mean very below average as they are struggling. Many in this situation would get frustrated and would have a different outlook on their training, loosing interest and getting discouraged. It is very important that if YOU are in this situation you do what this goalie is doing and look at everyday as a learning experience, a challenge! For many a challenge is what you look forward to, what athletes enjoy and want to conquer! USE this challenge and move forward!
