Achieving your Athletic Development pt.3 - Adversity
Adversity, your ability to overcome it is directly related to your success in sport, business & life. How you deal with it, how you overcome it, and how you help others overcome their own adversities defines you as a person and a leader.
The sooner you accept that fact that your path in life is going to be littered with Adversity & Stress, especially in regards to Athletic Development, the sooner you can begin training to not only handle it, but overcome it to make you a better athlete and most importantly a better person.
Today’s society is stressful and NO ONE escapes these stresses. Not me, not the guy next door we all believe has “The Life”. No one is safe.
How do you overcome adversity? No easy answer here, it develops with experience. You never give up, keep trying, stick to your principles and build your knowledge base by learning from each experience.
“Adversity is something you overcome. Principles never have a price tag and doing what is right is never wrong. Say that until it is second nature and eventually you will begin to respect there is something extraordinary that plays a role in every decision you will make in life. You will face many obstacles in life and when sport has taught you that ‘adversity is something you overcome’ and you are a man or woman of principles, you have become a champion.” – John Davies
