It’s been an interesting week to say the least. The only thing I can say is that I am heading into this week with a completely different mindset than I have had in a long time. I always believe that everyone meets new people at specific points in their lives for a reason. I do believe in fate. But I am talking even friends and random strangers. It’s very rare that I meet someone that legitimately makes me think about my own mindset. For the longest time this is what I took the biggest pride in – being mentally tough. It was how I beat so many wrestlers who were technically better than I was growing up. I felt I worked harder so I willed myself to win. It was that simple in my eyes.
Fast forward a few years later and here I am in an unfamiliar sport with the mental toughness of a goldfish. I met someone who has completely made me re-think my approach to the sport & to my athletic career in general. I think I Forgot what it was like to think like an athlete for a period of time.
Anyway, here’s a huge thank you to that person (who has no idea), and here’s to starting over. Cheers!
Go kick some butt this week.
