It’s a natural thing for athletes to be moved by the success of others. Its natural to compare yourself to other athlete’s results. But there’s a reason why you should never compare yourself to other athletes
You all train, you all work hard, you’re all involved in the same sport.
So why are some achieving success and others are not. It’s a natural thought process.
The successful athletes are those who have learnt to master their mind. They control their mind and not the other way around.
So when the mind says compare yourself to other athlete’s results, they say nope I’m going to focus instead on what he’s doing to achieve that result.
The problem is not just comparing yourself to other athlete’s results, its what follows after.
You become depressed because it becomes clear that you both are not on the same level. It appears you’re doing something wrong or you need to change your whole routine.
That’s not always the case.
A simple change in strategy is all that’s required.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN FROM THIS EPISODE
- The results of other athletes is not what counts
- Your journey in sports is independent
- Comparison is a dream killer
- Why you must understand what works for you.
- Plus much more….
