|More than just a logo, it is real, it is true, it is life. YES YOU CAN|
It is highly likely that I will sound like a broken record when it comes to your belief system, your attitude, and the way you think about your self ( YOUR SELF ESTEEM). Your entire world can change once you change the way you think about yourself, your skills, your abilities, your school work, your family, your friends the list can go on and on. If you have a desire to achieve something, you have already begun the first step in believing in yourself.
We all have dreams, some are big some are small, but the size of the dream doesn't matter if you don't believe in them. When we allow our thoughts to turn into dreams, desires, wants, and wishes it changes who we are, it puts us in a place to create something out of nothing. The world began as a blank canvas, and no matter how you believe we came to this point in time just know that something, someone somehow , said it, believed it and did it. Now I'm not saying its even possible to create a world in our solar system, but you can create your own world right here on earth by using the strongest muscle in your body. YOUR BRAIN.
The moment you began to think, hey I want to play basketball, your brain began to create the you that you are now. You began to eat, sleep and think of nothing more than basketball. Then you started to figure out how to play, may you started in a park, maybe in the backyard, but you put action into this notion, this though. Then shortly after you began to feel good enough to try out for a team and surely enough you made it! NOW WHAT? Dream more, dream bigger, be specific, and take actions often. If you dream of touching the net, well work on it. Think, write it down and do it. Thats all this game is about. Putting your thoughts into actions and achieving your goals. No matter what your goal is, you can do it. If you want to play for your high school team, its possible, but its going to take work. You're done the easy part, now the hard part is being consistent and faithful to your goals.
If you don't believe in yourself, it will be tough for others to take you serious and believe in you as well. You are your best friend, stop being your worst enemy. A majority of the time we ourselves are the reason we dont accomplish goals. We stop short, we give up we get down on ourselves and say I CAN'T. D o just the opposite and see how the quality of life changes for you in every aspect. Believe in you.
Heres a mental drill for you.
Think about where you are and where you want to be within the next year. Be realistic as always, because you don't want to overwhelm yourself.
Write down 5-10 things you want to accomplish this season.
Everyday do something to get closer to your goal.
Talk to your teammates, your coaches, your family and your friends.
Make it a point to get in extra practice, make it a point to say, I CAN DO THIS.
Never let anyone tell you that you CAN'T because that is just a lie.
Here is an example.
- Improve lay-up shooting
- Improve free throw shooting
- Increase vertical jump
- Run faster, be quicker
- Improve 3 point shooting
- Improve ball handling skills
- Get more assist
- Get more rebounds etc.
All of these things are certainly doable, but you must believe first and take actions second.
