How disciplined are you to get better on days you don’t “feel motivated” to do so? Summer is a great time to relax, reflect, and reset. One important area to evaluate and manage? …how hard you are chasing your own growth.
Make a list of the areas in your life where you want to be great and know you must chase growth. Rate yourself on a scale of 1-5 in terms of how hard you are trying to grow in each area.
1-I am not chasing growth here (must change habits or change your goals)
2-I am below average in my approach to get better here
3-I steadily find ways to grow each week here
4-I consistently push forward, fail, and chase growth here
5-I think daily about growth, live outside my comfort zone and set a standard for how to work towards getting better here.
A players list may look like: Ball Handling, Finishing with either hand, Leadership, Self discipline
Someone like me may have a list like: Leadership development, Coaching, Player development, Entrepreneurship, Relationship building
This honesty and self reflection will help you frame your goals, and will reinforce your mindset on days you don’t feel like putting in some work. Turn your 2’s/3’s into a 4 or 5 with consistency and intentionality. Push into growth this summer, starting now!
Change is hard. When an individual or society goes through change, it looks different in the present moment than it does in the history books. We can look back on positive change without the pressure felt in the present moment within the change. We gain perspective. If we can remember this perspective and seek it in the present moment, we can think more clearly and lessen emotion or cloudy judgement.
Why this post today? I challenge you to commit to one small measure of change that you can make in your own life or for others around you. Pick something you want to change. Commit to it through action. Stick with it when it gets hard. If you’re willing to make a positive impact, the perspective you can count on having after the fact is all you need to keep going. Persist, and make the world around you a better place by giving energy towards change.
We hosted a great tournament this past weekend for Team Peak and it couldn’t have been done without the help of so many. I wanted to post a note of gratitude to all who helped in big and small ways!!
PeakFest on May 15th hosted 35 teams in Boone. A big THANK YOU to all who helped make it happen. Here are a few people who especially deserve thanks:
Peak Coaches: Paul Moore, Chelsi Hodges, Paige Bolick, Sam Crabbe, Mark Lewis, Rick Klima, Patrick Sukow, & Matt Tate.
“In ordinary life, we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give, and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich.”
