The All of It Includes Set Backs

The All of It

  • The All of it includes setbacks. This year especially during covid is a year of many setbacks for many student athletes.
  • Setbacks are actually important and valuable and how you become more resilient.
  • The highs, the lows, the setbacks and everything in between are all part of the ALL OF IT.
  • The ALL OF IT needs to include a hunger to succeed and to prove them wrong.
  • When I say ” Prove Them Wrong” note that everyone has a “them” on their path to reaching their goal.
  • You can’t let ” them” beat you. Whoever your “them” is.
  • Everyone has setbacks. It is NOT just you going through a setback although you probably think it is at the time.
  • Even the highest level NHL player has a “them” and setbacks.
  • First rounders are sent to the minors.
  • Franchise players are off the power play.
  • Get hurt.
  • Have coaches that don’t like them for one reason or another or have an agenda.
  • Pull yourself together after a setback and get even hungrier to succeed and prove “them” wrong.
  • How do you do that?
  • By making a plan. You always feel better when you make a plan. Devise the plan with help of your parents.
  • There are so many little things and elements of hard work and grit that you need to do to get you to reach your goal and carryout your plan of hard work.
  • Success is hard.
  • Middle of the pack  is a lot easier and takes significantly less hard work and suffers a lot less disappointment.
  • Take that setback and get hungry.
  • You may think that you were working as hard as you could…but were you?
  • Could you have done more?
  • Could you have watched more video? researched more opponents? done more stickhandling at home? gotten more rest? done more strength and conditioning training? done more homework? budgeted your time better? made a better training plan? eaten better? stayed better hydrated? been a better teammate and friend? been a more selfless player? communicated better with your coach teachers and parents? been more grateful to those trying to help you on your journey? been more present during the game?
  • Not a cramming session of doing more.  But a making a long term. Begin executing it with small realistic daily gains.
  • Think like an inchworm walking, taking little steps daily that my go unnoticed for awhile, but then all of a sudden. Wow that little guy really moved.
