Clemson University Football Strength and Conditioning Coach Joey Batson is quoted as saying:

“They don’t put championship rings on smooth hands… You win championships when the stadium is empty, when the band ain’t playing, when the cheerleaders ain’t cheering, when it’s just you and your brother, right beside you.”

I love these types of quotes as they are a reminder that we can’t just expect to turn up and expect everything to automatically work out.

We have to roll up the sleeves and do the work.

We have to be disciplined and self-motivated.

We have to practice and prepare relentlessly.

We have to take responsibility for our success, because it won’t be handed to us on a platter.

So my question today is, what extra activity are you going to do this week, when no-one is looking and without anyone telling you, that will get you closer to your goals?
