What is the end result of having goals?
Updated: Sep 12, 2019
This sounds kind of silly, doesn't it? But let's be real. What is the end result of having a goal? How do you feel? How does it affect your body? How does it improve your sport? How does it affect you spiritually? Goals go so much deeper than just putting something down on paper and "trying" to hit that goal. It goes way beyond that. It changes you, it can change your body, it can change your mindset. If your goal is being set correctly, there will be some sort of change in your life and a change for the better!
Some people have a hard time embracing change, so they don't like to set goals. Some are afraid of change, so they don't set goals. Nothing will ever change in your life if you don't have goals. No one is going to set a goal for you. Well, they can try, but ultimately you are the only one that can do this for yourself. If you are the type that is scared, try thinking about how good you will feel when you hit that goal. Whether it is physically, emotionally, or spiritually, you will feel different. The world is constantly changing. Your sport is constantly changing. There is always an athlete doing something in your sport that has never been achieved before, maybe it a record for the fastest swim, or the most points scored, or a tumbling pass that has never been attempted before. All of these athletes had goals to do this. They wanted to be faster, better, or be the "first" to do something related to their sport. If you feel like this will never be you, then (I am sad to say) it will never be you. You have to believe in yourself! You have to be able to trust those around you that are training you to be your best. If you "fail" at your goal in the time you give yourself, keep going! Don't give up! Sometimes we want things to happen so fast, but they don't. It takes years to do what the accomplished athletes in your sport do. You can extend your goal if you see that it was a little quick, or if there is an injury. Keep reaching! I believe in you!
