"If you don't fight for what you want, what will you fight for?" Commentary at Roland Garros tennis match.
One of the hardest lessons to learn while chasing your dream is a lil something called focus. All athletes have this quality in spades. Focus is all about centering in on your goal and what you need to do to accomplish it.
My second year of college, I had zilch in the focus department. I was dancing on tables and snorting, well, we won't go into that- but anyways, lets just say, focus wasn't even in my vocabulary. Nowadays, winning the mental battle when chasing a dream is everything.
A few years ago, Vogue magazine did a story on LeBron James. At the time, he was on top of the world-focused and driven. Vogue summed him best"He sinks ball after ball in a shooting drill. And then-a bad shot, a little off. As the next ball reaches his hand, he pauses, just for a millisecond, as if hitting the reboot button. Next shot and all the ones following-dead on."
LeBron learned to readjust himself. I have to say, the 2011 version of LeBron isn't my fave. The more I keep hearing and watching, the more frustrated I get. Maybe Mr. James is unknowingly teaching us a lesson. Find our focus.
The future is bright, my friends. And its waiting for us.
