What do you want from the game of basketball? College scholarship? Maybe, a chance to play in the NBA or overseas. It can definitely happen, but it depends on how much work you’re willing to put in. Your dreams and goals go as you go. If you work, then your dreams work and come alive. Constantly work and be in search of the correct paths to take you to that next level and it will end up finding you. Sounds simple enough but accomplishing goals as a student athlete takes a lot of focus and dedication. Your time away from team workouts should involve individual development. You have to be your dream. There’s not a lot of time for fun. School, basketball, family time, and time with those kids that are in that same lane. That’s all the fun I needed. As a young male or female you have to decide if you’re in or out. If you’re in you have to position yourself to be around those guys who have that same drive and passion as you. Does your closest friend speak basketball like you do? You become like those you spend the most time with. That doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t have friends that aren’t into sports. It just means that you should give your time to those who are focused and after the same thing; SUCCESS. Stay committed to the grind. Put time in perfecting your craft everyday so that you can take your skill set to a new level. Dominate your academics so that you can focus on basketball with no worries.Outwork your peers to earn that starting spot, hit that game winner, or EARN A COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP.
Any athlete can use this formula of goal writing to lead them to success. Set realistic goals for yourself according to your role on your team. Once you accomplish these goals you can fill in new ones to constantly challenge yourself. Never stop pressing forward. Always show gratitude for what you accomplish but never get content. When you’re not working, a kid somewhere across town, or on the other side of the country is working twice a day.
