Always On the Attack

Hello Everyone!

This past weekend I was in Dixon, California with PGC's Athlete Performance College (APC). The athletes, coaches, and PGC staff in attendance were an incredible group that really embraced the process needed to get quicker, stronger, and more explosive. A main theme of the APC weekend is to "be a shark".

To learn all the aspects of being a shark you'll have to attend an Athlete Performance College yourself, but one important aspect of it is if you are not attacking you are not trying to win, if you are not trying to win, why are you on the court?

It doesn't matter if you are on offense or defense, champion athletes are always in an attack mindset. Champion athletes are always hungry.
Dixon, CA had athletes that were ready to get better!
As an athlete that desires (or hungers) to be their best, it is important to understand that when you are not attacking you are not trying to win. It doesn't matter if you are up by 10 points with 0:12 seconds left on the clock. If you are on the court you need to have an attack mindset, you need to be trying to win, if not, why are you on the court?

Regardless, if you are an athlete that gets the opportunity to play D1, D2, D3, NAIA, or Juco, you will have to fight tooth and nail to get on the court. That same attack mindset to get on the court needs to stay with you when you are on the court. The only other alternative is that you are trying to lose. There is no middle ground, you are either trying to win, or trying to lose. Just like a basketball game ends with someone winning and someone losing, you have to play as a winner. That's why athletes have to learn an attack mindset. They can't wait for opportunities to come to them, they have to go find them. If you are starving for your dreams you will always be taking action. Always be on the attack.
Be a shark!
Keep Training!
