Got It

Hello Everyone!

Have you ever had a conversation with someone where he/she just got it? Where he/she just completely understood what you were saying and were instantly on-board with what you were conveying? Well that’s exactly what happened to me this past weekend in Dallas, TX at the PGC Athlete Performance College that I directed.

There was close to 70 athletes and over 15 observing coaches at the 13-hour weekend course, which includes film analysis, classroom, and gym sessions, and it seemed like everyone just got it. As I shared how speed, strength, and power are all skills that anyone through proper training can improve, I looked around the room to find these individuals nodding agreeingly and taking detailed notes. I was honored to be able to provide the tools, information, and skills these individuals were seeking to take their game to the next level.

This group continually and consistently demonstrated that they “got it” and that they wanted it. Throughout the course these individuals had to compete against other athletes that were sometimes bigger, faster, and stronger than them. Every time they rose to the challenge and used the speed and strength skills they were learning to face the challenge head on.

One of the most powerful things we can embrace in life is that we create our lives through our actions, not our thoughts. If we choose to continually act in the ways that we know will help us get closer to our goals we will find steading progress. If we focus on our actions, and not the outcomes, we can find success. We can’t always control the outcomes, but we can always control our actions.
Choosing to train our speed, strength, and power are actions that any athlete seeking athletic success must embrace. Learning the difference between good, better, and best training, in order to maximize our time and efforts, is an action that separates the good from the great. I am blessed to have spent a weekend with individuals that are on the path of greatness.

Keep Training!
