Why You Need To Get 1st Place

Why You Need To Get 1st Place

Have you ever wanted to win at something so bad that it was all you thought of? Did you actually hit that goal that you wanted to? I’m guessing if it was that important to you you either did or got really close and came back later and crushed it! I won the California tour multiple times but when it came to winning at the last event, the championships each year I fell short. EVERY. TIME.

I took 3 years off of the California tour because of my back injury and other business ventures so this year I knew I couldn't commit to all of the contest but the ones I did I wanted to do my best and I especially wanted to win the last event because every year I would choke and either get 2nd or not make the finals. It was like a curse I had or something haha

Have you ever had a goal but you kept falling short on it? Well Tony Dungy in his book Quite Strength says something profound that helped me and I know you’re gonna like too “The first step toward creating an improved future is developing the ability to envision it. Vision will ignite the fire of passion that fuel our commitment to do whatever it takes to achieve excellence. Only vision allows us to transform dreams of great nee into the reality of achievement thought human action. Vision has no boundaries and knows no limit. Our vision is what we become in life”

What did I say! How good was that? Straight WISDOM on the importance of having a vision. We talked about a vision in previous blogs, but the way that vision helped me is that I worked harder than I normally would, went to the beach more that I was going and when it came to game day I felt prepared. You have the same thing as me. We can’t control what happens we can only control the action we take and knowing we did our best. Check out these amazing quotes I read from Tony Dungy
