The Power of Being Positive

“Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start having positive results.” – Willie Nelson

“Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will.” – Zig Ziglar


It gets tough when training for a sport.  Some days you feel like quitting while other days you feel like you’re on top of the world.  Unfortunately, sometimes there are more tougher days and it becomes difficult to keep going.  The ones that excel in their sport are the ones that find a way to push through those days because they know it will be worth it when their goal is reached.  As an athlete, practice means progress.  The more you practice and train the better you will be.  No ones perfect and no ones expects you to be.  It’s been proven time after time that constant and consistent effort day in and day out will result in positive results.

On the days when it gets tough, those are the days that reading an inspirational quote or story or even talking with someone you trust as well as watching a video can help keep you going.  Never give up and never give in.  Stay positive and look beyond today toward the goal you’re trying to reach.  If you can do that then positive results will happen.  You can and will accomplish your goal (s).  See the finish line and ALWAYS believe in yourself.  Constant and consistent effort is how you get through it.

Now get out there and go make progress toward your goal (s)!
