Journal Prompt: One thing I truly value in life is…
Where our treasure is, that is where our heart and focus is. If you value winning in your sport, your only focus will be winning and a loss might break you mentally. Worst of all, you have no control of that outcome, even more so in a team sport.
If you value effort, then your outcome will be based on something within your control, your effort. I can give my absolute effort, be bested by a better athlete, and still hold my head high with some mental notes on how to improve.
Take a moment to assess all areas of your life and see what you value most. Is your value based on things within your control or outside? If outside, how can you change your focus to be on something you can control that will still lead to success?
