This time of year, people set big goals, make resolutions, and dream of better results in the upcoming year.
But statistics prove that the vast majority won’t achieve them.
Many of them are hockey players.
I’m a firm believer in setting big specific goals, and writing them down where you can review them often.
Your goals need to be defined and they need to have a timeline.
Goals not written down will not happen.
But setting goals and developing healthy habits that support them shouldn’t just be something you do once a year, they should be who you are as a person.
I want you to make 2017 your best year ever as a hockey player, and if you do too, you don’t need to make things complicated.
Sometimes the things you eliminate, give up, or stop doing in your life have a bigger impact on your future than the things you add.
If you want to become the best version of yourself here’s 11 things you can do:
Get Rid Of Bad Nutrition
To really reach your potential as a player, everything starts here.
Sound nutrition is the foundation for performance.
Put the right foods in your body and you will begin to see results immediately.
Let Go Of Playing Small
If you never pursue great opportunities or chase your dreams, you will never be the player you were designed to be.
Both you and the game will also never benefit from what you could have achieved.
So step up, be bold, don’t be afraid to fail.
More importantly, don’t be afraid to succeed.
Stop Making Excuses
The reality is, life isn’t fair, and everything in the game of hockey is earned.
