Do you ever look outside of yourself and think, I wish I could do that? As I dive deeper into the world of travel writing, I find that once again I am only seeing the outer edges of a bubble that holds the real stuff inside. It's just like everything else, the ideal snapshot only tells one side of the story.
If you're reading this, you're not an Olympian yet (most likely) so maybe, just maybe there's something to be gained by taking a look at the way you approach your sport, your coaches, your teammates and/or your attitude in general. Being coachable means you're leaving room for the possibility that there's something you haven't learned yet that could make you even better.
By going through what I refer to as the "backlog" of stuff that has been ignored, compartmentalized and avoided at all costs (Can't have anyone over? Lock up certain areas of your home for fear that someone will see your mess? Blood run cold when the doorbell rings? Then you know what I'm talking about here.) we are bound to run into some internal resistance.
