I know you are playing up an age group. Playing with the better competition. Pushing yourself to be better.
I also know that surrounding yourself with older and more experienced athletes can be a confidence killer if you're...
👎not playing as much as you want
👎keep comparing yourself to your teammates
👎keep comparing yourself to the athletes on the other teams you play
👎constantly feeling like you're never going to be good enough
I want you to remember this... your journey as an athlete is long, like a marathon. If you are putting yourself on teams that are out of your comfort zone, it will pay off in the long run.
It is going to feel challenging. It is going to feel sucky. It is going to feel hard.
👍Keep learning from your challenges.
👍Keep learning from the suckiness.
👍Keep learning from the hard times.
You will be so proud and amazed with yourself when you are passing up other girls because you stuck to it. You fought for it!
Focus on being grateful for the challenges, the suckiness, and the hard times. Be grateful for the teammates that are motivating you to level up! 💗
👉Thank a teammate who has motivated you to level up!
Keep on keepin’ on,
