19. You're Not a Failure
6 years ago, around this same time of year, I had a hard time watching football on TV.
Just the sound of the whistle reminded me that I would never play the game I love again.
I talk to dozens of former athletes every week who still have a hard time watching their sport.
Some of them stopped playing nearly a decade ago.
If you’ve had a similar experience, I want you to know that just because you didn’t have the athletic career you’d hoped for, doesn’t mean you’re a failure.
I think as athletes we spend so much time chasing the next big thing, that it’s easy for us to overlook how far we’ve come, and how proud of our accomplishments we should be.
You’re still a role model to the ones who looked up to you during your playing days.
You still have the opportunity to do something great.
Once you find your new mission and apply that “go-getter” mindset to it, you’ll be unstoppable.
Thanks for watching!
