Life is competitive. Anyone who tells you different probably hasn’t achieved anything. If you’re an athlete looking to become part of the 6.2% of high school athletes that play college sports at any level, you need to work. Tons of athletes want it but are unwilling to work for it. That’s as simple as it gets. It’s evident from the start which athletes have what it takes to go to the next level. They are focused, hardworking, detailed, and highly competitive. Next time you have the opportunity to improve, crush it. Your competitive edge is outworking your teammates and opponents every opportunity you get. This takes no talent just grit. If you want it bad enough, go out and get it!
