In all walks off life individuals have aims and aspirations that they place great importance upon. One aspect of being an athlete is that often times these goals are public knowledge, and your efforts open to be scrutinised. Something that is constant, regardless of the nature of your focus, is that the path to success is very rarely plain sailing. Even if everyone had the same targets I’m willing to bet there would be immense variation in how we would each apply ourselves, and that’s wonderful! It’s because we’re all unique, and come with our own respective strengths and weaknesses.
