The path to achieving big dreams isn’t usually smooth and methodical – there are mistakes, setbacks, and struggles along the way. Champions don’t let those things hold them back – they use them as motivation, learn from them, and make adjustments. Every experience is used to make them better, not just the wins. This doesn’t just apply to hockey, but in persevering towards any goal. If you really want something, don’t let any difficulties or disappointments hold you back. Keep playing and find a way.
Game Plan: Treat each setback as a learning opportunity to make you better, not as the end of the road. Remember why you’re doing it and what you are working towards.
