You may remember the review I did, of the book “Training Camp – What The Best Do Better Than Everyone Else“, just over a year ago. It’s a fantastic book, so if you haven’t read it yet I urge you to do so! In it we learn of 11 things that the best do better than everyone else. Over the next 11 weeks I’ll go trough that list and expand on each item, so that we can become the best.
The first item is: The Best Know What They Want!
That the best know what they want is a truism, yet many neglect it when day-dreaming of greatness. Let me ask you something; how do you expect to get to find a way if you don’t know where you’re going. Many people try to do this the other way round. They think of all these great things they can start doing but most don’t have a precisely defined goal. This is essential. Once you know what you want, getting it’s easy.
“They know what they are working toward. It’s often in the distance, but they have a clear picture of it in their mind and they can see it. Some formulate this vision because of a role model that inspired them and showed them that greatness was possible. … For many who strive to be the best, there was a person before them who paved the way, who showed them that greatness was possible. Sometimes this person was a friend or mentor, and [in] other cases it was a complete stranger who showed the world what being the best looked like. … They had a clear vision and they dedicated their life to it.”
We can all look to others whom we admire and see that greatness is in fact achievable, this is especially true in the fitness world where so many have achieved and continue to achieve greatness.
So do you know what you want? If so; congratulations you’re now at least 1/11th of the way toward being the best! If you don’t know exactly what you want then you need to find out. Seek out some people who inspire you and find out what you want.
