Sports, like life, offer a never-ending procession of challenges that require us to respond in different ways. Great competitors understand their response in the heat of competition is a choice between two emotions:
The High Road
"This is a challenge and I'm excited to meet it!"
The Low Road
"This is a problem and I want to avoid it."
People who look forward to challenges, in sports and life, prepare themselves more carefully and perform better when it's game time. Start preparing yourself today by getting on the High Road!
