"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase"
I am sure Dr. King had so many resounding levels of complexity in his statement, but in essence for all of us..including athletes you must take that first step. Commitment? Dedication?
Fear is common in us. It's the fight or flight mentality. But, to be the best, you have to continously take the next step. The New Year has turned. Your resolutions are being taxed. You have to take that first step to commitment! Once you take that first step you are more inclined to take the second..especially if the first step was made with thoughtful, well planned intentions.
Have the faith to plan it out. Each step will become closer to a succesful journey that will yield results in sport AND out.
