What Are Your Goals in 2019?
Happy New Year! The second half of the hockey season is upon us and that means it is a great time to think about what you want to accomplish this year in 2019. In other words, it is time to set some goals. Why is this important? Goals are a crucial mental training technique that, when the process is done properly, provide motivation, focus, confidence, the ability to overcome setbacks and the will to work hard day in and day out!
A few final thoughts:
Reaching your goals is a difficult task. It requires you to be responsible and committed to do the things necessary to reach your goal over the long term.
Set goals in all areas of your game (mental, physical, technical & tactical) and your life (sport, school, social, personal development & family).
Take ownership for your goals. You cannot achieve something for someone else and they cannot achieve for you. Your goals have to be your own.
Set team goals as well as individual goals.
Write your goals down on paper, when on paper they become real and tangible. Look at your goals everyday.
By setting goals you will achieve new heights that you never imagined possible!
Ask yourself.... How far are you willing to go to achieve your goals in 2019!
