Choices of Champions (principles apply to all sports)

Have you ever wondered what makes someone that bit better than others?

Often it comes down to the decisions they make  . Take a look at the big challenges below and see how often you pick the best option…

  1. Every morning in bed when the alarm goes off, you’ve got a choice to make: the easy way or the hard way.

Easy way: Hit the snooze button or even worse – go back to sleep.

Hard way: Jump out of bed, pick up the bag you packed with all your sports gear the night before, go wake up mom and ask her (nicely) to drive you to workout.

  1. In the pool as you approach a wall, you’ve got a choice to make: the easy way or the hard way.

Easy way: Breathe as often as you like, finish sloppily and your head up and your hips down.

Hard way: Don’t breathe from the flags in free and fly, drive to the wall with great power and finish in a streamlined position with hips high.

  1. During a tough workout you’ve got a choice to make: the easy way or the hard way.

Easy way: Cruise up and down the lanes, try hard only when the coach is watching and cut laps whenever you get the chance.

Hard way: Swim every lap with excellent technique, outstanding skills, precise pacing and controlled breathing and give everything you’ve got to every lap you swim.

  1. When you get home from workout, you’ve got a choice to make: the easy way or the hard way.

Easy way: Dump your swim bag on the floor, go take a shower and then rush down a quick bowl of high sugar cereal for breakfast.

Hard way: Unpack your swim bag in the laundry, put your wet towel and swim-suit in the washer and turn it on, take a shower then make your own breakfast of fresh fruit, healthy low sugar cereal, low fat yogurt, fresh juice and whole grain toast AND clean up afterwards.

  1. Late that night when it’s time for sleep, you’ve got a choice to make: the easy way or the hard way.

Easy way: Stay up late watching TV then go to bed and lay there until midnight watching funny videos on your iPad while texting friends.

Hard way: Go to bed early and read a book for 30 minutes before closing your eyes and practicing deep breathing and relaxation exercises as you fall asleep.
