Don’t end the year in defeat

Yeah, I know New Years is coming, but what does that really change except the calendar?

2021 has been a rough year, but 2020 was too.

Many people are almost numb to all the bad news, Covid, catastrophes, dirty politics, and on and on..

When will it ever end?

No one knows.

Though we cannot fix the whole world we can make our own lives better and the lives of those around us.

So how do we do that?

Here’s a few things we all can do:

keep our priorities right

don’t compromise our core beliefs

fight the “woe is me” syndrome

stay focused

keep training

keep learning

keep treating other people right

don’t be easily offended or “thin-skinned”

have lots of grit

When it comes to training this last week of the year, make it your best week.

Get in three good training sessions.

Don’t be a drunk.

Lay off the junk food.

Stay focused!

Finish strong,

Coach D
