Change hurts, right?
It is an important lesson for all of us to learn. Change hurts. It hurts in life and it hurts in sport.
Even when you know the change will lead to good things – the process hurts. No matter what.
It will not feel good when you are getting your ass kicked in practice by a kid you would normally beat because you are working on a skill that you are not good at yet.
It won’t feel good.
But it is necessary.
It is necessary if you want to grow as an athlete and want to reach the highest level of the sport that you can.
Embrace the hurt
Embrace the change
The change will have a positive effect on you if you allow it to.
