It can be so easy to look back on your years as an athlete and regret not giving more in specific areas. When you are young, you feel like the gravy train we call sports will last forever. Before you know it, you are retired wondering what hit you. It only takes one injury, getting cut, not understanding that call and just like that the dream is over.
To make sure this does not happen to you, it is essential that you focus your energy on the right areas. You should focus more on being the best you can be then you should focus on others. You should also put effort into to doing the little things right on a daily basis. Doing the little things directly leads to success not being famous.
