Imagine…by the end of this post, like magic, you will become a better soccer player. Just by simply reading this page you have the potential to become a better player star because you’ve stumbled onto a little secret.
Can you guess the secret?
Read the opening sentence again. Any ideas? Don’t despair if you can’t see it, just keep reading.
Did you find the introduction compelling? Did it grab your attention? If so, why? If you’re not following me answer this, who is this post for? Soccer Mastermind is a blog for whom? The hours I spend researching, coming up with ideas, writing, re-writing, pulling my hair out and banging my head on the desk are for whom?
The most important word from the introduction is YOU. This post is for YOU. Soccer Mastermind is for you, although at times it’s difficult not to get into the self absorbed stuff, you know, I was this and I did that.
But as you read along, following these words as I t-y-p-e, you must realize, that this is for you. Why?
YOU are the most important player in the world. That’s right, YOU! Not only are you the most important player in the world, YOU are the most important person in the world. Not your coach, not your manager, but YOU.
Next time you have a decision to make, a crossroad to pass or a bridge to cross, I dare YOU, yes YOU, to make the decision. At the end of the day, at the end of every training session and at the end of every season, who is the most important player in the world?
Soccer should always be about the “YOU SHOW”. Enjoy the ride because you’re the star.
“May the winds of destiny blow you to the stars.”
