Not all the best performers just show up or are born with the natural so called talent we think.
Here is a real example about Jerry Rice.
#1 Came from a small town (population 636)
#2 Received very little interest to play in college (but did)
#3 15 teams passed him over in the NFL draft.(They thought he was to slow)
Was on underdog all of his competitive life, but Jerry Rice went on to be the best receiver in NFL history.
How did this happen?
#1 He designed his practice to focus on very specific needs. How does this translate to your son or daughter? Focus on what the team needs. Work on it, but also spend some time improving areas that need attention too.
#2 Supported by others, but did lots of work on his own. At all of our EYG events we are telling players to take what they did in the training sessions and do it on their own.
#3 It was physically and mentally challenge. Jerry Rice's workouts are historic in regards to difficulty, but he knew it was necessary. If you son or daughter goes through challenging workouts it is going to pay off.
What your son or daughter can take away from the information about Jerry Rice is:
#1. Training and practice is cumulative. It just adds up each time you do it to eventually show up when needed. Find specific things to work on. Keep working on them. Keep persisting!
