Find your WHY.....and you will find your WAY.
Somewhere in between when you leave your comfort zone, to enter a more challenging zone.
com·fort zone/ˈkəmfərt zōn/
nouna place or situation where one feels safe or at ease and without stress.
My comfort zone: Known ability to play in a higher caliber event/league. Having the stats and skills to back it up. Competition is “fun and care free.”Players looking up to you. You're the top of the food chain.
testing one's abilities; demanding
Players are of bigger and stronger playing abilities. Your mental and thinking process will be tested constantly. You are no longer on the top of the food chain, you are now at the bottom trying to make your way up. It may even feel like players are looking down at you instead of them looking up at you like in the comfort zone.
It’s basically the same concept for both zone's, tho:
- Pre-shot routine
- Pattern play
- Stay down on your shot
Start with a small goal and once that is achieved, set another a goal. DO NOT GIVE UP!!
Once the challenging zone toughens you up, and makes you a confident and stronger player, going back to what was your comfort zone will actually make you feel like you no longer belong. It will make you feel out of place.
I do feel that you adapt to your surroundings. So if you stay there too long, you have to keep moving in order to excel or you will stay playing at that same level.
Change is hard....it is tough when you are IN BETWEEN leaving the old and making your way in to the new.
I am determined and I will NOT give up!
