“If you trust your nerve as much as your skill, you’re capable of a lot more than you imagine”- Mike Atherton (Former England Cricket Captain)
That’s really what competing in sport is all about – giving your best. We get the most out of playing the game by giving it a go each and every time we compete. Striving to do our best doesn’t mean we need to be miserable either. We should always play with a smile on our face and enjoy ourselves, otherwise what is the point. It’s also worth remembering that even if we give our best we may not come out on top. This is just another aspect of competing, results don’t always match our efforts.
I will always give it my best shot.
