“Most players never really push themselves, they never reach their potential and that’s to bad. Great players who reach their potential constantly push themselves, and that’s good news” – Jock Stein (Former Scotland Football Manager)
Sometimes we can only live up to our potential when we are pushed from the outside. Unfortunately, if we always rely on that push from someone else, we will never be as demanding of our own performance as we should be. If we challenge ourselves in all situations at training or in a game, we will become more familiar with and expand our limits and expertise. Knowing what we are capable of will allow us to adapt and be ready for any situation as it occurs. We will know that we can dig in and get the required result – we will reach our full potential.
I will be sure to always play up to my potential.
