“The heart is the first feature of working minds.”
– Frank Lloyd Wright, Architect, Writer, Educator
Building the Heart of the Competitor is an incremental process of continually building every skill needed to be mentally tough, having an enduring spirit, and constantly moving forward regardless of the struggle or adversity.
Nobody other than yourself can know what is in your heart. However, others will be aware of what is in your heart by your everyday actions. Your everyday actions to do your job and do it to the best of your ability will be the outward representation of what is in your heart.
Are you being the best teammate, coworker, husband, friend, mother, child, etc. that you can be?
Are you focusing on every moment, drill, and interaction to the fullest?
Approach everyday with this spirit and focus in your heart and you will live a life that exemplifies what is in your heart. The heart is the living muscle that pushes the competitor to new heights and provides passion to continually be moving forward.
The Heart of the Competitor is mentally tough because their heart is fully immersed in pursuing the mission and enjoying the journey. The heart is essential to maintaining life and the heart is essential to engaging our minds and enjoying the present moment.
