Whatever Happened to You?


Whatever happened to all the dreams? The wants, the desires, the hopes, the cravings, the appetite, the passion? The aspirations of youth? Where did you go? Whatever happened to you?

Last night a footballer gained admittance to the football folklore of Spain. He burst onto the field in the dying minutes of the game and scored twice to rescue his team from a hopeless situation. Well so what, we hear you say.

In 1992 Julen Guerrero was a household name. An attractive, talented, insightful footballer who magnetised the crowds and naturally had those with big cheque books drooling for his signature. Everyone wanted to sign him.

All he wanted to do was play for 'his' club. He saw it as an essential part of his life. The core of his being. He rejected all offers to stay in the North of Spain. Then the inevitable happened, a new coach arrived. This new coach didn't want his talent. Took an instant dislike to him and he was out of the team. He just didn't fit. For the next nine seasons he practiced new skills and played in the reserve team waiting for his opportunity. Waiting for a new manager. And this week it happened. He's off again.

The bottom line is, it's never too late. It's never too late to overcome what has happened to you. It's never too late to reinvent yourself.

Richard Restak, in his book, the New Brain discusses the fact that contrary to common belief the brain doesn't peak when we are adolescents and go down hill from there. In fact the research proves that you can, regardless of age, keep delivering outstanding performances whatever your age.

All you need is a dream and practice. The unspoken, untaught method of success at any age is effort. How much effort are you willing to put in, in order to reach your dreams?

Ask yourself: What stops me achieving my dreams?

Is it the television? When given the option of practicing the skills necessary to succeed or watching TV what do you choose?

Is it the 'have to' jobs?I 'have to' wash the car. I 'have to' read the emails. I 'have to' play the computer game. I 'have to' prepare dinner. I 'have to' do the washing up. I 'have to' do the gardening. I 'have to' take the dog for a walk.

What excuse do you give yourself to stop practicing? What is the excuse you use to ensure that when you do practice your body and brain are tired and you cannot give 100%?

What is it?

Practice guarantees success.

It is a known fact that the difference between the successful and the also rans is the dedication to practice.

We recently read that David Renwick the British caddie for the world number one golfer, Vijay Singh, is thinking of resigning because of the hours Vijay spends practicing. Even though he is number one in the world Vijay is said to be the first on the driving range and the last to leave. One person estimates that he hits an average of 500 balls a day on the range.

Vijay took the world number one slot from Tiger Woods, last September, when he was 41 years of age.

He became world number one through practice.

What about you? What is going to happen to you?

Good Luck.

Graham and Julie.
