Slow The Game Down: It's that simple, but at the same time, this may be the toughest lesson to understand about playing any sport. But, it's the athlete that understands how to accomplish this task that competes at the highest level.
Define what you're willing to give to this game, and the game will define what it's willing to give back to you.
The one lesson I want every player to completely understand is this: NEVER ALLOW SOMEONE ELSE TO DEFINE WHAT YOU ARE OR WHAT YOU CAN BECOME. To do so, is to give another individual control over your success. VISUALIZE WHAT YOU WANT TO BE AND GO DO IT.
