The Only Question You Should Be Asking Yourself…


There is no secret to athletic performance. I think we have gotten over that. And you should know by now that there are many different variables that go into performance.

But there is one question you can be asking yourself all the time to make sure you make the best decisions. And as we know all of the little right decisions will add up.

I think Conor McGregor said it best:

“What we have instead is an athlete so singularly committed to his craft –‘obsessed’ is the word he uses again and again — that any decision he faces is viewed through a prism of, Does this help my fighting?”

Imagine if you approached your day the same way, viewing every choice through the lens of what is most important to you.

You can apply the same framework to the decisions you make. Just ask yourself one question: “Will this help me reach my goal?”

This article applies to everyone, not just athletes. Whatever you are trying to achieve. Build a business, grow a charity, become a professional athlete. You can always ask yourself that question.

And over time your success will start to feel almost automatic, too — because you’ll be doing a lot more of the things you need to do to reach your goals.

Sure, sometimes you’ll fail… but with time, persistence and focus, you’ll get there.

Hope you found this useful!
