Staying motivated 👍

With few competitions being held, it can be difficult to stay motivated for athletes but Para shooter McKenna Geer shared some encouraging word.

"...this is the year of perseverance. This is the year to keep your head down and keep chipping away at the goals and dreams you have set for yourself."

Training has been different. For every good score day, there are a handful of.... learning opportunities. 😉 The calendar holds few competitions for the next year, and it can be difficult to stay motivated some days. But this is the year of perseverance. This is the year to keep your head down and keep chipping away at the goals and dreams you have set for yourself. Maybe your dream is to be an Olympic/Paralympic champion. Maybe your dream is to eat better, exercise more, or start that new hobby you’ve been thinking about. Or maybe your goal is to learn how to prioritize moments of quiet in an otherwise hectic life. Whatever your dreams are, they are worth it. I’ve worked through all of these goals to a certain extent during the last six months. Today, I made a plan for smallbore training that was derailed due to some range maintenance 20 shots after I started this morning. I didn’t want to lug all of my gear upstairs to shoot air gun after spending so much time getting set up for smallbore. But I did. That perseverance allowed for an even better air gun session than what I would have been able to accomplish downstairs today. Learning more grace and patience has allowed moments like today to happen. I’m starting to reach goals I set for my self in February, in the midst of “better circumstances “ You may not be able to change the circumstances, but you can control your attitude and how you approach them. This year wasn’t what anyone had planned, but we can choose to look for the good in our days. What’s something you worked on over the last six months? What brings a moment of light to your day? #Tokyo2020 #Tokyo2020ne #Paralympics #Motivated #Comeback #Dreams #Goals #Perseverance #FasterHigherStronger #Shooting #Sports #GoodEnergy #PumpedUp #Positivity @usashooting @shootingparasport @teamusa
