World Series of Bowing – my biggest mental struggle of the year, came to an end.
I did not make any cuts, did not bowl well, did not pick up all my spares, was not present, was mentally beating myself up, drawning in a bad mindset but the struggle led to one of the biggest lesson I have learnt in a while.
Preparation does not always equal success, I gave it all to prepare for over 30 days committing every single day to what I believed would pay off, and it did. Not in the ways one would think, not in checks, not in self satisfaction but in an eye opener of how much it really takes to be a good athlete, a good bowler.
I spend a lot of time sitting in my own head, examining my weaknesses, finding ways to eliminate them. 4 days of intense bowling among best bowlers in the world had revealed my inconsistency in not just shot making but my mental game. Too many times I caught myself not being present, unfocused, having an environment determining who I was, not who I truly believe I am.
It takes a lot of courage to put oneself on a display, allowing others to follow the journey as it goes, facing failures, facing judgments nevertheless, a while ago I stopped worrying what others think, and this is where I found my purpose.
Thank you for all the time you spend reading my posts, watching my videos.
Thank you for all the messages, gifts, kind words.
What motivates me it has everything to do with the people I have been lucky enough to inspire, what drives me is the desire to be the best, and as long as there is a belief I can, nothing will stop me.
Much love ❤
