3 Signs You Are Wasting Your Time With Basketball

May 12, 2017

Deep down, you know your basketball game is not where it needs to be.

So you can’t help but wonder:

“Am I wasting my time playing basketball?”

How To Tell If You Are Wasting Your Time. 

  1. “Good enough” has become the new standard. You don’t practice hard anymore. You don’t work on your game anymore. You are merely content with the play you have.

Being content with your game is fine, but make sure you don’t confuse “being content” with “settling for less” because you are too scared/lazy/tired to go for what you want. Life is too short to play games. You don’t want to waste yours.

  1. You always have a reason not to work on your craft. Isn’t it funny how some players say they want to be the best in basketball, but never actually take ACTION to make it happen?

Maybe they’re saying they want to improve their shot, or getting a tighter handle on the ball, or better IQ. But as soon as they say they want something, they sabotage their own plans by giving an endless list of excuses why they haven’t work on their game.

  1. Soical Media is your best friend. According to a recent study published by Nielsen, our youth on average is spending over 30 hours a week with their phones in their hand. That’s over 4 hours a day. How can you improve when you put more time into a device with no return on investment and will not help you improve game.

The Choice Is Yours

What would you regret more? Reaching for your dreams, or complaining about what could have been but never was? Walking the path that you’ve chosen for yourself, or walking someone else’s path just because you were told?.

You deserve more so here’s your chance.

No one knows what tomorrow will bring, but you have a choice today to improve your basketball game. That choice will be something you either look back on fondly, or do so with deep regret in your heart instead.

So here’s your pledge to basketball…..

I ———-, for one, have chosen to love basketball on my own terms. No more playing around with my game. No more self-defeating excuses.

Today is the start of a new me.
