1. Practice everyday
In order to get better you need to be able to practice on what you want to improve on. There’s no other way to get better that to practice everyday and train.
2. No Excuses
Don’t make up excuses on why you can’t go or you don’t feel like practicing today. In order to improve you have to be able to make time to be able to practice. If you miss a day of practice, you would have to make that day up on a practice and train twice as hard.
3. Do drills that will actually help you
Don’t just do drills that are easy or drills that you’ve done before. Do drills that will help you improve and get better at what you want to improve. It’s okay if you fail, you learn from your mistakes. Not every professional player didn’t just get good all of a sudden, they trained every single day until they mastered it. Even still they would practice to make sure they won’t mess up.
4. Work hard
Even though you’re practicing everyday, you have to work really hard in order to improve yourself and get better. Yes practicing everyday helps, but it doesn’t help if your hardly doing anything to reach towards your goals. So you always have to train very hard every practice in order to reach your goals.
5. Know your limits
Practice everyday, but don’t practice for four hours everyday. That’s not good because after you do that your body will stop functioning the way you want to because you’re getting your body more tired and sore. Plus, you can get an injury from practicing too much because your body is telling to stop for the day, if you don’t stop then you’ll start getting craps or sometimes pull one of your ligaments that you have been using a lot during that practice.
6. Eat healthy
If you don’t have a good health, then it will difficult for you to get better and improve yourself. The reason I say this is because if all you eat is junk food you won’t a lot of energy to go out and practice, you’ll get tired quicker, and also you’ll feel really lazy because all that junk food you ate is just sitting around your stomach. And instead of getting stronger, you’ll be gaining weight and not being able to play like you use to.
7. Don’t fool around
Every time you go to practice you need to be serious and not just be fooling around all the time. In order to improve yourself, you need to take it serious and be focused throughout the whole practice. If you fool around then you won’t get any better, you’ll be in the same level as you were yesterday. You’re just wasting your time fooling around in practice and not getting any better.
8. Play with heart
Use what you’ve been practicing in the game because that’s another way where you can get better and improve yourself. If you do what you’ve been doing at practice in the game, you’re getting closer to completing your goal. That’s another step closer to fulfill your dream.
9. Ignore the Negativity
There’s always going to be someone that wants you to fail and not be successful. They try to put you down and like to mess with your head because they don’t want you to have a successful life. They want you to quit and not push your limits, they don’t want to see you having a better life than them because in this world it’s all about competition and see who’s better than who.
10. Don’t Be Lazy
Once you know what you want to do or a certain goal you want to complete, you have to go and work for it. Don’t just sit on your butt and expect that you’ll reach your goal. Depending on what you want to do, you need to be able to work hard in order to reach your goal. Nothing is given to you, you have to earn it.
