Daily Athlete Principles

Defining your goals is a start, but without values to back them up, you will fail to see their importance when others question your dedication. Vice versa, if you have values that lack any true aim, you will lose sight of why you are doing what you are doing.

By defining your values & goals you give yourself a clear directive for how each day should be spent. And from there, your most important daily actions become that much easier to sort out.

Resipiscence

res·i·pis·cence  /rɛsɪˈpɪsəns/
noun: Change to a better frame of mind. To return to a sane, sound, or correct view or position.

It took me a long time to discover this word, but it’s one I have been trying to find for a few years. The reason it’s so important is that I believe it perfectly describes the Aha! moments many athletes have in the middle of a long season. Resipiscence often occurs when an athlete gets tired of repetitive losing and failure. In this moment they come to the realization that they need to make some serious changes or revert back to a previous positive mindset.

The problem is when the frequency of resipiscent moments becomes too far apart. For many, the rate at which they come about can be weeks, months, and in some cases, years. Our goal is to help reduce the ratio and to ensure that you are continually realigning yourself with your best frame of mind.

Arete

a·rête /əˈreɪt; əˈrɛt/
noun: the notion of the fulfillment of purpose or function: the act of living up to one’s full potential.

To avoid the common fault of complacency, you have to aim for your highest self; the best version of you; your peak potential. This can be done a number of different ways, but ultimately, they all aim towards one common goal: Making the most of this sport that has been given to you.  The man or woman of Arete is a person of the highest effectiveness; they use all their faculties—strength, bravery, and wit—to achieve real results

By creating a future that you find desirable, then designing better habits to achieve that future, you are giving yourself the opportunity to build something that is genuinely worth your efforts. The last shift, however, is that you must prepare for the challenges. In order to achieve anything worthy of effort, you are going to have to endure suffering, sacrifice, and failure. But with the right mindset, it becomes obvious that these are an integral part of the process.
