If you are experiencing a setback, an injury, a fall, for whatever reason, focus on the rise friend.💗⁣ ⁣ I like to think of the setbacks, injuries and failures in life as inevitable but growth from them is more up to us, more optional, more in our control.⁣ ⁣ Therefore, the focus on the rise is the growth process in my mind.

Or if an athlete is lacking a certain skill that "naaah you are not good at this, you don't need to practice"? . No, it sounds ridiculous… Self Development, Athlete, Floral Tops, Gym, Funny, Instagram Posts, Women, Top Flowers

This is my face when I hear people say that there's no room for vulnerability and authenticity in pro or competitive sports. "Oh man, this bs again?"
