Wanting the 'outcome' but not prepared to be part of the 'process'

I think I picked this up from a recent Judy Murray post somewhere on social media.

The idea that we might be wanting the outcome but not being prepared to be part of the process.

I love the idea of being able to play the guitar - an outcome.  

So I tried it.

Once.

I was horrible. My sausage fingers got in the way.  It was hard.

So I quit.  I was not prepared to stick at the process.  Even for a second session!  I clearly didn't want it 'that' badly.

So how badly do you want it?

Whatever your 'outcome goal' is?

Are you prepared to hit that basket of serves 3 times a week, off you own back, when the wind is blowing a gale it and it's crappy out?

That extra run, session in the gym, skipping rope, warm-up/cool down with quality? 

Eat well. Rest well?

Are you prepared to sacrifice?

Have you got the P.R.I.D.E?

The Personal

Responsibility

in 

Developing

Excellence.

And if you don't know what it takes, that's the job of the coach, the parent, the teacher - to show the way, to articulate the journey, to create the buy-in.

But ultimately, it's water and horses.
