Mental Skills for Athletes: Relationships

Swimming and triathlon can be two very lonely sports.

As athletes we should not forget that we remain reliant on our relationships with other people.

For some it is possible to proceed alone, to operate within a silo, but the most successful athletes succeed by leveraging their relationships. They rely on partners, children, Moms and Dads, friends, training partners and more.

Don’t focus on the “I”, consider the “we” and the “us” – the payoff is exponential.

We don’t have to be lone wolves. Not only do we have our friends and families but countless connections across social media networks who can help and inspire.

Use your relationships to maximize the benefits across all elements of your life.
