Updated: Aug 5, 2019

Reason 3: You haven’t invested enough in yourself

This is not only about money. This is bigger than that.

If you want to get good at anything it requires a certain level of skill/knowledge and the right mindset.

A commonly held belief in sports is that of an athlete’s performance 10% is skill, but 90% is mental.


Why do superstars in the NBA, the best basketball league in the world, end up not performing well and fizzling out?

Is it skill level?

Probably not. They are among the top 500 hundred players IN THE WORLD!

It’s not skills.

It’s mental. It’s emotional.

They put in all the years and dedication to develop the skills so they could reach the NBA.

They have all the skills that they need to compete at the highest levels, so what stops them?

Their own emotions and mental state.

We see players go in slumps and then come out of it.

An NBA season is non-linear, much like our lives. Ups and downs.
