"Do. Or do not. There is no try"
Last night was the first night of @victorianrollerderbyleague opt in.
To celebrate 😅 I wore my fave Star Wars singlet. .
A lot can be said about the mindfulness of the Star Wars films. With immense hours of training and practice, Jedi gain a heightened awareness of the present moment, enhance their physical & mental capabilities, and develop some rad powers.
Similarly, mental preparedness and mindfulness is a huge part of roller derby. As skaters, we train for hours and hours a week, fatiguing both our body and brain. Control over our mental state and being is very important, in so many ways; nailing that new skill, team drafts and even just scrimmages/game day. .
"Do. Or do not. There is no try" is a quote that really resonates with me because it's about declaring you're going to do something, and then do it. Don't say you're going to try. Failure is good, it happens all the time and that's how we learn.
