Bullseye! How To Hit The Bullseye Easily At The Basketball Court
Bullseye! My 2 favorite sports, ice hockey, basketball and when I think of both these sports I do think of a bullseye. Becuase both sports are about putting an object into a net! Yesterday I decided to go over and shoot some baskets at the courts near my place.
Now, the goal of basketball is to get the ball into the basket! From the Free Throw Line it is 15 feet to the basket! I haven’t played basketball in many years and it was soon very clear that my skills were not at the same level as when I played the game. Frustration clearly was setting in. I was missing every shot from the free throw line. It was not fun.
Check out what I did to change this quickly and easily:
How did I hit the bullseye?
Here is what did I do to have success at practicing Free Throws!
So what does this have to do with Health and Fitness and Your goals? Everything! How many times do we set goals to exercise, reduce our weight, eat better, get more sleep, drink more water and quit before we have success? Maybe if we began to see the bullseye from a much closer distance and practice the skill before we move on we would feel better about the success we have. And maybe that success would make us an expert at that closer distance so we could move back a few inches and be willing to begin again to create more success, maybe even bigger successes.
