Last week I talked about the 3 lies snowboarders tell themselves – but there’s one really big lie that I didn’t mention.
I don’t get enough time to snowboard
I’ve heard this excuse from so many people:
I don’t have enough time to progress my snowboarding.
That’s bs. In fact, the one thing we’re all born with is time. We all have 24 hours in a day.
Don’t get me wrong, there are some of you who have kids or families and yes, that does complicate things and take up time, but a majority of you guys haven’t settled down yet. The site stats tells me that most of you are single and between 18-35.
You have time – you just haven’t taken advantage of it.
What are you doing with your time?
It’s really up to you what you do with your time.
7 years ago I was in Uni with only 2 days of snowboarding under my belt. Now I’m running a snowboard company and I get to travel the world and snowboard as much as I want.
I used my time to pursue the things I loved and in this case it was snowboarding and freedom.
I can talk to any number of people in Whistler and they’ll all tell me similar stories involving falling in love with snowboarding and moving to Whistler. They used their time to move themselves closer to the snow and take the risks necessary to do what they love.
If you don’t have time to snowboard, you probably just aren’t trying hard enough. And that’s fine, not everyone wants to snowboard 24/7, but there’s almost always a way to find the time and energy to get what you want, it just depends how much you want it.
What you do with your time is up to you, but I highly encourage you not to waste it. You can do amazing things with your time and it really is your most valuable asset.
Don’t waste it.
