Own it and give yourself a pat on the back!
Challenge yourself - Maybe you are trying to improve your score over the last year or you're aiming for gold or maybe just want to ace your handspring at the gym. Take time to visualize your goals and plan out how to achieve them. This will help you to have a clear path to a successful journey
Do what makes you happy- It can be sometimes stressful especially when competitions are around the corner or training a new gymnastics move.
