I have been asked so many times how long has it taken me to be at the top of my game when I was still playing.
The answer is simple. It took me 10 years. Why do I say 10 years ? Because 2010 was the best year of my career.
I was super conditioned I dominated the Scrum. That year everything fell into place. For each player it is different. Some achieve it way earlier.
Why did it take me so long ? Honestly I don’t know. Maybe it was because I was more focused on being a strong ball carrier than being focused enough on the scrums.
But what I do is that at the end of 2009 I put a plan into place that changed my life.
I followed these steps
Identified the Sources of what was holding me back
Created a Strategy to achieve Ultimate Performance
Made Tactical Moves to implement the strategy
That year I knew what I wanted to achieve and I knew how I would achieve it. This process led to me becoming Player of the year in 2010
