Archery is a Discipline

By Mark V. Lonsdale

Be assured, it takes self discipline to become competent in any precision shooting sport, particularly archery.

…. and then being willing to put in the time, effort, and training.

It takes discipline to write a long term athlete development (LTAD) training plan and then stick to it.

It takes discipline to go to training when your friends want to go play or party

It takes discipline to get up early and hit the gym when you would rather sleep in

It takes discipline to shoot 200+ arrows a day when the little voice in your head wants to call it quits after 100

It takes discipline to work though the muscle aches and keep training

It takes discipline when you have to get up early and drive 10 hours to compete in an out of state championship

Remember, every day you don’t train, the other competitors are out there training to beat you. The difference between a champion and an “also ran” is discipline
