I Got Drafted - So Now What?

The road to becoming a professional basketball player is a long one filled with hard work, sacrifice and commitment.

Every year, a handful of players have their dreams fulfilled when their names are announced on draft day.

In some cases, playing basketball professionally has been a life long goal. So you could just imagine the sense of relief to finally make it.

So you've made it, now what?

The "now what" part is important because while it's really easy to get caught up in the excitement of the moment, it doesn't stop there.

Life doesn't stop and nor should any of us. Being selected is one thing but staying there requires heart, effort and skill.
This could turn out to be just as hard if not harder than your original goal.

This is part of the reason why it's so important to continually set new goals once the old ones have been reached.

Setting new goals helps us to organize ourselves, maintain our focus and motivates us by providing a target to works towards.

So remember the next time you achieve a goal. - It doesn't stop there
Give yourself credit by celebrating but don't pat yourself on the back too long.

When you reach a goal, set a new one and continue to push forward.
