First Rate You

Coach Erik here: 

Growing up I wanted to be the next Larry Bird. Then I wanted to be the next Mark Allen. After that I wanted to be the next Bob Harper. Then one day I decided to be the best Erik Hajer I could be and my life transformed.

Take away: Instead of trying to be a second rate version of somebody else, strive to be a first rate version on yourself.
