Hard on self, not down on self…

Tilt is a term, I’m learning from my son Taylor, that has specific meaning in the video gaming world. When teammates “tilt,” it means they lose it in their team game and blame others, not themselves. Teammates tilt and don’t take responsibility.

Tay sees this in his video games. He sees all kinds of amateur gamers who are hard on their team, easy on themselves. Normal. Pro’s reverse the amateur equation. Pro’s (I mean masters in their domain) are hard on self without getting down on self. Hard on self not down on self. Hard on self is the key. You will not achieve greatness without the ability to think critically about yourself. The elite are always hardest on themselves. Are you?

Everyday, I see teammates on tilt. They are blaming other teammates, not themselves. This is natural. Don’t continue to do what comes naturally, friend. Build a second nature. Learn to develop the discipline of being hard on self without getting down on self.

Hard on self, not down on self. Good…
