George Leonard states that there are five steps to mastery, (Surrender to your Passion, Practice, Get a Guide, Visualize the Outcome, Play the Edge) these five steps relate to me in lacrosse. I surrendered to my passion of lacrosse when I first picked up the stick, learning from scratch and never stopping no matter how difficult it got. Practicing for me was throwing every day against a wall, net, or with a friend for hours. Getting a guide for me was adventurous. Every summer I traveled the nation going to camps and clinics learning a variety of ways to play. Visualizing the outcome is difficult, it requires for you to see all possible roads you can take to achieve the outcome. You cannot only focus on one or it will not work; you must be open to all variables you may have to surpass. Playing the edge is something that corresponds with practice in lacrosse. I would gain the edge by trying new things but then had to repeat them in practice for it to work when it came to game time. The hidden secrets I am showing in my video are something I have learned through experience. By playing for so long I have learned through trial and error. Also the varieties of coaches I have had over the years taught me different ways to achieve my goal.
