"Imagine a stadium filled with retired amateur and professional athletes. How many of them, do you think, have transitioned to a satisfying business career? My educated guess: barely enough to field one team. That’s too many on the sidelines and not enough in the game!
Most retired athletes struggle to reinvent themselves after years of complete immersion in what they believe they were born to do. And all those high school and college athletes who are banking on going pro…what happens to the ones who aren’t chosen?
If you were an amateur, collegiate or Olympic athlete, you spent most of your free time training for the sport you love. You used your formative years to improve and dominate in your sport. There was little time left to dedicate to education, much less to personal relationships that could benefit you in a professional life outside of the game.
The transition from athlete to employee can seem rough.
But it doesn’t have to be that way."
(From WIN AGAIN)
Whether you were a professional or an amateur athlete, you always played your heart out. Throughout your time in your chosen sport, you believed you were doing what you were born to do.
Athletes, however, have brief careers, and most end their sporting lives in high school or college.
