In December of 2015, I laid in a hospital bed in a foreign country away from all my friends, family, and everything I knew. I had just undergone surgery to replace the damaged cartilage in my left knee, an injury that doctors told me would end my professional career. As I laid there, my leg was in more pain than I had ever experienced in my life, it still didn’t amount to the pain of thinking that the one thing I had invested all my time and energy into, the game I loved so much, had come to an end. I realized two very important things at that moment in time.
My name is Josh Young, 12-year basketball pro and founder of Competition of One. You weren’t born to be average. You weren’t born to be good. You were born to be GREAT! My goal is to help you walk in that greatness by helping you get clear in these three areas.
As athletes, many times we are neglecting the best parts of who we are to pursue a sport that will inevitably one day come to an end. I want you to understand that the greatest part of your existence is not wrapped up in your ability to kick, throw, hit, or shoot a ball. You are destined for greatness and YOU are the only person that can ever stop you from living it.
