Letter to my younger self is back this year, as we honour the 2018 draft class. Next up is former Saint and Bomber Brendon Goddard, who lets his younger self know to expect challenges out of his storied career.
Get yourself ready for the craziest roller-coaster you’re likely to ride in your life… a roller-coaster filled with ecstasy and misery.
Observe, listen, ask questions, expect and receive feedback — it’s the only way to improve and get better.
You’re likely to face challenges that will shape you. The people you meet, your coaches, and most importantly your teammates, will help create the man, the husband and father you will be.
You get out what you put in… so get ready for the grind.
Always have perspective and balance. Keep in mind that things are never as bad they seem, or conversely, things are never as good as they seem!
Cherish every minute, because it will be over before you know it!
P.S don’t expect anything less than great, but find a calm way of demanding it!
