The Struggles: Make it Happen
Working a full time job, 10+ hours in the office a day is draining, not to mention it interferes with my training schedule for volleyball! If you want to pursue a career, along with a professional sports career, you need to have some extreme discipline and motivation. How can you pass up an incredible job opportunity? My thoughts exactly; I couldn’t.
Working as a Project Architect and training every day is what I need to do in order to continue on a path towards my goals. I don’t want to be known as just an athlete. I didn’t spend seven years in Architecture school and completing my Masters in Infrastructure Planning, not to do this. If you want it bad enough, nothing will ever stop you. I train at 5am at least three times a week, and in the evenings after work, sometimes double sessions. If you want it bad enough, nothing will ever get in your way.
Get into a good routine, try and get to sleep early, eat well, sacrifice going out for drinks with co-workers, because in the end, it’s all about you and the lifestyle you choose to have.
