We asked the student-athletes for feedback on their experiences using the Sevwins app. One response that stood out came from an 18-year-old college freshman who really felt that Sevwins has helped him increase his self-reflection skills. Read on to hear his thoughts on Sevwins.
Student Athlete and College Freshman:
The Sevwins daily checks have helped me exponentially increase the skills of both self-reflection and taking life one day at a time. Measuring my daily lock, block, talk, and energy have taught me to really reflect and see if I am putting my best effort and committing to everything I do.
When it comes to self-improvement, honesty and constructive criticism work. The daily checks helped me get honest with myself and allowed me to grow.
I will never forget one of my first reflections that I did with Sevwins. It wasn’t a good day for me and all of my lock, block, and talks were two to four stars. I then looked at it and was immediately angry with myself. I then asked, “How can I expect to be the best if I can’t honestly say I gave my best effort in everything I did today?” This was a wakeup call for me and since then I have focused on my effort level in everything I do, and I think it has made a drastic difference.
Another thing that the checks have helped me with is taking life one day at a time. Improvement is made daily, and the checks have taught me how to focus on today and live in the present. In final, the checks have taught me to go out and create my success by focusing and reflecting daily.
Thank you to everyone at Sevwins.
