It's All About Attempts, Ask Alex

Don't believe me? The leading goal scorer in the NHL this past year was Alexander Ovechkin with 50 goals. Nobody mentions that he had a league high 398 shot attempts (over 100 more than any other player.) The leading rusher in the NFL last year was Adrian Peterson 1485 yards. Nobody mentions that he had a league high 327 rush attempts. The NBA scoring champion this past season was Stephen Curry with 30.1 point per game. Nobody mentions that he had a league high 20.2 shot per game average. Trust me, I get it, when you're the best you get more opportunities. Christ, I'm not living under a rock but could it be they have more chances because they took more chances? Could it be the amount of attempts provide more confidence hence more success? Could it be they are actually getting better because they get more attempts? Could it be they're just lucky? Not sure. All I know is the highest levels of success are in correlation with the highest levels of attempts - year after year after year.

Personally I think this is something we can translate into our own lives individually, case by case. Challenge yourself. Think about it. At the very least this is something to highly consider. If you want more win's, more yes's, more dollar's then you need more attempts. Will you be the top dog? The leading scorer? The best?  I don't know. You'll have to attempt it.
