Leeks, spuds and pumpkins for the win!

Don’t you just love autumn? The colours alone are gorgeous.

But what has that got to do with you holding it together in competition?!

Here’s a few things that can make you a better competitor that I was reflecting on during a traditional harvest service whilst surrounded by local produce (good job it’s a vegetable growing area. Cattle would’ve been awkward).

Take time to look back.

Whatever your spirituality (and you’re a grown up, I’m not going to tell you what to believe, that’s your job!), harvest services are about taking time out and looking back over the season. Do the same on your competitive journey– take notes, record results, see how you’re progressing towards your goals. If you never look back, you’ll never see just how far you’ve come!

Attitude of Gratitude

Gratitude is key. Complainers sap energy- both their own and that of others. But gratitude for what you’ve got and focusing on what you have, rather than don’t have, will give you a better idea of the resources you possess already that can help you achieve your goals, if you USE them!

Think in seasons

Another great thing about harvest service is that it re-connects you with the land, which the seasonal nature of the Earth. This is an important piece in competition. It’s not a never-ending linear process and there is a time for ramping up the pace, and a time to rest… Time to prep, and time to get working!
