It’s possible to be a professional eSport athlete without having a professional mindset. Getting paid to play is usually achieved by attaining a certain level of performance. However, developing that play into a championship means dedication, hard work, and a mindset that allows for you to overcome defeats and strive for victory.
There’s always the motivation of wanting to win. Everybody has that. But a champion needs, in his attitude, a motivation above and beyond winning. ~Pat Riley

I see a lot of beginner (and advanced!) professional athletes with bad goals and a bad understanding of how goals should and do function. You are limiting yourself and your potential. You owe it to educate yourself on how to set the right goals, and approach training with the right mindset. Winning a championship doesn’t happen the day of the match. It starts years before when the champion decided that today was the day.
