It’s a new year and our iC family is honored to welcome a new Junior Correspondent to our team. Please extend a warm welcome to Biscuit from 911 Athletics in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina! Tune in this year to hear what’s on Biscuit’s mind and join in on her inspiring experiences throughout her 2022 cheer journey.


In this first entry of 2022, Biscuit shares her TOP 5 TIPS for helping peers and fellow athletes achieve their goals this season!

1.Make a Commitment

Goals require commitment and dedication. There’s no other way around it! If you are struggling with committing to a specific goal, go back and start the process over. You may not have identified the goal just right, or you may be lacking the necessary motivation to see it through.

2. Keep Track of Your Progress

Just as it’s important to put all of your goals down on paper, it’s equally important to track your progress. Celebrate even the small victories! 

3. Break It Down

It’s good to have big and very ambitious goals, but many times, you can make them more attainable and realistic by breaking them down. A set of five smaller goals that will get you to your ambitious main goal can be a lot more manageable and a lot less overwhelming. 

4. Keep Your Eye on the Prize

Thinking about the big picture is important, especially with long-term goals. While there will be times when you’ll be so focused on working to move forward that you may not consider the end result, it’s necessary to take time to think about where you’re going. Envisioning your success can help keep you motivated. 

5. Focus on Positive Thinking

As cliché as it may be, positive thinking can empower you to reach success. If you consistently think negatively, you may be sabotaging your entire goal process. Positive thinking and self-affirming mantras really can get you through the most challenging parts of reaching your goals!

Here’s to an amazing season cheer friends!
