I always used to think about performance (I can control) rather than result (compared to others). Training focuses on all the things you can control: mind & body (strength, stamina, speed, flexibility, technique, self-talk, grit) and how to prepare for (but not get anxious about) what you cannot control (wind, rain, heat, cold, other people, sh*t that happens). No plan is perfect. But the process of planning (thinking and self-control) is important.
People > Process > Progress > Performance
Whatever your challenges there is always at least one step that you can do to move nearer your goal.
Perhaps your next step is getting in touch.
