“Run from what’s comfortable, forget safety, live where you fear to live,” said a thirteenth century poet and mystic who had got tired of the familiar and the routine.
Whilst there’s no point in being uncomfortable for the sake of it, if we want the sport ourselves to grow and improve, then we need to push beyond what we are currently doing, which will involve some discomfort.
Tackling the subject “Being comfortable about being uncomfortable” at next weekend’s Changing the Future event is Gemma Fay, perfectly qualified having become Scotland’s most internationally-capped (203 times) football player, had a spell as an actress and recently took a change of direction in a new career with rugby.

Growth mindset has been a hot topic in recent years. For those who have not yet come across the term, in a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work - brains and talent are just the starting point.
So, if you are an athlete, a coach, parent, club leader or volunteer you can become an even better version of yourself through learning about growth mindset.
To help you do so we are delighted to welcome Jamie McBrearty, Mindset Manager, Leisure and Culture Dundee, who will be speaking at our Changing the Future weekend on 20th and 21st January at the sportscotland National Sports Training Centre in Largs.
