There is always a certain scent in the air when you hang around different sport arenas. And the truth is that the way you think about this scent will directly reflect your chances of success in the specific sport. If the smell of the locker rooms in ice hockey arenas makes you feel sick, then you probably should try a new sport. If the scent of manure is something you can’t get used to then you probably won’t like horse riding for too long.

So the next time you are going for a workout session or you attend a sports competition, think about the scent and whether it means success to you or not.
