Part of what I have the honor of doing as a Perspective Coach is working with athletic teams. To be able to speak with, come alongside, and encourage coaches and their student-athletes is something that means a lot to me.
This post is for every level of athlete, the coaches that lead them, and the administration and parents that support them.
3 things to keep in front of you to be successful as a team...
1. On the field: Your opponent. Be aware of your surroundings. Know where they are. Anticipate so that you can create. Momentum over time is born from taking advantage of every single moment right on time.
2. In the classroom: Your books. Get your hand in the air. Ask questions. Be engaged. Soak up as much wisdom as you can, so that you can apply it to make a difference around you.
And that leads us into the last one...
3. In the community: Your opportunities. Look around. Be mentally present, as well as physically. See the need. Anticipate it. Step in to do something about it. Make a difference in someone else's life today.
Here is the "secret sauce"
The key ingredient that holds these 3 things together...
I said it the other day on Twitter (HERE)...but it bears repeating.
Not for what you can get from it, rather what you can bring to it.
Do that, and watch how fast your #culture changes.
I hope this does encourage you today.
Whether you are an athletic administrator, coach, student-athlete, or parent.
Keep your opponents, books, and opportunities in front of you...so that your experience on the field, in the classroom, and in your community is better because of you.
Honor every relationship you've been given.
If you'll do that...results follow.
And as always...enjoy the journey!
