1ST HALF: LESSONS FROM MENTORS

My dad was my mentor but I learned from his mentor.  Lesson is you are always leaving a legacy

Never throw in the towel.

 

HALFTIME – THE KEY POINTS TO HELP YOU ON YOUR JOURNEY

BOOK: No Limits – John Maxwell –   <<Get it here>>

BOOK: Today Matters – John Maxwell – <<Get it here>>

HABIT:  Take time in the morning to be with my kids – start the day off right

HABIT:  I text my kids every day to see how they are doing

QUOTE:  Don’t tell them the answer, let them experience the answer – Christian DeVries

QUOTE: My faith in you does not make you great, it only helps you know that you have the power to be great – Boyd Hamlin

MEASURING STICK:  I stayed focused on daily task but never neglect my family

 

2nd HALF: OVERCOMING FAILURE

Opportunities are all around us, you just must look for them

What you are doing today is preparing you for something bigger tomorrow

Live into your passion – failure has a way of showing you the way to get there

 

IN THE LOCKER ROOM 

AH-HA MOMENT:  There is more to coaching than the technical, tactical, physical and psychological aspects of the game. I realized that I needed to change my coaching paradigm from “Athletic Focused” to “Athlete Centered” if I was going to really empower my athletes to reach their peak performance.
