Even though I teach students about math I have always tried to impart life lessons. Even though I think we do a great job with the sport of softball I have always tried to teach so much more than the game.
I tell the girls all the time that the most powerful thing in the world is an intelligent / strong-willed woman. This week after the conclusion of our EOC testing I showed my classes a video of John Croyle and Nick Saban speaking in 2012 at a University of Alabama "Coaching Character" seminar.
Some of the concepts that were discussed: 1) know who you are 2) know why you do what you do 3) do what you do with passion 4) be a relentless competitor 5) be the best you can be on a daily basis 6) do not play the opponent or the scoreboard---play every play the same way.
I truly believe in the above concepts. I wish all of our ProStar Family would find their purpose in life and live that life with a passion that transcends our jobs / our families / our teams.
Are you going to impress some one? Are you going to impact some one? or are you going to inspire some one? There is a difference!
