|That face, the sheer pride that overtakes the entire team, that is why I love|
my job. Moments like this last forever in their hearts, and in mine.
The challenging part of my job is when these athletes fall short. When they may not reach the standards they have set for themselves, and they begin to get discouraged. Because of this, I am always on the lookout for different ways to inspire my athletes. It's one thing for me to believe in them… but it's another thing entirely when they are able to believe in themselves.
|They are, and always have been, "ONE family, ONE team,|
with ONE dream" and I couldn't be more blessed to be a
part of this amazing family.
In my last blog post, I mentioned the group, I Am That Girl, and how they are working hard on a global mission to help inspire women of all ages to be strong, to be ambitious and to be passionate about their lives. I started reading the book, "I Am That Girl," which I would absolutely recommend to EVERY female out there, and last night I came upon a piece of wisdom that seems to fit perfectly with my girls and their theme of the season:
"If you want to live a life driven by passion, if you want to make a difference in the world, to fight for something bigger than yourself and prove to others that yes, one person can make a difference, you're in for one of the hardest battles you'll ever fight. But it's also the most rewarding." -Alexis Jones
|I couldn't believe it when I came across the words,|
"Driven By Passion" in Alexis' book. So perfect!
