Out Of The Mouth Of Babes

Posted by Tom Locke on February 1st, 2019 filed in Education, General, Life

Recently I had the pleasure of chatting with the daughter of a good friend.  Our topic was choosing the right career.

During our conversation we got to talking about “what puts a smile on your face” and attitude as it relates to competing.  This led her to sharing a related story with me on someone who had made an impression on her.

This ‘someone’ turned our to be a squash coach she had a few years back.  In his coaching, he constantly reminded her to smile and appreciate what she was doing.  This definitely assisted greatly with her attitude.  His catch phrase that has stuck with her was “Grin and Win” … and, as soon as she said it, she began to smile.

Thanks to this young lady, I am making a conscious effort to practice this.  It certainly instills a positive outlook.
