In a recent Parade issue, there was a story on one of the few women who coach boys’ high school football in the U.S., Natalie Randolph. It tells her story and how she is committed to helping her players score on the field and in life. She shared her coach’s advice for kids; however, I think these four points are good for us all to consider applying in our lives.
Have no fear
People concentrate too much on what others will say about them. If you know you can do something, just do it.
Show up every day
No matter how hard the previous day was, never give up.
It’s okay to be afraid
But it’s not okay to run away from what you’re afraid of.
Make good decisions
To do that, you must trust your instincts — and listen to the people around you.
Apply these concepts in your life, if you don’t already. I think this is good advice.
