For the past few years my daughter Lily has played on a select soccer team. The name of the team is the CUSA Courage; they are coached by Janelle Fritschie.
I have watched my daughter grow up as she has played on this team. This is her last season with this coach and team before she goes on to play in high school and maybe beyond that, if that’s what she wants. Anyway, her coach is a very hard-working, caring person. She has had some challenges dealing with the team, nothing major, just the stuff you deal with as a coach of a competitive team. One of the things Coach Janelle does is send the girls motivational messages and words of wisdom. And, many of them apply to business. A few weeks ago, she sent this story in and I really liked it. So, read through it and ask yourself if you’re a winner or a whiner and think about how your attitude determines your altitude.
I try really hard to have a good attitude but, like all of us, I stray at times as well. Thanks for the reminder, Coach Janelle, and thanks for all you have done for my daughter.
Here’s a photo of Lily and her coach and her team.
