How do we become who we want to be? In my experience of raising our own 6 children and coaching 30 years in sports- the ideas of who we want to be start with a dream or vision. They are a culmination of experiences that we give our children. They are what we see WHO we see, and where we see things happen. When young people are exposed to things they start to think about who they are now and who they want to be. When I coached at Brown, I will never forget going to a prep school tourney at Christmas time back in the mid 2000’s my daughter Meaghan was 9 years old. I took the view books of prep schools home and gave them to her. Her eyes lit up cautiously-Meaghan was and still is a deep thinker. I know she looked at the pictures in the books and dreamed to one day be at a prep school. Now at that time I had no idea that Meaghan would go on to attend Nobles and then onto to Boston University and have two incredible educational experiences. But what I DO know is that the seeds and ideas were planted in her head, and that it allowed her so see what she could become. If we challenge our children and are good examples to them and teach them to have the best core values and also give them the best experiences, they will rise to the challenges we put before them and achieve! They will become leaders and more importantly great humans that will go onto to do incredible things to make a better world for all of us! #seeitbeit #itstartswiththekids
