Life Lessons from Sports – Mia Hamm
“Sports can do so much. They’ve given me a framework: meeting new people, confidence, self-esteem, discipline, and motivation. All these things I learned, whether I knew I was learning them or not, through sports.” – Mia Hamm
Learning to compete, remain focused, composed under pressure, motivated when the chips are down and committed to follow-through in sport will train you for life’s challenges. Just about every parent is particularly keen on having me help their son or daughter with their life skills. One of the great things about the competitive area is that it teaches many lessons about life. The lessons learned can easily be applied to just about every life situation; home, school, work, and relationships. Many of my students and parents report that the mental skills they have learned have rally helped them in other areas of their life.
