"Role models are fine. But not when they get in the way of embracing our reality. The reality of not enough time, not enough information, not enough resources. The reality of imperfection and vulnerability."

"Instead of competing against others, build #grit by competing against yourself." Really insightful interview with Lindsey Vonn that's WORTH SHARING with young athletes. Vonn answers:

— Having achieved everything an athlete could dream of, why she still does it.
— How she's maintained her love of the sport.
— Worst advice she's been given.

Inarguably the greatest female skier of all time talks comebacks, building true grit, and taking on men.

Here’s a 🎁 that’ll keep giving over and over again...! Share this with the athletes in your charge – and parents too.

Nick Foles, from backup to Superbowl MVP, on #failure: "I think the big thing is don’t be afraid to fail,” Foles said. “In our society today, with Instagram and Twitter, it’s a highlight. It’s all the good things. When you look at it, you have a bad day, you think your life isn’t as good, you’re failing. Failure is a part of life. It’s a part of building character and growing. Without failure, who would you be? I wouldn’t be up here if I hadn’t fallen thousands of times, made mistakes. We all are human. We all have weaknesses. Just being able to share that and be transparent."

This pretty much sums up what the pursuit of excellence looks like: Right this way… Take that… Deal with this… Deal with that… Think you've made it?! Think again! … Ok, go ahead now… Oh, no you don’t… You’re on🔥! Not so quick… Beat it💨. Made it. No, you didn’t… Try, try again.

Do something every day that builds your mental strength!

"Mental health is *AS* important in athletes and players as physical health. Making sure that everyone is “fit“, in the broadest sense, is essential and try not to just assume. Spend time learning about this area as much as you would invest in physical conditioning. Vital." —Nick Levett

"Public service announcement for athletes (elite, age-group, and weekend warriors) and coaches: Before you spend even a minute worrying about ice baths, foam rolling, graduated compression, electrical muscle stimulation, or supplements, EAT then SLEEP."

Forget training load and biomechanics. A surprising new study suggests that avoiding injury might come down to something far simpler.

"...lead from the front line, not from some safe and comfortable ivory tower."

Check out this email from Tesla's Elon Musk. This line made me 😯...!

"I will then go down to the production line and perform the same task that they perform."

A great reminder: "...leadership is not about protection — it’s about connection." ⚡️

'Children learn accountability when they have models of accountability.' They learn to have a positive relationship with mistakes when elders model – daily – the value of mistakes.

Here's the thing, you cannot instil values. Yet, you can do this:

Something to chew on...
