Over the last few months, all of you have blown me away with your kindness and commitment to the blog. On average, about 1000 of you read every blog I type and send out into the blog-o-sphere. It is truly humbling to have so many people reading my blog in about 10 different countries all over the planet.
When I started this blog over 3 years ago, I thought I would be writing for myself and maybe my family and a couple dozen of my former players who are now high school and college coaches. To say the least, I am overwhelmed with gratitude because all of you with your messages, emails, comments, etc. have kept me inspired to keep giving back as much as I can.
With that said, I would very much like your help in writing my next blog. I plan on writing it on Tuesday morning, so over the next 4 days, I would like to have as many of you write in my comment section below or to my personal email address the answer to this question:
"If you could sit down with your 15 year-old self, and give that young person one piece of sound advice that you wish someone would have shared with you, what would that advice be?"
My next blog will be entitled "Advice to My 15-Year Old Self"...as you could imagine. I would like to share as much of your advice in that blog as possible because I know how many parents, coaches, and young athletes read this on a regular basis. I want to have one blog to share all of our "secrets" to a healthier, happier, and more confident future.
I appreciate your help, and I look forward to learning from you!!!
