Achieve Success by Living with Purpose
Posted 6 years ago
So when I was in 8th grade I dabbled in everything athletic. I wanted to be good at something but never made a commitment. The local coach at my club had played Davis Cup for Canada and he said one day in passing “if you trained really hard you could play at a school in the US and it was the best 4 years of my life.” From that day on I dedicated myself to becoming a better tennis player. At 17 I was offered many scholarships (which I believed was the only way out of Toronto and winter). I accepted Flagler College in St. Augustine, FL. For 4 years I had to pinch myself that I had created this wonderful atmosphere for myself. I loved every day and we won 2 NAIA National Championships. The lesson taught me to sacrifice in the present for my vision of the future. Now when I decide to do something I absolutely know I’ll achieve it! Thanks for the great call with Susan Sly!
As a mom, I encourage my 2 boys to go for everything with their whole heart. I am so proud of the men they are becoming!!
