"If principle is good for anything, it is worth living up to." Benjamin Franklin
In the world of sports, college and professional athletes are often elevated. As examples for younger athletes, much is expected of them. Good choices will bring them to this place...not-so-good choices and they wind up in a place of rejection and loneliness. An EXEMPLARY EXISTENCE isn't always easy but it is always rewarding.
As sportmoms we also aspire to be EXEMPLARY in our lifestyle. One of the ways to do this is to be the #1 fan of your athlete. Here are a few important principles:
FEEL: EXCITED about the life of your athlete.
The secret to success is enthusiasm...practice being excited.
DO: EXPRESS your joy for their accomplishments.
"If you want children to improve, let them overhear the nice things
you say about them to others." Haim Ginott
BE: ELIMINATE destructive habits that may be copied.
A little action is worth more than a lot of talk.
An EXEMPLARY EXISTENCE is a sought-after component of our Christian lifestyle. Here are basic principles:
FEEL: EXCITED about Jesus.
"We annouce to you what we have seen and heard...so you too may be filled
with joy." I John 1:3-4 paraphrased
DO: EXPRESS your excitement.
"...let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify
your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:6 NIV
BE: ELIMINATE the old ways and ENTER the new ones.
"...if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come:The old has gone, the new is
here!" 2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV
AS OUR PRINCIPLES GO - SO GOES OUR EXEMPLARY EXISTENCE
Blessings...as your EXEMPLARY EXISTENCE pleases God, causes joy in others, and brings satisfaction to you.
