Break Down Social & Emotional Barriers With Your Student Athlete
Communication is becoming harder and it doesn't seems at times like things are not balanced with how you communicate effectively with your student athlete. While parent engagement is an important part of their child's development, many times there can be a disconnect in the relationship due to unidentified factors. Student athletes today are led in so many different directions by so many different people who feel their interest and voice is just as valuable as yours. Parents, break down your student athletes emotional barriers by finding out what makes them fear success. Encourage with positive affirmation that you understand their fears. Break down their social barriers by LISTENING. Once you have accomplished both of these initiatives, you have made room in their mental cockpit to co-pilot their potential mentally, socially, and emotionally. Respect while rerouting accountability and discipline only happens when you are confident that you can listen to your student athletes need in an open space. This means without judgement and negative energy.

Retreat from fear and place each moment as a growing opportunity for your faith. Peel your mark of fear, lean forward, and you may just see a reflection of hope. When your thoughts force you to run, make sure your compass leads you towards your faith. Never let your feelings slow you down, for the only thing slowing you down is fear.
Refresh by taking a moment to reflect. Today's calm meets its inner peace at the whisper of your smile. May the calm touch the space towards the clarity unto which you walk today. Love is the bridge, but faith keeps it stable.
Take time today to listen to your calling. You are more than a gift; you are a purpose. Each day you hold potential to make a positive change in the world around you. Don't ask for the gift if you are not willing to use it. Love, lift, and refresh your purpose knowing that complaining gives success to failure.
Renew your day by finding balance. Take control of your life and lose yourself in faith. Be calm in your words to others. Fear not that you are being attacked, but that you are being prepared for something greater. Your habits today will renew the possibilities towards fulfilling your dreams tomorrow. Be patient in what you say, faithful in what you think, and positive in what you do. You are the gift that renews hope.
