“Promoting education based athletics in Indiana”

As a big sports fan, there’s nothing more gratifying than watching an athlete that plays with enthusiasm and high energy. No showboating, not trying to show up an opponent or teammate, but just pure enthusiasm.

This weekend when we dropped off our nine-year old grandson and parked our car, he was so excited for his baseball game. He ran to the diamond, he was the first player on the field each inning, and he even ran back to the dugout after striking out in his third at bat. In other words, he was having fun and enjoying the moment.

I know as you get older and games get more competitive and mean more, it’s easy to lose sight of the importance of having fun. However, there’s not a fan or coach anywhere that doesn’t respect and admire an athlete that is enthusiastic. Don’t ever lose sight of how your enthusiasm can have a positive effect in everything you do and say!
