I was teaching today and as you can imagine, I try to stay on the positive side of things. Well, as part of our warmup, I have my students skip across the court. Without fail, they smile while they are doing it. So I said, “It’s hard to do that without smiling. That means, whenever you are in a bad mood, miss a shot or someone does something mean to you, just start skipping.”
The lesson began and one of my students who made a negative comment while walking on to the court, missed a shot.
She said, “I’ll just skip it off.”
And she did and felt better.
And she performed better.
Can you apply this to your life?
