#61 – Finding Success in Real Life

It's time to take our youth sports character successes home! Moms and Dads are invited to come off the bench with me for this episode!Connect with me at or on Facebook at Wins Happen in Real Life!It's important to win. We should never be satisfied with losing. The drive to win pushes us. Being on a winning team helps us gel and feel good about ourselves (or maybe we win because we gel and feel good about ourselves - but that's a different discussion). But there is more to life than winning soccer games or topping the standings chart. Carrying a force of character we developed in the crucible of youth sports is maybe more important than winning a game against the city orange or red team. Real wins for a youth sports program happen when kids absorb the lessons that youth sports are meant to teach. When a kid grows into an adult that strives to build a team and win at the game of life, youth coaches and parents can smile. We've achieved our goal. That's a win!Resources“7 Qualities Of A Good Employee and Candidate (According to Research).” Jibe,, Ken. “15 Traits Of The Ideal Employee.” Forbes, Forbes Magazine, 26 Feb. 2016,“20 Top Qualities That Determine a Great Employee.” Cleverism, 20 Feb. 2018,, Joe. “Qualities of a Good Employee: The Top 50 Signs To Look For.” Corporate Essentials, 16 Aug. 2018,“14 Admirable Attributes of a Great Employee.” The 6Q Blog, 7 Dec. 2018,, Neil. “Twelve Characteristics of a Great Employee.” Strategies, 8 July 2013, Limited. “7 Traits of Great Employees That Prospective Employers Look for - SEEK Career Advice.” Seek Career Advice AU, SEEK Limited, 26 Oct. 2018,, Erin. “The Top 6 Qualities of a Good Employee.” Benefits Bridge, 27 July 2018,“How to Be a Great Employee: Top 25 Traits and Characteristics.” WiseStep, 11 June 2018,, Melinda, and Melinda EmersonMelinda F.
