    What motivates you?

    My best friend Anne Marie kicks my bum in tennis and probably anyone else’s. When we were playing at university we were great partners. We spent our time between matches actually doing cartwheels on the court. We were paired up with a couple of Chinese guys who were so serious about tennis. One day our coach pulls us aside and assigns us new partners. ‘Not the Chinese, Not the Chinese’ we chanted – they’d kill us at tennis. Sure enough, Anne Marie and I found fantastic new partners.

    I’m building bridges here.

    Stay with me folks. There IS a reason I’m telling you this.

    The reason is this. When I am in the class room in front of my students I ask them ‘What motivates you most?’ Is it someone who comes over, puts your hand on your shoulder, smiles, and says good job, or is the person who gets behind you and yells ‘DO IT!’?

    When I was on swim team in high school, my sister was my best motivator. She’d follow me back and forth across the lanes and scream ‘Go Julie!’ Her coaching strategy was swim toward the chocolate cake and away from the shark.

    Just pretend

    Be a kid and pretend you are the best. Walk across the room at this moment as if you have a cape on your back, I don’t care if anyone’s watching – all the better. Our mind will literally follow suit.

    When Anne Marie and I were back playing singles tennis, she’d say ‘Julie – You’re going down’ with such grint, I had no other choice then to let her win. Ha ha ha, Anne Marie, who’s getting the last laugh now?

    Point is, get out there, do your best. That’s all we can ask, isn’t it?

    Have a nice day and thank you for visiting.
