Suck it up
Grow a set.
Become a warrior
This might be all well and good on the football field.
I did nothing for me though.
I wanted to be inspired.
A coach that yelled and swore only ever got you so far through fear.
And it turned me off rather than switched me on.
I worked out that I played best when I took some time to go within. Even while the rest of the team was getting louder and more fired up.
My best came when I went into my head.
Connected to my inspiration
A coach one day just handed me a newspaper article and said read.
The story there gave me the impetus and the coaches message all in one. It fired my up and had my ready and willing.
The best can coach a group and still see the individual.
In my eyes you are a man.
You can’t be more of one.
The skin sack over skeleton shows me that.
It’s what you willing to do on the inside that counts.
There’s no have tos or dress codes when you’re being supported by me.
I’m not going to go all commando on you.
The hardest decision you might make is whether you wear thongs or ugg boots.
You see I understand there is no one size fits all formula.
I see you.
I work with what drives you.
I get your circumstances
And how you view the world.
There is always choice.
You choose to grow.
I’m there to support you.
