Whenever you speak to students and ask them about their goals, it’s usually clear that the answer you’ll get is some muted, toned-down version of the real thing. They think by telling you the knock-off version of their crazy, ambitious dreams, they’re taking the pressure off themselves. But what they’re really doing is selling themselves short – giving themselves permission to settle for “good enough” when they have the potential within them to be great.
Dreaming big requires commitment, hard work, an exacting adherence to high standards, and total fearlessness in making good on Nike’s promise that “impossible is nothing.”
So the next time your kid comes to you with what sounds like an impossible dream, try the following to help guide them towards their goals.
As parents, educators, and coaches, we have a responsibility to enable our kids to aspire and help them to be inspired. Here’s hoping these tips help put your child on the path to greatness this academic year!
