This week’s Toughness Training is dealing with resiliency in sports. Resilience is “the ability of a substance or object to spring back into shape; elasticity or the capacity to recover from difficulties; toughness.” We all deal with adversity, dissatisfaction, and disappointment at one time or another. Everyone needs to learn how to “bounce back” from it so they can experience success and find happiness in what they do.
Here’s a great article about resilience and much of our homework is based upon it. http://www.nbccamps.com/tips/basketball/seven-ways-to-deal-with-disappointment-in-sports
Parents, please help your child understand how to “bounce back” by being a role model in this manner for them. I love the story at the end of the above article about the butterfly. Let’s be sure our gymnasts turn into amazing butterflies!
