Character & Mental Toughness- The Character Climb: Steps to be The Best

Don’t tell me, show me.  That’s modern teaching and coaching in a nutshell.  Young people like a story well told but tend to learn visually.

I speak with my students and players, and also share things to read with  them.  But in my efforts to try to convey my message, I needed to come up with  something they could look at.

So what I envisioned was something that would convey how learning and then applying certain character traits was required in order to take specific steps towards their goals.

So I drew stairs.  Simple enough.

I called it the character climb and I have applied it to a variety of areas.

Below are links to two PDF’s which demonstrate how the interjection of specific character traits can help you advance to the next level.  The first is a general visualization that may be applicable to any endeavor.  The second is an application of this visualization that I give to my team in order to convey how important off-season weight training is to their future success.
