We don’t have mirrors in the Performance Center yet, at least not by the rig where we do our complex exercises. I’ve been surprised that their absence has had little effect on our learning new exercises.
So what if, instead of mirrors, we posted a single word above each platform, along with a portrait of a student-athlete who best embodies that word. “Strength”, “Courage”, and “Successful”, could each have a corresponding athlete.
Regardless of whether it’s a mirror, a portrait, or nothing, who you’re becoming is more important than who you are right now. Choose carefully.
