We must teach them how to be competitive with humility and grace. We must teach them it’s ok to make mistakes, because that is how we grow. We must teach them to be confident, respectful, understanding, and to be open to new ideas. We must teach them to chase their dreams but understand there is joy and hard work within that journey. We must teach them; for not us then who?
