The second Training Minds Podcast published this morning, and you’re going to love its message: The Biggest Character Challenges of Competition.
This is really good stuff. My colleague Travis Herche walks through four challenges that he learned over the years in his championship-level competition. You’ll have to listen to it yourself, but here’s a quick summary:
- Be Responsible. Take ownership of your failures. You learn from the rounds you lose, not the ones you win.
- Be Competitive. You need to set a goal that represents your potential. Feel the satisfaction of achieving the goal.
- Be Gracious. Be grateful with every opportunity you get, in your losses and wins, even if it is not what you think is optimal.
- Be Humble. See yourself the way God sees you. This isn’t as a victim, but as someone blessed to compete in speech and debate.
I hope you tune in and listen to Training Minds Ministry’s second podcast. You will be moved and encouraged about this fine community of speakers and debaters that Travis and I both serve.
