I remember when I was 9 years old, playing on the Yankees in-town Little League team.
It was the playoffs and the Coach pulled me aside and said I wasn’t going to be able to play.
It turned out, that there was some issue with my birth certificate.
My parents had doctored it….
Now, I know what you are thinking….cheaters! Trying to gain an edge and make sure I was the best.
Well, they were trying to make me my best.
Yet, they doctored it to show I was a year older, not a year younger. Yes, read that again.
My parents wanted me playing against bigger and better competition. Perhaps that is where my inner drive started. I have always sought out a challenge, tried to take on the impossibly hard.
And my parents couldn’t have given me a better gift.
Think about how nowadays, everyone gets a trophy. This was in the days before all that garbage started, before teaching kids about competition became a thing of the past.
Obviously, this courageous act by my parents had a BIG impact on me, because I remember it clear as day, 30 years later.
We need to challenge those we are trying to lead and teach, rather than trying to make it as easy as possible for them.
