I have the opportunity to impact lives directly. not only do I HAVE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF TEACHING AND COACHING THEM TO BE GOOD, PRODUCTIVE CITIZENS. ALSO TO PREPARE THEM TO MAKE APPROPRIATE CHOICES WHEN THE TOUGH CHALLENGES OF LIFE CONFRONTED THEM.

When coupled with physical training, mental training can help put you in the best position to perform to your potential.

You need to check out your mental attitude if you’re going to keep your brain in tune. Remain open to the ideas of the young, even if you don’t seek to emulate their behavior. The key is to as we get older.  “Use it or lose it,” as the saying goes. Recognizing that you are undergoing cognitive changes and then trying to maximize your performance will help preserve your abilities and maintain them to their fullest potential.
