You may not know (…yet) how important one word can be.
“Coach, I can’t do this dang bridge kick over!!!!”
“Well, Sally, you just can’t do it YET… but keep working on that flexibility/strength/timing/drill and you’ll get there!”
The message is this — by adding YET, little Sally hears that her coach believes in her as longs as she keeps trying, works hard and perseveres!
I love this article, “The Power of Yet” by JAG GYM about the word “yet” and shifting to a growth mindset in our often discouraging sport. Amazing stuff!
