Competing with grace and integrity. That is a very important subject these days.

There's lots of people that have comments on it. But we believe that PCA is that you always try to get that done. Opportunities are often gained or lost, because of how you present yourself whether or not somebody wants to even be around you. And so be thoughtful about that. Your personal brand is something that can be easily torn down and is super hard to build up. And so how you react to a loss or a bad call, or your kid's loss, or a bad call, is all part of your personal brand.

So think about that, you know, how do I want to reflect on this am I going to be okay with my behavior, when I reflect on it in the car. Is my kid going to get an opportunity at the school he or she wants to go to based on their reactions to bad calls or how they interact with their teammates or people that are around them? And so again, your personal brand is a massively important way of what you leave behind, your legacy. It's important for all of us to be intentional with that. And again, you can't be thoughtful and intentional without actually preparing yourself for it.

So before you go to the match, before your kid goes to the match, make sure your mind is right. And so you know that you're ready to overcome obstacles and you're ready to leave behind what you actually want to be proud of.
