Tug of War

Discover Your Potential

We all have the potential to perform better. We just have to know and learn how to use all that we have.

The night before my son had a tug of war competition between his class and the other kindergarten classes, I told him, “During tug of war, your power should come from your leg and butt muscles. Don’t only use your arms to pull. Instead, get low and dig your feet in.”

As you can see, he took my advice and put forth a maximum effort. Did he have an advantage because his father is a physical therapist? Possibly. Although I wasn’t there to pull the rope, perhaps I enabled his approach in order to tap into his full potential.

I didn’t coach the other kids and it didn’t seem to matter as his class won the competition. I like to think that the little guy pictured above, perfect form and all, made the difference.
