Today at Gifford C. Cole Middle School in Lancaster, CA. I had the honor of sharing my career path for career day with the students. We talked about what it took to become a professional in any chosen path and the relation sports and pro athletes have to any profession. We spoke about challenges one might face in school and how asking for help to become better is also similar in sports. We talked about starting from scratch climbing up one step at a time, maybe getting a taste of triumph and facing more challenges only to do it again one more rung up and how just like in sport, that is also similar to life and other career paths. I spoke to the students about not seeing "failures" as failures, but rather a way to help them redefine their successes as they push through what might be labeled as a failure in the first place, how in that struggle of failing and seeking opportunities and ways to overcome, one likely will end up stronger,  just in having to keep moving forward and let that momentum increase ultimately taking them to where they'd like to go.

  • _wyjanaaeHeyyy Alysia, Thank you for speaking with us today and telling us about your path and your professional life. I really appreciate it. You made me look at sports different. I wish you would've met this other kid because she wants to run track when she gets older but I'll share everything with her. Also thanks to you I won't see a "failure" as a failure I now see it as something I need to work on in my life. Your Father is AMAZING he's one of my role models and your lucky to have a father like that. Thanks again have a blessed day.

  • stevenchaviramAll your life you are told the things you cannot do.All your life they will say you're not good enough or strong enough or talented enough.They will say you're the wrong height or the wrong weight or the wrong type to play this or be this or achieve this..............THEY WILL TELL YOU NO... A thousand times NO.Until all those NO's become meaning less....All your life they will tell YOU NO......Quiet firmly and very quickly........... 👏🏼AND YOU WILL TELL THEM YES.! @alysiamontano
