“The more you work towards a goal, the harder it is to give up”

Missy Fischer—Hi guys! I hope everyone is staying warm in this atrocious cold weather we’ve been having lately. I know that it has been a steady 0 degree Fahrenheit this week in Brockport. I thought I’d write about a piece of advice one of my favorite professors told me last year. First off I’ll start off by saying, I am a coaching minor, so last year I took a lot of classes for that minor, and two of the classes I took, I took with Coach Donald Murray. For those of you that don’t know, he is the Head Coach of the wrestling team here at Brockport. He’s a really great and smart man and is truly one of my favorite professors on campus. Last year in his Scientific Foundations of Coaching class, a piece of advice he shared with us was that “The more you work towards a goal, the harder it is to give up.” To some that quote may not resonate with you as much as it affected me, but to me that piece of advice from Coach Murray has motivated me more than he will ever know. When I’m down or when I feel like giving up, I think about how hard I’ve worked to get where I am, and I think about what Coach Murray said, and realize that there is no way I would give up now. Especially considering all the sacrifices and work I’ve put in to get where I am.
