This last weekend, Finn’s baseball team had a game.
One of the coaches was out of town and asked if one of the other dads could help coach the team. I thought it would be fun and volunteered.
Finn and Sarah had gotten there earlier. When I arrived, Finn kept telling all of his teammates, “This is my dad, and he is the coach.” I began to laugh and told him, “I’m just helping out today.” Finn responded, “Yeah, but you’re the coach today.”
I was never good at baseball. I played as a kid because everyone in our neighborhood played baseball.
Being at Finn’s game this weekend, reminded me of this coach that coached in our neighborhood. He was never my coach but whenever we played his team, he would praise all the kids. It didn’t matter if they were on his team or if they were the opposing team. I loved playing his team.
You would be up to hit, and you would make a double. The second you made contact on the ball he would scream, “Great hit tiger.”
As you were running around the bases he would yell, “Great hustle sport.”
He was constantly praising every player on the field.
His teams always placed top. He could get a mediocre player and make them really good, just by building their self-esteem.
Self-esteem is really important.
Many people will feel a lack of confidence, when their dental health is not in a healthy state.
At times, people will avoid smiling, because they feel their teeth aren’t looking as white or straight as they think it should.
Or they’re embarrassed to talk because they feel that their breath gives off a certain odor.
Or that their fillings are beginning to look stained.
All these things will affect your self-esteem and cause you to become less confident.
