US Olympian Sherry Winn, a former NCAA women’s basketball coach who led the University of Charleston’s team to two consecutive Elite Eight finals, had people laughing, collaborating and realizing how they can improve their lives.
At a recent lunch held at Winebrenner Theological Seminary, Winn offered insights on winning at life and maintaining momentum. Some of those included:
- “Most people just do the givens, the simple things. Do the things that nobody else is willing to do.”
- “What you say to yourself becomes your truth. ‘I am’ are your power words.”
- “Develop daily habits. Widen the separation gap by reading every day. Inspire yourself with affirmations. Practice daily gratitude.”
- “Practice visualizing who you want to be. You have to see it in your mind before you become it.”
- “Recover from your past. The best way to get through your past is through the power of forgiveness.”
The leadership event was co-sponsored by the University of Findlay’s Office of Student Activities, Commuter Services and Leadership Development, and the Findlay-Hancock County Chamber of Commerce.
