Model Others to Build Success:
Modeling performance can help you in many areas of your life. Modeling can make learning easier. Look to model people you respect. For example, you admire how a team mate skates, or how a NHL player scores goals or plays defense. Identify, what they do best and learn from them. Watching other great performers, is fastest way to learn. You will be surprised how many coaches and athletes are willing to help you succeed. The key is to make contact and ask for advise.
  • Emulate people with exceptional skills
  • Watch people you admire
