One of the Greatest Gifts You Can Give is Your Time

This Mental Monday, Ben Askren discusses the topic of volunteering and giving back to the community and others. This was inspired by a post on Facebook by legendary Coach, Competitor, and National Wrestling Hall of Famer, Bobby Douglas. This talk was also inspired by a statistic read by Askren that his generation volunteers less than any other. Douglas posted he wanted to leave something behind. Askren talks about how every good coach leaves something behind with every athlete they coach. He speaks to how much coaches have meant to him and helped him throughout his life. Askren wears many hats and has many “jobs” but he says his favorite and most rewarding is coaching kids. Coaching is one of the best ways to give back. Overall, Askren’s message is to give back early and often. You’ll be surprised how good it feels to do something for someone else.
