Former NFL, NDSU Standout Featured in Gift of Insights
Release: December 23, 2010
NASHUA, N.H.--This holiday season, instead of giving a materialistic gift, why not join Insightful PlayerTM team members by giving the "Gift of Insights," to help inspire the youth of America. It's available free and intended to be shared, linked to and printed out and given as gifts to the youth of America and adults too.
Former New England Patriots All-Pro linebacker and North Dakota State All-American Steve Nelson is one of the 30 athletes featured in the book.
Here's an exerpt from the profile (pages 65-67) of New England Patriots and Bison Athletic Hall of Fame member Steve Nelson:
"Instant replay of Steve's guiding principles:
1. Recognize that in football, and often in life, you win or lose as a team. How you are playing individually at any given time matters less than how your team is doing.
2. Children thrive when they have strong role models who are not afraid to guide and direct them.
3. Playing to the best of your abilities always matters more than getting a win; and losing is nothing to be ashamed of if you've put in your best effort.
4. Respect the abilities and expertise of other people, who may have important skills that you do not possess.
5. Help other people - whether they are your teammates, the players you coach, or your own children - to realize their goals.
6. Dream big, but also know how to set small, attainable goals for yourself as steppingstones to a bigger goal.
7. When you have wronged someone, possess the capacity to apologize sincerely and move on from it.
8. Put forth your best attitude in whatever you choose to do.
9. Develop a sense of faith, wonder and gratitude."
A lot of people are not able to buy their loved ones holiday gifts. A Gift of Insights will give them the ability to give 30 inspiring stories of hope.
