Here are some special messages for you from Tim. It’s not easy growing up but it sure can be fun. Tim shares what he’s learned about being successful at home, on the field and in the classroom.



Family is the most important thing in this life. Being a good brother or sister, a good parent, a good spouse or a good relative, these are the relationships that define our lives. Honesty, trust, commitment, mutual support and love are some of the most important things that you can give to your family and you will almost always get back what you give.

If you have brother and sisters, treat them as you would want to be treated and make it your mission to help them be happy, confident and successful. Family defines who we are and the memories of those relationships growing up stay with us forever. The more positive we are in our family relationships, the more positive we are as people and the more likely we are to have a big, happy life.

As you grow older, and this might not always be easy, it’s very important to honor your parents. They’ll have the hard conversations with you that are necessary in growing up. When your parents are having those conversations that you don’t want to hear, they’re sharing their experiences and looking out for your best interests. That’s what good parents do.
