Patti Dranz is a 4 time State of Florida High School Diving Champion, a feat not accomplished in 51 years!  She was at Westminster Academy in Ft. Lauderdale and now swims for the South Carolina Gamecocks.

She was asked what are 10 things she learned in this championship process:

*God directs where He wants us to be.  We just  have to be there for the ride.

*Be willing and open to try new ideas even if initially it's not what you think you want to do.

 God knows best.  Believe it.

*It was an uphill journey.  One that required much patience.

*Persistence.  Anything worth having is definitely worth working for.

*Attitude.  Attitude is a major part of everything.

*Don't let failure be final.  Nobody likes failing at anything.  Get back up and do it again.  Own it.

*Diving is as much a mental battle as it is a physical one.  Skill can only take you so far.

*Friends and encouragers definitely help along the way.

*Humility is key.

*Give credit where credit is due.  All talents and abilities are gifts from God and need to be used all for His glory.

Wow!  These are excellent points that apply not only to diving but all areas of life!

Live Passionately!
