There's a fine line b/w winning & losing. The edge goes to the team that plays w/ great energy, not what the game plan is.
Hey players, either your coach wants you to shoot when you're open or your opponent's coach does... which is it?
“Persistence makes the impossible possible, the possible likely, and the likely definite.”
Successful teams have this mantra as part of their everyday existence: "it can never be about me". Teams win thru joint efforts.
@coachdeforest A successful coach needs a patient wife, loyal dog, and great point guard- and not necessarily in that order.--
The goal is not to be better than anyone else but rather be better than you were yesterday!
When you build the right culture, you don’t have to kick people off the bus. They will get off themselves because they don’t fit in
Sometimes the team/school w all the advantages..all the hero's..doesn't win ..why?? Cuz they run into a team w more heart/ toughness
"Good teams become great ones when the members trust each other enough to surrender the Me for the We." -
Luck & opportunity do play a part in most success. But there is a step that has already been taken when those 2 things show up--preparation!
Are you committed? Committed people see hard work as an important investment rather than a dreaded sacrifice.
"To be successful you don't have to do extraordinary things. Just do ordinary things extraordinarily well."
Bob Knight says "dumb loses more games than smart wins." Florida making some really dumb plays.
Play for your team & make your teammates better and it's amazing what will happen for you. The little things don't go unnoticed by coaches.
A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions and the compassion to listen to the needs of others.
A leader doesn't set out to be a leader, but becomes one by the quality of his/her actions and the integrity of his/her intent.
