Your Game Plan for 2017 | Plan

As a coach I would never think of going into an athletic contest without a game plan.  A game plan is essential if I want to put my team in the best possible position to win.

A game plan gives a course of action to take, and is the basis for the coach to make decisions.  A good coach would never think of just showing up for a game unprepared, without a plan.

Just as a coach has a game plan to help his team win, you need to have a game plan to win big in 2017.

A Winning Mindset | Winning

Vince Lombardi said, “Winning is not a sometime thing, it’s an all time thing.  You don’t win once in a while, you don’t do things right once in a while, you do them right all the time.  Winning is a habit.  Unfortunately, so is losing.”

The difference between the winners and the losers are the habits they develop.  Winners not only do the right things, they do things right.

Are you growing?

In a world that is constantly changing, having a growth mindset is essential to success.  If you are not growing, then you are dying – there is no staying the same.

Don’t be your own worst enemy!

The other day a friend reminded me of an old saying that goes, “Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.”

Most of us have seen this in sports, where a less talented team outworks and outplays an athletically more talented team.  Hard work has beaten talent many times, when talent just didn’t work very hard.

Hard work is more important than talent!

Wishbone or backbone? | courage

Are you someone who has a wishbone instead of a backbone?

Go for the Gold!

Watching the Olympic games over the past couple of weeks, I’m reminded that years of discipline, sacrifice, and determination come down to one moment.  All the pain that an athlete endures in training and preparing comes down to that one moment in the spotlight.

The level of preparation is insane.  Every hour of sleep is calculated, every ounce of food is measured, every pound in the weight room is carefully weighed out to bring about the best results possible.

The Change You Really Want

How many times have you identified something in your life you want to change, but failed to actually make that change?

Maybe you’ve wanted to change the time you wake up each day, or the time you go to bed, or you’ve wanted to change your spending habits, or eating habits.   Maybe you’ve wanted to start a workout program.

The inability to change a habit can be frustrating and defeating.

“Whether you think you can, or you can’t, you’re right.”

Your thinking determines everything about the quality of your life. The way you think about yourself, and what you are capable of, will become your reality.

It was Henry Ford who said, “Whether you think you can or your can’t, you’re right.”
