Great effort springs naturally from a great attitude.
Commitment to the team - there is no such thing as in-between, you are either in our out.
Being ready isn't enough; you have to be prepared for a promotion or any other significant change.
Management must speak with one voice. When it doesn't management itself becomes a peripheral opponent to the team's mission.
To have long term success as a coach or in any position of leadership, you have to be obsessed in some way.
When you're playing against a stacked deck, compete even harder. Show the world how much you'll fight for the winner's circle. If you do, someday the cellophane will crackle off a fresh pack, one that belongs to you, and the cards will be stacked in your favor.
There can only be one state of mind as you approach any profound test; total concentration, a spirit of togetherness, and strength.
A particular shot or way of moving the ball can be a player's personal signature, but efficiency of performance is what wins the game for the team.
If you have a positive attitude and constantly strive to give your best effort, eventually you will overcome your immediate problems and find you are ready for greater challenges.
