iPhone : To me winning will always be the most important thing, but if you can answer yes to all the “character” questions then you put your team in a great position to win. This needs to be taught more. Great way to build a teams culture. The earlier in a athletes life, the better! twitter.com/ballispsych/st…

iPhone : Reading this now. Topnotch book. Spot on with great advice and encouragement in crisis. twitter.com/ballispsych/st…

iPhone : Success in life comes when you simply refuse to give up; with dreams so big that obstacles, failure, and losses only act as motivation.

iPhone : Everyone practices.
Everyone warms up.
Everyone lifts weights.
Everyone watches film.

It’s not about ‘what’ you do, it’s about ‘how’ you do it.

Do everything with excellence.

iPhone : Steph Curry went 0-10 from 3 on November 4th, 2016.

In his very next game on November 7th, he set the NBA record for most 3-pointers in a game by hitting 13 of them.

Life is 1% what happens to you and 99% how you react to it.

iPhone : There’s no glory in easy.

Nobody remembers easy stories.

People who fight, persevere, and work to overcome adversity get remembered.

Embrace adversity, your story and your character will be better because of it.

iPhone : A healthy culture doesn't guarantee things won't get difficult, doesn’t guarantee no obstacles. Those are part of the journey. Expect them.

Culture determines how you respond to those obstacles, whether they take you out or you overcome them.

Make your culture an advantage.

iPhone : Mental toughness is about consistency.

Lots of people can have a few good games or go hard for a few workouts. The greats never miss a workout and never give a half-hearted effort.

“Every time” players beat “sometimes” players.

Be an “every time” player.

iPhone : “The championship level guys are just completely uncommon. They don’t care.

They don’t care about the time.
They don’t care about the inconvenience.
They don’t care about the distraction.
They want to win.

Love to compete and love to get better.”
