First, I want to discuss with you the two most important factors in all sports whether you're in basketball or if you're jumping rope. These 2 factors have nothing to do with your size, your talent, or your ability but they have everything to do with how you play the game. And as a matter of fact, it's the only two things we can control. The first factor that I'll discuss is your attitude. You may have heard that "attitude is everything", well trust me it is.
People hate being around others with a negative or pessimistic attitude. If that describes yourself, then stop right now and figure out where your bad attitude stems from and work to correct it. The next factor is your effort. If you plan to do anything, you must do it one-way and one-way only: That's ALL OUT! Now, great basketball players all start out in the same way: with a plan.
So, tell me where is it you want to go? What are your dreams? Desires? Now, let me ask you have you made any plans to get to where you want to go? There was a quote that I heard that says, "If you fail to plan, then you plan to fail" Do you have your plans in front of you tracking your results? So, with that said, I want to give you some goal setting tips for you to improve on your game. Goal setting is the key to getting what you want out of life. Remember that Life just doesn't happen, you have to make it happen. And you must be relentless in your pursuit of your goals.
So here are my top 10 lists of goal setting tips: 1. Define exactly what you want (the clearer the better) 2. Set priorities with deadlines 3.
Develop a love for your work 4. Always do more than someone ask you 5. Respect all people 6. Write notes and track your progress 7. Develop love for learning 8.
Picture success (what does it look like, feel like, can you taste it?) 9. Never say quit 10. Live your life with no regrets. (Go ALL OUT!!!) So, I'm going to leave you with something that has extremely beneficial in my basketball days as well as my days as business owner. Eliminate these three words out of your vocabulary: Try, But, Can't Eliminate these words and start today setting your own goals and you'll see magical things happen to your game as well as to your life! .
