16 Steps to Becoming a Winner

Here’s an incentive I have used with teams and coaches for practices, games and life:

  • Never underestimate your opponent.
  • Remember that a great effort is usually the result of a great attitude.
  • Dedicate yourself to a mighty purpose.
  • Win with humility, lose with grace.
  • Ignore those who discourage you.
  • Work to improve your moral and spiritual strengths as well as your physical ones.
  • Remember that how you conduct yourself off the ‘field’ is just as important as how you conduct yourself on the field.
  • Talent is God-given — be humble. Fame is man-given — be thankful.  Conceit is self-given — be careful.
  • Don’t ask to be deprived of tension and discipline — these are the  tools that shape success.
  • Do what has to be done, when it has to be done and as well as it can be done.
  • Remember that when you are not working to improve, your competition is.
  • Always give your best.
  • Practice like a champion.
  • Play like a champion.
  • Live like a champion.
