Power Thoughts:

When you make a mistake, there are only three things you should ever do about it:
1. Admit it. 2. Learn from it, and 3. Don't repeat it.”  Paul "Bear" Bryant (Great Football Coach)

Jeremiah 24:6
I will set my eyes on them for good, and I will bring them back to this land. I will build them up, and not tear them down; I will plant them, and not uproot them.

"I believe that my work is as much about words as basketball.  Choosing the right words to say to players is no less important than picking the starting line-up or court strategies.”
-Mike Krzyzewski

Sports Psychology Tips:

Create Vision for Your Players:

Great leaders, teachers, coaches and counselors very often, see potential in other people that they can’t see in themselves. It our job as a coach to provide vision into them. Players often need to  be told what they can become. Players need to be told what is possible. Players want direction for their life. Your words have the power to lift players up, push them in the right direction and create a vision for their future.

  • Choose to plant positive seeds
  • Choose to encourage someone today
  • Choose to speak hope
  • Choose to speak life into dreams
  • Choose to speak a vision of a great life
  • Choose to speak about potential; Not problems
