Power Thoughts:

"Some people say that I have an attitude- Maybe I do. But I think that you have to. You have to believe in yourself when no one else does- that makes you a winner right there."
-Venus Williams 

"It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you're a winner, when you're number one. What you got to have is faith and discipline when you're not a winner."
-Vince Lombardi 

"I firmly believe that any man's finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle - victorious."
-Vince Lombardi 

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)

Sports Psychology Tips:

All Winners Suffer Setbacks:

Every winner has lost and every losers can win. Your past does not determine your future.  How you handle your loss, determines if you will win again.  

  • Winners are willing to risk losing
  • Winners get knocked down, pick themselves up,  dust themselves off and ride again
  • Winners take responsibility for the loss and learn from it
  • Winners believe in themselves after a loss, even when others do not
  • Winners never leave the sight of loss without setting a new goal
  • Winners plan a comeback
