How to Fast Track Girls Basketball Success

Everybody wants to be successful at what they do. In girls basketball, you always want to be the winner. You always want to be the leading scorer. You always want people to talk about you and your game. You would want to be the player with the sweetest jump shot. Well how do you get to that point?

Know where you want to go.

The book 7 Habits of Highly Effective People says to know where you are going so that you better understand where you are now and so that the steps you take are always in the right direction. If you do not know where you want to be in girls basketball, you may end up anywhere. Determine what area of basketball you would like to be successful in. It could be in ball handling, shooting, defense, free three shooting, 3 point shooting, etc. Or you may want to be successful in any combination of things. This is something you have to decide.

Believe you will get there.

John C. Maxwell States in his book, Thinking for a Change, "The greatest detriment to many people's success tomorrow is their thinking today. If their thinking is limited, so is their potential. But if people can keep growing in their thinking, they will constantly out grow what they're doing. And their potential will always be off the charts." Now the question is do you believe you can achieve what you want. Do you think you are capable of being successful?

Do something about it.

Just knowing where you want to go and believing that you will be successful will not get you there alone. You have to put something into action. You have to go out and work on your skills. Get in a gym by yourself or with a trainer. It doesn't necessarily have to be a gym. I worked out in the driveway. I bought my own basketball goal as an 8th grader and shot for hours by myself. Attend basketball camps. Read basketball books. Look at basketball DVDs or VHS tapes. You have to put in the work in order to reap the rewards of success.
