Girls Basketball Motivation and Inspiration III

When I played high school basketball and AAU basketball, we did not miss practice. We appreciated being a member of the high school team. And we were extremely grateful for being selected on the AAU team. We were dedicated to improving, to winning, and to the game of basketball. My high school coach motto was "NO EXCUSES". It meant no excuses for being late for practice. No excuses for missing practice. No excuses for not giving your all during practice and in a game. Today, the appreciation and dedication is lacking. But why is it lacking? My answer is they don't know that basketball is a "game of vision".

Now how is basketball a game of vision?

The book 7 Habits of Highly Effective People says to begin with the end in mind. To begin with the end in mind means to start with a clear understanding of your destination. 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.

You have to know where you are going in order to get there. If you do not know where you are going in girls basketball, you may end up anywhere. What are your desires as a player? Is it to start? Is it to lead in statistics? Is it to contributor to your team's winning? Only you know what you want.

I truly believed if you know where you want to go or where you want to be by a certain time frame, you will be dedicated and committed to doing the things you must do to get there.
