Hey Team..

Do you feel like you are reaching for your potential each day?

I hope so... but if not, why not?

Have you truly created and carried out your own true, personal identity?

I hope so.. but if not, why not?

Do you let your past dictate your future?

I hope NOT!.. but if so, why?

So many people today are comparing their lives to that of others...

AKA Losing your own identity...

Every time you are looking in the past, looking at others, and going against yourself, you are losing yourself.

And if you want to build a strong foundation of life long confidence, the only way you can do so if by staying true to yourself.

Some people may say you are arrogant, stubborn, or even selfish.. and if somebody tells you that... listen...

But just because somebody says that doesn't mean it is true...

As long as you do the best you can do each and every day... you help, motivate, inspire, and serve others each day... you know deep in your heart who your really are...

Nobody can take that away from you.

That gives you strength.

As we look at the lessons taught by one of the greatest Coaches of our era, John Wooden, we learn that being ourselves is critical to personal and team success...

You see, the development of your personal character each day, doing all the little things, will lead to victory ultimately...

It is the process and the daily execution of character development that strengthens your soul.

Many of those who "Break" mentally do so because they are living a life that is not their own...

They are faking it.

That leads to weakness.

Stay within yourself, run your own race, and work hard to develop your character. Your reputation will take care of itself...

This will give you tremendous peace of mind.. which in turn will make you successful...

Coaches Tip: Take some time today and write down where you are being in-authentic to yourself and where you are faking it and not putting true effort into.

Exercises like this will help you to truly take your personal security and character to the next level...
