1ST HALF: LESSONS FROM MENTORS

Often you don’t realize you had mentors until later in life

I now have trusted advisors

Mentors invest in your life

Balance the boundaries – Push but not break

“We look reality in the eye and we do not flinch”

Don’t get caught up in success, when we become successful we think we got there on our own – it does not happen that way

If they focus you THANK THEM

If you do not value time you are wasting time and you never get it back

HALFTIME – THE KEY POINTS TO HELP YOU ON YOUR JOURNEY

BOOK: The Alchemist –  Paulo Coelho

 BOOK:  Left to Tell –  Immaculee Ilibagiza 

QUOTE: Change your thoughts change your life – W. Dyer

QUOTE: A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step

QUOTE:  Philippians 4:13 –  I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

DAILY HABIT:  Make my bed every morning

MEASURING STICK: What am I doing to help more people

2nd HALF: OVERCOMING FAILURE

We have lost the idea of embracing failure – we don’t want failure  – It is not allowed…  This a problem

I took a job because of the money but my heart was not in it.

You need to have passion for what you are doing

I let success get to my head – My ego got too big

EGO – Edging God Out

The answer is simple but not easy

Building champions… not winning championships

IN THE LOCKER ROOM – LEGACY QUESTIONS 

AH HA MOMENT: When I decided no longer continue to play college basketball coach. It thrust me into an “Identity Crisis.”  I now see this as an issue for many athletes.
