    BASKETBALL TEACHING
    Many athletes seem to have picked up a sense, as they have moved up the athletic ladder, that frowning and showing anguish indicates they are tough competitors who hate to lose.

    But I don’t think their frowns and displays of anguish indicate anything more than exactly that…

    Do you want to show off what a tough competitor you are?

    Good!

    Then beat people. Overcome adversity. Smash through obstacles. Be encouraging when everyone around you has lost hope. Summon energy when you have a right to be exhausted.

    Need any more? Replace your frowns with more constructive actions. Try fist exchanges. They work wonders. They make even the bad times part of the joy of sports.

    ― Dick DeVenzio
    Founder of PGC Basketball


    LIFE LESSON
    Whenever you act consistently with who you consider an excellent person to be, your self-image improves and your self-esteem increases.

    You like and respect yourself more.
    You feel happy about yourself and others.
    The more you like yourself, the more you like others, and the more they like you in return.

    By acting with character and in harmony with your highest values, you put your entire life (internally and externally) into an upward spiral. In every area of your life, things will get better and better for you.

    – Brian Tracy
