Many basketball players recognize the situation they are facing. But a good player knows the next man; that is, they know not only what the situation is but what it is about to become as a result of the next man.
You should always assume the arrival of a next man and know whether it is going to be your teammate or opponent. Will the next man make the situation you face easier or harder?
“Challenges. We must embrace challenges rather than avoid them.
Obstacles. We must persist through obstacles rather than give up.
Effort. We must see effort as a path to mastery rather than as a fruitless endeavor.
Criticism. We must learn from criticism rather than ignoring useful feedback.
Success of others. We must be inspired by the success of others rather than feeling threatened.”
– Donald Miller
“Here’s the bottom line: You already know all that you need to succeed. You don’t need to learn anything more. If all we needed was more information, everyone with an Internet connection would live in a mansion, have abs of steel, and be blissfully happy.
New or more information is not what you need—a new plan of action is. It’s time to create new behaviors and habits that are oriented away from sabotage and toward success. It’s that simple.”
– Darren Hardy
