93% of all communication is non-verbal so the majority of what you’re communicating to other people is not coming out of your mouth but from your body language. So start to have an awareness of what you’re communicating.
When your coach sees you slouching or tossing the basketball between your fingers or your eyes start to wander, he has no choice but to interpret your body language as that you don’t care or you’re sloppy or you’re not a serious player. Your coach starts believe that he can’t count on you and you’re not really understanding the coaching because you don’t want to get better. This is the interpretation that coaches and teammates make just by the way you are holding yourself.
Start to understand that you are constantly communicating to others without even opening your mouth and have awareness of what your body language is communicating at any given moment. Now set a goal to see if you can be the best communicator on the court, both verbally and non-verbally.

This is a correspondence between PGC owner Dena Evans and a long-time PGC grad. I was so moved by Dena’s response to this player, which the player’s father shared with me, I decided to ask Dena, and this athlete, for permission to share this correspondence publicly. If you know the heart-ache and disappointment of not reaching your team or individual goals, this is a must-read.
