1. There are no short cuts.
Success is about hard work. In every sport, the best players embrace the sweat. Someone way smarter than I am once said, “Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.”
2. Experience counts…a lot.
Rookie errors are costly. Veterans anticipate the unexpected and react with skill.
3. Resist the urge to showboat.
Humility is always classier than self aggrandizement. Individuals make plays, but teams win games.
4. Trust the coach.
5. Stay hungry.
Today is yesterday’s tomorrow.
