Shocking Girls Basketball Secret

Do you want to know one of the most shocking secrets in girls basketball?

The advantage I had before I even played in my first basketball game.

The advantage that I had against many coaches I coached against.

Are you ready for it?

Make sure you get your pen and paper ready.

Make sure you are wide awake for this one.

Here we go. Here it is.

BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND!

That's it.

BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND!

The book 7 Habits of Highly Effective People says to begin with the end in mind means to start with a clear understanding of your destination. To know where you are going so that you better understand where you are now and so that the steps you take are always in the right direction. To begin with the image or picture of the end.

You have to know where you are going in order to get there. If you do not know where you are going in girls basketball, you may end up anywhere. That is not a very comfortable position to be in. You could end up being average, mediocre, or even worse below average.

I would love to tell you the story of how my first coach refused to let me even try out for the team because he looked at me and felt I could not play basketball. But what he did not know is that I had already made up in my mind and saw in my mind that I would be a basketball player. I had the secret of girls basketball and did not even know it.
