Hello Football Families,
Looking back on the last week one word come to mind and that word is Poise. Poise is not possible unless you have prepared correctly. Failing to prepare is preparing to fail. Poise is a natural result of proper preparation and allows you the ability to be you. With that in mind I could not help but think of this quote from Coach Wooden:
“Be concerned with your preparation, not theirs; your execution, not theirs; your effort and desire, not theirs. Don’t worry about them. Let them worry about you. Don’t focus on the score, focus on what you’re doing and give your best.” - John Wooden
This week we are going to focus on being Poised.
Your assignment before our all team meeting is to watch Coach Wooden share on Winning and Success!
After watching the John Wooden Ted Talk answer the following.
1 - What are the 3 rules John Wooden’s expects from his players?
2 - Who wrote the Poem the Road Ahead and the Road Behind?
3 - What does Cervantes say about the “Journey?" What do you think that means?
Week 00 - Good things take time!
Week 01 - Fight
Week 02 - Be comfortable with the uncomfortable
Week 03 - Be Squozen (Squeezed)
Week 04 - Love Does
Week 05 - Handle the Hard Better!
Week 06 - Being Poised
Play as One!
