Prepare to Win

This is one of my favorite quotes, from one of the all-time most winning coaches in College basketball, Bobby Knight:

“Most people have the will to win, few have the will to prepare to win.”

Get out a note card and a Sharpie and write that quote down and tack it near your phone or on your computer. This is one of the primary keys to success.

If you don’t do the hard work. If you don’t devote the preparation time to build the skills of success, then you are merely a Con-Artist and confidence tricks can not sustained. Proof Tiger Woods still hits 400 golf balls a day in his training routine. That is sustainable skill building.

The lesson here–Do the Preparation!
