There’s no other decision we need to make other than the fact it’s our choice to dominate this day.
From the time we wake up until we go to sleep at night, all the choices we make contribute to who we are and what we create. Why not give 100% and perform to the best of our abilities?
And, like we preach every day, it’s not about beating the guy next to you. It’s about competing against yourself–being better than you were yesterday.
What do you say? I say it’s time to compete.
Today we unveil the second part of questions from this week’s #AskCoach segment with Coach Carroll. We prompted all you to ask questions regarding coaching and leadership and got an even greater response than anticipated.
Coach Carroll enjoyed all of these and had some great answers. He talked about the central theme of his philosophy–competition–and how it keep players hungry day in and day out. Players need to know they are going into battle every day. To sustain success, which is what it’s all about, Carroll says one needs humility.
Take a look at the following videos for great insight in how to be a a great coach and an even better competitor.

The next time Yogi Roth presents a thorough analysis of the Pistol offense on a Pac-12 Networks broadcast, it may be because of what he discovered exploring the shady streets of Rio de Janeiro.
Don’t see the connection? That’s OK. Although Roth hopes each and every one of you will reach similar levels of enlightenment someday.
Roth is not your typical college football analyst. He’s not your typical human being, for that matter. Inspired by open-minded and globally-centered parents, Roth has spent a hefty chunk of his young life exploring … Read More

@petecarroll Do you have any traditions or things you always do before
What does competition mean to you? ”The modern day way of looking at competition is to say you’re striving against something; that’s a way to look at it that we generally accept,” Coach Pete Carroll explained at last year’s Nike WinForever Workshop. “In our mentality, we’re talking about striving for something: striving for what you want to become, what you can be.”
The Latin root definition explains a lot why we carry this mentality: “to come together, to strive together.”
“When I coach our players, I’m not talking about beating the guy across from them,” Carroll stated. “It’s more about understanding as how we work together, we interact to see how far we can become.”
Of course they–and we–want … Read More
In this series, we provide weekly excerpts from Pete Carroll’s New York Times Best Selling book, Win Forever. Win Forever is about more than winning football games; it’s about maximizing your potential in every aspect of your life. Carroll has taught business leaders facing tough challenges.
“In my early years as a coach I was influenced by Abraham Maslow, Tim Gallwey, and Michael Murphy. Each had a profound impact on my learning and eventual teaching. Yet as the years passed, Gallwey’s “Inner Game” concept proved to be the most influential. The essence of the Inner Game is to acquire and maintain a “quieted mind,” which may then allow an athlete to perform at his or her highest level… Read More

“As long as you give it your all, give it your best and always compete, you’ll always succeed.”
USC alum Matt Anderson attended our Nike WinForever Workshop last March in Dallas, Texas at Cowboys Stadium. He was eager to talk to us after the Workshop, and had some powerful words to share.
Matt is inspired by the WinForever program, and hangs on tight to Coach Pete Carroll’s motto, of Always Competing.
“Something that drives me forward is to never give up” Matt told WinForever in an interview after the Workshop. “Don’t ever let anybody tell you that you can’t do something, or let anybody tell you that you can’t succeed at something you know you want to do.”
Matt understands … Read More
As the Seattle Seahawks close out the regular season this Sunday and battle for a NFC West Division title, we unveil our final ‘True Competitor’ video of 2012.
In this video, WinForever founder and Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll sat down with us and talked about what it truly means to win forever and what we continue to do.
Carroll is often asked what’s better, competing or winning. His answer is simple: “Competing by far, because competing lasts forever,” Carroll exclaims. “The wins and losses come and go, but it’s the effort to continue to strive to be the best you can be.”
Everyone has beliefs, but at WinForever, we’re looking to help people go through the process of self-discovery … Read More
