We ran across this article in Bleacher Report, an interview with Seattle Seahawks wideout Golden Tate. Within the article, Michael Schottey listed many quotes that line up to Coach Carroll’s WinForever philosophy.
One of our favorites that Tate insisted on telling Schottey was, “control what you can control.” So many times in our lives—not just sports, but in daily life—do we get caught up in things we can’t control. Something that Coach Carroll has always preached is that you can’t worry about that. It causes anxiety that you don’t deserve. If you control what you can control, then that’s all what you can ask of yourself.
This philosophy, like Schottey explains, is a “better way to … Read More
We always love hearing stories and triumphs of other competitor’s journeys! This week, we received a highly inspirational email from Dan R.
Please take a few minutes to learn how impactful WinForever has been on Dan’s life.
“Here is a little update on my progress… I can’t begin to articulate through words, the sense of joy, hope and renewed direction that I am experiencing as I work through the Win Forever Program. I didn’t expect that this would turn out to be a life changer for me when I downloaded Win Forever onto my Kindle. I liked the book so much that I wanted to reinforce what I was learning, so I bought the Audible.com version and I have been … Read More
Another article has surfaced that focuses on Coach Carroll’s WinForever philosophy. This one, coming from The News Tribune, points at Carroll’s youthful personality, and how it could catch on in the NFL.
“Carroll turned 62 on Sept. 15,” John McGrath writes. “He’s the NFL’s second-oldest coach, behind the Giants’ Tom Coughlin, who is 67 and working on his 40th consecutive year of comporting himself as if he’s 87.”
Carroll may be the second-oldest head coach in the league, but his philosophy of always competing and having the positive attitude is starting to catch on–not only with his players and staff, but the rest of the league, as well.
“It’s a radical way for an NFL coach to behave, but … Read More
We have stumbled across a Fox Sports West article with an interesting subject. Does the name sound familiar?
Yes, this is the Jake Olson from the days when Coach Carroll was at USC. To rehash his story, “a rare form of eye cancer, retinoblastoma, took the vision from Olson’s left eye when he was eight months old. Olson spent his entire youth fighting cancer, but nine times it returned,” Fox Sports West writes. Coach Carroll and his Trojans became involved when Olson was 12, when he needed surgery to remove the vision of his other eye–ultimately causing him to be completely blind.
“On the eve of the surgery that would take away his vision for good, he chose to … Read More
Upstart Business Journal has come out with a very intriguing story, focusing on Coach Carroll. In this article, Upstart Business Journal highlights the fact that Coach has taken a below-average Seattle Seahawks team and turned it into a Super Bowl contender within just a few years.
His leadership style, the journal notes, can be applied to a startup and to leading a company. There is a lot to like, including the three lessons that can be transferred from the football field to the board room. See for yourself, with the following taken from the article:
Pete inspires his team and his program to “do it better” than ever before. He … Read More
As everybody knows, WinForever–including Pete Carroll–has created an approach and foundation based on the great John Wooden. On Throwback Thursday, we give you a true throwback from 2001, when John Wooden took the stage at a TED Conference, speaking about the difference between winning and succeeding.
This is an incredibly important subject, where we really preach competition over “winning,” or becoming victorious. Winning, or success, for John Wooden and WinForever “is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming.” That’s my all-time favorite definition of success.
Did you do the best you can? Then, you won. That’s it.
“Be more concerned with your … Read More
This is Lakeside School’s Cole Stephens.
WinForever Ambassador and Northwest Elite Index’s Scott Enyeart says of Cole Stephens: “He doesn’t look like your typical football player. He looks more like a guy who will be signing your paycheck someday as the CEO of a major corporation. But, in reality, looks can be deceiving, because while Seattle (Wash.) Lakeside School RB/WR/DB Cole Stephens may not “look the part” to some people, the minute he steps on a football field, that all changes.
“You see, the 5-foot-9, 150-pound Stephens wasn’t allowed to play football until the 9th grade. He says his parents thought football was too dangerous, and were worried about his size.”
The following is an essay that Cole wrote … Read More

After Day 3 of the 2013 NFL Draft wrapped up on Saturday evening, Seahawks GM John Schneider and coach Pete Carroll spoke with the media on another great draft class.
When one reporter approached Carroll with a question regarding his philosophy and competition, Coach was happy to answer. “The standards that you set and the expectations that you demand, is what calls players to play at their best,” Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll says. “Regardless of what it looks like, we have the exceptions to play great football, and the standards that it takes to do that are set daily. When you build everything around you with the theme of competition, then that’s what sets the tone.”
Carroll’s organizations, … Read More
