How about this for some Monday Motivation?
As Henry Ford puts it, “Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right.” We understand the importance of getting one’s mind right for any task or challenge, and urge to think positively when encountering difficulties.
In our worlds, there’s a power of vision that enables one to focus. What you focus on, you draw to yourself. That also goes into our thought process of concentrating on only the things you can control and turning everything into a positive.
Look at this week ahead and decide what you can accomplish. Then, go out and get it done.
We have a wonderful opportunity ahead of ourselves, but we can only … Read More
It’s one of Coach Carroll’s greater mantras. If you attack every task on every day with the mentality to “do it better than it has ever been done before,” you are striving for success.
It’s a deliberate and purposeful way to maximize your potential–in anything you pursue. Whether it’s in your professional career or recreational basketball game, we all strive to maximize our potential.
If you want to be uncommon with your actions and skills, you need to know that everything counts to perform to the best of your ability.
What are you waiting for? Let’s go attack this day.
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.
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

A theme we have been using at WinForever this week is to start something new. We know it’s never too late to go after a dream, or even set and reach a new goal.
The best way for us to progress through life as competitors is to always have new goals to stretch towards.
I stumbled upon this incredible quote by Les Brown and felt compelled to create a cool image. I hope it inspires you to dig deep and think about a new project, goal or dream.
It’s time to act now–that’s how we compete to be our best selves.
We recently came across an enticing video of a TED Talk and thought how much it relates to maximizing one’s life and reaping the rewards that come with it.
Tali Sharot is a cognitive neuroscientist who studies why our brains are biased toward optimism. In her talk, Sharot shares new research that suggests our brains are wired to look on the bright side–and how that can be both dangerous and beneficial.
Are we born to be optimistic, rather than realistic? Take a look.
Her most profound quote from the video: “Whatever happens, whether you succeed or you fail, people with high expectations always feel better, because how we feel — when we get dumped or we win employee of the … Read More
At a recent Nike WinForever Workshop in Los Angeles last year, Dr. Michael Gervais tapped into his expertise, saying that focusing is a decision.
Gervais told us that the challenge is to guide someone’s mind to focus on the right thing in the right way at the right time. Since focusing is a decision, ”the skill is refocusing,” Gervais told the active audience in Hollywood. “It’s really challenging to get our minds to become still, but refocusing is the skill.”
The mind always wanders as there are always distractions, If you don’t like how it’s going, then the next step is to have the awareness that you’re off. You can then refocus on something you do like. That is what’s … Read More
