Mindset Quotes:

“I believe ability can get you to the top,” says coach John Wooden, “but it takes character to keep you there.… It’s so easy to … begin thinking you can just ‘turn it on’ automatically, without proper preparation. It takes real character to keep working as hard or even harder once you’re there. When you read about an athlete or team that wins over and over and over, remind yourself, ‘More than ability, they have character.’ ”

“I don’t mind losing as long as I see improvement or I feel I’ve done as well as I possibly could…no matter what your ability is, effort is what ignites that ability and turns it into accomplishment.”
