TEAM BUILDING

 

 

Team sports are really difficult things.  Sometimes your team wins because of you, sometimes in spite of you, and somtimes it’s like you are not even thtere.  That’s the reality of the team game.  Then at one point in my career something wonderful happened.  I don’t know why or how, but I came to understand what “TEAM” meant.  It meant that although I didn’t get a hit or make a great defensive play, I could impact the team in an incredible and consistent way.  I learned I could impact my team by caring first and foremost  about the teams success and not my own.  I don’t mean like rooting for us like typical fan, fans are fickle.  I mean care, really care about the team…about “US”.  I became less selfish, less lazy, less sensative to negative comments.  When I gave up, me and I became more.  I became a captain, a leader, a better person and I came to understand that life is a team game… and you  know what?… I’ve found most people aren’t team players.  They don’t realizse that life is the only game in town.  Someone should tell them.  It has made all the difference in the worldto me.

Qualitative Differences to Produce Excellence

Technique – Champions are ordinary people who do ordinary things extraordinarily well.

Discipline – Make the practice like games, and the games like practices.

Attitude of a Champion – What are you eager to do?  Not will but eager is the key.

_________________________

Champions don’t look at it as sacrifice.

Champions choose to live as champions.

Champions become champions because they do what champions have to do!

_________________________

Commitments

Commitment is what

Transforms a promise into reality.

It is the words that speak boldly of your intentions.

And the actions which speak louder than the words.

It is making the time when there in none.

Coming through

Time after time after time,

Year after year after year.

Commitment is the stuff character is made of

The power to change

The face of things.

It is the daily triumph

Of integrity over skepticism.

The Most Valuable Thing in the World

I am the most desirable thing in life.  Without me no one can be healthy, happy, or useful… without me, the hidden wealth and vast resources of this earth would have no value. 

Men and women who try to get along without me are characterless, selfish, undeveloped, useless, and unprofitable members of society.

I am behind every fortune, every art and science, every achievement, every trimumph of man. 

Rich men and poor men alike often try to find substitutes for me, hoping thereby to secure a larger measure of happiness, peace and satisfaction, but they are always bitterly disappointed.  Instead of gain, every subsistute for me brings them loss.

As the creator is greater than the creature, so I am greater than wealth, power, fame, learning or any other acquired possession or quality of man, because I am the source from which be acquired them.

I am WORK.

Geese don’t get high-powered press coverage like sea gulls.  They seem dull, ordinary birds which only attract notice twice a year during migration…..

Life the Blue Angels, they fly wing tip to wing tip.  You can hear the beat of their wings whistling through the air in unison…

And that’s the secret of their strength.  Together.  Cooperating as a flock, geese can fly a 70-percent longer range.  The lead goose cuts a swath through the airrestiatance which creates a helping uplift for the two birds behind him.

In turn, their beating makes it easier on the birds behind them.  Much like the drag of a race car sucked in behind the lead car.  Each bird takes his turn at being the leader.  The tired ones fan out to the edges of the V for a breather.  And the rested ones surge towards the point of the V to drive the flock onward….

If a goose becomes too exhaused or ill and has to drop out of the flock, he is never abandoned.  A stronger member of the flock will follow the failing weak one to his resting place and wait until he’s well enough to fly again.

Times such as ours have always bread defeatism.  But there remains, nonetheless, some few among us who believe man has within him the capacity to meet and overcome even the greatest challenges of the time.  If we want to avoid defeat, we must wish to know the trust and be courageous enough to act upon it.  If we get to know the trust and have the courage, we need not despair.

DREAMS

It usually takes a two-year period to determine what you really want to do.

You choose to chase your dream, eat well and enjoy creature comforts.

Four areas of relationships:

  • Marriage / romance
  • Social / political
  • Religious / spiritual
  • Career / professional

You don’t have to zero in on any one and you can have relationship – type experience in any of the four.

Your dream is ongoing and never stops… and you never get there.

Failure only comes when you quit.

Your dream is an unattainable thing you keep striving for.

_________________________

Try

Be not concerned

Nor be surprised

If what you do

Is criticized.

There’s always folks

Who usually can

Find some fault

With every plan.

Mistakes are made

We can’t deny

But only made

By folks who TRY!

_________________________

Humility

Sometime when you’re feeling important,

Sometime when your ego’s in bloom,

Sometime when you take it for granted.

You’re the best qualified in the room.

Sometime when you think that your leaving

Will leave an unfillable hole,

just follow these simple instructions

and see how it humbles your soul;

Take a pitcher and fill it with water,

put your hand in up to its wrist;

now remove it and the hole that remains there

is a sample of how you’ll be missed.

_________________________

Shine your stars,

work your horses

fix your problems,

Get rid of deadwood.

Cancel your subscriptions, I don’t need your issues.

The Addictive Experience

Creates predictable, reliable sensations

Become the primary focus and absorbs attention

Temporarily eradicates pain and other negative sensations.

Provides artificial sense of self-worth, power, control, security, intimacy, accomplishment

 Exacerbates the problems and feelings it is sought to remedy

Worsens fuctioning, creates loss of relationships.

Together Everyone Achieves More

With every flap of its wings, the lead bird in flight of Canada geese is breaking through a wall of air, creating a swirling vortex that provides a “push” for each follower. Some estimates show that gees in a V-formation can fly as much as 70 percent farther than they could fly alone. It’s exhausting work for the lead bird, but Canada gees have an answer to that, too: they take turns. When the leader drops back, another takes its place.

 

It’s good to be flying with you!

    I’ve been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers
    made good content as you did, the web will be a
    lot more useful than ever before.

  2. January 2, 2015 at 6:56 am

    You really make it appear really easy with your presentation but I find this
    matter to be actually something which I believe I’d by no means understand.
    It sort of feels too complicated and extremely vast for
    me. I am looking forward on your subsequent publish,
    I’ll attempt to get the hang of it!
