Here’s what can you learn from 12-year olds playing basketball to help you succeed.
On the court, it’s as clear as the fall Dutch blue sky who is going to succeed. How about outside the gym?
Sure, there’s talent, height, skills, practice, determination and ball handling. There’s shooting techniques, speed, quickness and strength. Add in some basketball IQ and a splash of natural feel for the game. But one thing, over and over, wins out. One thing gets rebounds and picks up the turnovers. One factor makes much of the difference–if not all of it.
Who wants the ball more.
It’s really that simple.
What are you striving for now? What are you after? Is it fame, success, money? Recognition, book sales or YouTube views? What’s holding you back compared to the one who’s killing it?
Why does the one 12-year old of the same height, strength and experience get the rebound more often than the other guy? He just wants it more. The ball has his name on it. He believes it’s his and he wants it back.
What you want more than the next guy? They might have more talent, more experience and even more patience, but if you want it more, you have a pretty good shot at it. So, the question remains, how much do you want it?
