"10 Lessons From Holiday Bowl 2023!"Jan 08, 2024
🎙️ There are so many life lessons from sports!
🎙️ As I watched the match between the University of Louisville and the University of Southern California for the 2024 Holiday Bowl, the more I watched the more the life lessons became more and more evident.
🎙️ Is energy a gift? Once you lose your energy, drive, momentum can you get it back? Sometimes it’s just one play that can cause the energy to shift in the opposite direction.
🎙️Do you want to win? We’ve seen many games where the most talented team doesn’t always get the ‘W’.
🎙️ We can’t seem to get away from the fundamentals. Fundamentals are key in every sport.
🎙️ Half time adjustments are necessary on the field as well as in your personal life. If you don’t have joy, what adjustments do you need to make to have more joy filled days?
🎙️ Setting goals without creating a strategy is just a dream!
🎙️ Make sure you take the time to stop and be thankful for what you have and where you are. As athletes I know that you are always setting the bar very high for yourselves and always reaching for greater heights. Remember to take the time to celebrate your accomplishments.
🎙️ Don’t get frazzled if you are behind in the game. You made it to this point for a reason. You have what it takes to make a comeback. Just keep your composure and run the plays that the coaches have designed.
🎙️ Don’t just stay in a bad situation. Roll out of the pocket! Do something different, look up field!
🎙️ Stay ready so that you don’t have to get ready! Miller Moss clearly was prepared for the assignment even as the second string quarterback. If opportunity knocked on your door today, could you open the door to the assignment?
🎙️ Do you believe that you can win this current game regardless of your record? Can you put the past behind you and focus on today’s assignment?
🎙️ In order to change your mindset you have to change your input. When your input changes then your output is forced to change. It’s insanity to think that you are going to get different results doing the same thing over and over again.
🎙️ Are you dong the most with your today? Yesterday’s wins won’t give you victory over today’s opponent. Sure yesterday’s adversities help to equip you for today but you must have the belief that you can win today!
🎙️ Finally, take ownership for what happens! Don’t blame other people like the referee’s for their bad calls, coach not calling the right play, your Mom, your Dad… like don’t blame other people. This is the hand that you have been dealt, now play it to the best of your ability!
🎙️ Everything is a life lesson. Especially sports. Make sure you learn the lesson or God has an interesting way of making you repeat the situation until you get the lesson.
🎙️ Start to look at life through the lens of… what can I learn from this experience whether you get the win or not!
🎙️ Be prepared!!!
