Example text

Now, I believe I can coach in any capacity. That’s not an arrogant statement. I can coach athletes, salesmen, teachers, or CEOs because it’s all coaching. It’s all management. It’s about being a master manager. Other people can teach the skills, to field the ball, hit the ball, and catch the ball, but it’s hard to teach, or to coach, determination. It’s hard to coach people to stretch themselves to aspire higher. That is the crux of being a master manager. How do you learn determination? You begin by considering your environment—your work environment, your spiritual environment, your nutritional environment, your relationship and family environments.

Mistakes happen. In basketball, turnovers and missed shots happen. But they can be overcome—with heart. Sports fans—coaches, too–often talk about athletes who don’t have a lot of talent but who succeed anyway. They have a lot of heart. The Bible in James 2:20 says, “. . ” You can be talented, but without confidence and heart, you will not be able to overcome the person who just may be more talented than you, or to face the challenges and obstacles that will arise. The Bible also says, in Romans 2:11, “there is no respect of persons with God,” meaning you should never think others can be blessed with “talents,” as your personal gifts are called in the Bible, and that you cannot be blessed.

It’s hard to coach people to stretch themselves to aspire higher. That is the crux of being a master manager. How do you learn determination? You begin by considering your environment—your work environment, your spiritual environment, your nutritional environment, your relationship and family environments. Why? Because your environment shapes your determination. It’s hard to be determined when you come from an abusive home. It’s hard to be determined when you come from a school with out-of-date books and teachers who are afraid of their students.
