When I was first starting out as a high school coach, my coaches had a lot of different motivational quotes that I would read to my players.
They were from different athletes, and they all said the same thing: “You need to train like you play.”
But they were all wrong.
When you work hard enough and stay focused, you will actually improve.
As a coach, I always wanted to be able to tell my players, “This is the way to play football, and this is how to work hard.”
It is the same way with motivation.
The more I used it in my coaching, the more I became a better coach.
It is a way to motivate, but also a way for us to practice hard.
So, the next time you hear a motivational quote, try to use it to motivate yourself.
