A timeless piece that represents the blood, sweat, and tears that you put into your craft. Respect the game, or the game won’t respect you.
Recite the affirmation out loud for two minutes in the morning, afternoon and the evening. I like to recite my affirmation after I finish brushing my teeth and washing my face. I also like to look at myself in the mirror as I repeat my affirmation. In the afternoon or evening, I like to write my affirmations down with a pen or pencil. To kill two birds with one stone, I will write my affirmations down using my off hand. It’s a great brain exercise. Try it out.
It was great seeing kids outside playing basketball and having fun. Before I asked to join in a game of 21, I observed a group of kids competing and having a good time. It took me back to the days when I was a kid and basketball meant everything to me. After I dominated all the games of 21 (I had to), several kids from the ages 6-14, come up to me afterward and asked if I could train them. That lead me to believe that they loved the game and were passionate about getting better. That was a good sign.
