Here are some of the nuggets or motivational reminders I acquired from watching Coach Carter:
- Be committed
- Go the extra mile
- Never stop believing
- Consistency matters
- Teams are powerful when they realize the power of unity
- Focus your attention on what you want until you achieve it, and then, surpass even that
- Other people's expectations of you have nothing to do with what you expect of yourself
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you NOT to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."Reflect on this beautifully written quote. Consider your deepest fears and then let them all go, move forward, and keep shining. I believe in the powerful light that is within you. Now, I pray, YOU believe!!!
