| Famous Coach/Sports Quotes
What makes a good coach? Complete dedication.
The sterner the discipline, the greater the devotion.
A successful coach needs a patient wife (husband/family), loyal dog (cat/pet),
and great quarterback (scrum half) - and not necessarily in that order.
A life of frustration is inevitable for any coach whose main enjoyment is winning.
Success isn't something that just happens - success is learned, success is practiced and then it is shared.
The only way to maximize potential for performance is to be calm in the mind.
Make sure that team members know they are working with you, not for you.
You can motivate players better with kind words than you can with a whip.
You can motivate by fear, and you can motivate by reward.
But both those methods are only temporary.
The only lasting thing is self motivation.
Never let your head hang down. Never give up and sit down and grieve.
Find another way.
I don't have any tricky plays, I'd rather have tricky players.
Every game is an opportunity to measure yourself against your own potential.
You are never really playing an opponent. You are playing yourself,
your own highest standards, and when you reach your limits, that is real joy.
Discipline is not a dirty word.
Without self-discipline, success is impossible, period.
It is how you show up at the showdown that counts.
Victory belongs to the most persevering.
