Two monks, Tanzan and Ekido were walking along a path early one day on their way to a faraway temple for a weekend retreat. A heavy rain had been falling, making the going slow and treacherous. As they rounded a bend which would then take them to a small bridge spanning a stream, they met a lovely young woman in a silk kimono. The hapless young woman was unable to cross the now raging stream because the small bridge had been washed out by the heavy rain. She was at a loss as to what to do and seeing the two monks, begged them to help her...


Hey Coach....What's wrong with me? You told me before I joined the team that I'd be your number one guy, that I'd start in my position. The whole team played really bad in that first game, yet you benched me and then didn't play me for two whole weeks! What's wrong with me?

You told me to keep working hard and that when I played well I'd get my starting position back. So I believed you and really busted my butt. After I finally got a chance to get in, I had the...


Here's a couple of alarming statistics for you:  Nearly 2 out of every 3 children quit sports by age 10; That's almost 66.6%! This climbs to 3 out of every 4 children or 75% quitting by the ages of 13-15.

What’s this gift of success? TEACH THEM HOW TO FAIL!

There is no question that how you handle failure will...


It's that magic time of year again. College and professional football is winding down to post season play. There's the college bowl games and the National Championship, the NFC & AFC playoffs and then the Superbowl. It's so exciting, because already the coaches' heads have started to roll. After all, who better to blame for a losing or a not-winning-enough season than the coach? It kind of gives the illusion that how you measure a team and coach's success is simply by his won-loss record.

It's like that in almost every Division I College and professional sport. If the team fails...


I recently got a phone call from a college student who was writing a paper on the abuse of steroids. He asked me what I'd say to a collegiate athlete who was cheating in that manner. What I said to him was that by college age, it's just a little too late to address this particular problem of dishonesty. The cheating issue needs to be handled much earlier.

Cheating is rampant in youth sports today. probably more so than when I played as a junior athlete. There is a tremendous amount of pressure today on kids to perform and win. Pressure to make select teams, to keep mom and dad happy...
