Pretend It’s The Championship

As my daughter, Chloe, gets ready for basketball camp, she looks at me and says, “Daddy, you know how I get myself to play hard? I pretend it’s the championship.”

If that didn’t give me insight!

I’ve always felt the best advice can be so simple, stuff right in front of us.

How do you play your best? How do you motivate yourself to work hard? How do you give it your all? How do you stay competitive? How do you get better?

You do what my seven-year-old daughter would do—she pretends she is playing for the championship.

Even when it’s a basketball summer camp with no games.
