Each year the blog takes on a different focus. In 2019 the goal is for each post to bring you the reader a lesson, quote, message, or story that can help you grow.
In every sport there are fundamentals that some coaches emphasize over others. A friend and current college head basketball coach at the University of Houston is Kelvin Sampson. His team is currently ranked #15 in the country.
Photo of Kelvin and I when he was at University of Oklahoma (2005). He was a senior on the Pembroke State basketball team my first year of coaching college basketball at was is now called UNC Pembroke.
He is fanatical about rebounding.
His teams do that exceptionally well and he has also rebounded professionally over the course of his career.
When your opponent misses a shot or your own team misses a shot and you gain possession that is REBOUNDING. Rebounding is not glamourous and very seldom will it make ESPN Top 10 List.
Rebounding is important in life also. It is how we go from disappointment to taking action to better our lives. It is easier to do when you have a spiritual foundation.
I came across a 2017 blog post by Capazin Thornton.
She is Christian speaker and author who lives in California.
She reminds all of us that disappointment is temporary. I love the quote I picked up in my coaching career. There isn’t Winning and Losing there is only “Winning and Learning”. What did the disappointment teach you that can help you grow? I also believe “We repeat what we don’t repair”. You have to REBOUND from your disappointments.
I have placed a link to that post here
I also found one more blog post from Ivan Widjaya
She is the Founder/CEO of Previso Media
Her post has three takeaways specifically for rebounding from a career setback.
She writes about:
- Blame Game
- A Sign
