What Can You Learn From The Spurs

Jul 14, 2008
Did you happen to see the onslaught the San Antonio Spurs put on the other night against the Utah Jazz?

The more important question: What can you learn from them?

We live in a world today where every one pays attention to the outside of everything, how things look, and the way things may seem. What most people do not understand is what makes the outside, what makes things seem the way they are.

Here is something I live by every day and it helps me out tremendously.

The Roots create the fruits, and the invisible create the visible.

What does this exactly mean? On a tree, you have the roots of the tree, the branches, and then the fruit that come off the branches. Now what makes those fruits? It's the roots of the tree that make the fruits. It's the invisible (what you can not see) that creates the visible (the fruits that you can see). The Roots of the tree determine how the fruits of the tree will turn out and grow. The same goes for you and your basketball career, or the San Antonio Spurs.

It's all the things they do that you do not see that makes them so incredible. All the long practices, all the coaching, all the commitment from all the players.

Can you see commitment; is it a visible or invisible thing? Well, you can not actually see commitment itself, but you can see the results of commitment. But again, the invisible creates the visible.

Just like your career. Are you willing to do what it is going to take to get your game to the next level? More important, are you ready for the next level?

Do you have the invisible tools, to create the visible results?

There is one real person who can answer that, YOU? You simply are going to have to look yourself in the mirror and ask yourself the exact same questions I just asked you.

And you are going to have to answer yourself truthfully. If there is one person you can not lie to it is yourself.

Do you really want this, to you want to really dominate the court and take you game to the pros? Here let me give you an example of some of the sacrifices some of these so called play boys NBA Stars do.

I was just on the phone with Larry Hughes Agent, I am very good friends with him and we discuss things quite often.

He told me that Larry injured himself last game and has some kind of rupture in his Achilles. And that was not even the most shocking thing.

I simply said oh so he's done for this year, He replied no way, are you crazy, he is taking anesthesia shots to get rid of the pain, (4 times a day) just so he can play!

And he is going to take care of the problem and surgery after they win the championship. Did you hear that last part? He said that he was going to take care of the problem after they win a championship.

Not only does this guy have the will and commitment to keep playing but he also has the confidence and desire to believe that they are going to win the championship this year. Why do you think he is where he is at?


It's simply because he has the invisible traits that make the visible results. Start trying to dig deeper and really evaluate your inner self, because with out the invisible things, the visible will just go to waste.
