The Power of Vision

Vision: An imaged idea or a goal toward which one aspires.

I like that definition of vision. Since college, I’ve had a vision to be involved in girls basketball full time by training, hosting events, and creating educational material like books, DVDs, and courses. I’ve been working on that vision since about 2006.

I started with one camp that only 5 people attended. To hosting a league with over 70 players.  It’s not easy. There have been many setbacks and sidetracks. I’m not full time yet. However, my desire to see my vision come to past is just as strong as it was in 2006.

To move forward. To draw yourself near something. Starts with the end in mind. Starts with a dream,  a goal. It starts with having a vision. The video below is an excellent example of a person having vision, having inspiration, using visualization –and putting in the countless hours of work– to see their vision come to life.

P-15 Workout: February 8, 2015

February is Free Throw Month.

Tournament time is here. Championships are won and lost with free throws.

The P-15 Workout is an opportunity to get an extra 15 minutes of individual practice in before or after team practice. You decide if you want to do the workout everyday this week or come up with your own schedule.

This Week’s P-15 Workout: Free Throws

Make 50 Free Throws. If time remains, take shots from any where on the court, as long as, it is in your shooting range.

Tip: Take advantage of the 10 second count you have to shoot free throws. You should have a routine established, where as, you do the exact same thing every single time you shoot a free throw. Setting your feet. Bending your knees. Number of dribbles you take. Looking at your target before taking the shot. Lastly, following through.
