The article below highlight some features in Jay Wright’s book and has some excellent thought on success. Some of my favorites are featured here:
It starts with attitude.
“That’s what you have control of,” Wright says. “It’s not so much about what you do on the particular play if you make the shot or miss the shot; it’s about how you react on the next play. Sometimes in a game you don’t have control of a ref’s bad call or your teammate’s mistake, but you control how you react to it.”
“On last year’s team, our goal wasn’t to win the national championship,” Wright explains. “Our goal was to be committed to Villanova core values — to remain humble and hungry, to play hard together, smart, and with pride, and to do it with a great attitude.”
The coach says he and his staff began educating recruits about Villanova’s values as much as they worked to sell the prospects on signing.
