Athletes are always looking for the secret to success. That one thing that will take them from mediocrity to Hall of Famer. As a coach, we emphasize working hard and being committed and putting in the time, but the athletes continue to come and ask for "something else" as if we are keeping a secret that will speed up the process. They seemingly expect a coach to hand them a "magic pill" that when consumed, will change everything immediately. There is no short cut in sports. The "magic pill" for most athletes is "hard work". For all of us, the "magic pill" in life is "faith".
Lord, help me to have faith and not to look for more or different.
