Preparing Your Mind for Winning When Coaching Football

Youth football coaching can be one of the best platforms for character development for young men. Unfortunately it also often has a very ugly side as well. If you follow the strategies and methods spelled out in my system, the likelihood of your team having significant success is very high. Of those that reported back to me last season, over 98% of the teams had winning records and over 72% finished in the top 2 places in their leagues. There were many miraculous worst to first turnarounds reported from teams from Philadelphia to Hawaii. Unfortunately many of the coaches that reported back to me also had similar reports on the green eyed monster of jealousy that is part of the nature of fallen man that reared its ugly head against them. As far away as Panama in the Canal Zone, even South American youth football coaches are afflicted with this dreaded disease. While this affliction is at nearly epidemic levels here in the United States, us Americans don’t own the franchise on this ugly wart.

Many youth football coaches tell me at the clinics I give that I’m some kind of prophet. Rest assured I’m not, ( In Old Testament Days if you made one mistake as a Prophet, you were stoned to death) BUT I can usually tell you what your parents are going to act like and say when you start using my system and practice methodology. Down to the exact phrases I can predict what your opposition coaches are going to say in your league and almost always the results are the same. It really is uncanny, the guys just laugh and tell me เว็บบอล ดีที่สุด these stories at the clinics, they all start off the same “When I read your book, I didn’t think what you said would happen to me, but it did, to the letter” then they go into long stories where the coaches are jumping in on each other trying to get the next word in, while all the assistants stand there smiling, laughing and nodding.

Well guys it all isn’t all fun and games whenyou are coaching football, when you turn it around like that and are winning big every week, the jealousy monster WILL be there to try and devour you. While the usual sources of said jealousy are those malcontents that lose in nearly every part of their daily lives, you will also find it from some sources you may not expect. Youth Football coaches are some of the greatest guys in the world, those in it for the right reasons. But for those that aren’t, watch out, they can be some of the most catty, covetous malcontents you have ever met. I’m telling this to warn you, so you can expect it. You can do everything 100% right, be the nicest guy in the planet, be the most friendly, compassionate and giving coach in your league, it won’t matter. The malcontent is always looking to bring down others and make excuses for his failure. All you can do is to do your best, love him anyway and know that it is going to happen.

Even “St John” Wooden, considered one of the coaches with the highest levels of integrity, compassion, manners and morality in the 20th century had this to say about jealousy:

“I wonder why there are so many that want to build up the weak by tearing down the strong?
