Allen Iverson

Allen Iverson was one of the best Basketball Players in the NBA a few years back. The video above is Allen ranting about "practice". His coaches suspended him from games and also fined him for missing "practice".

Apparently, Allen didn't really see practice as being important.  If he did view practice as important, he would never miss.  I guess Allen forgot what got him into the NBA.  I guess he forgot the 1,000 or so free throws he shot over is career.  I guess he forgot about how many pick-up games he played as a kid.  I guess he just forgot.

Ask yourself this: "Are you good at what you do?"  Hopefully the answer is yes.  If it is, then ask yourself this: (redneck language coming up) "How did you get good at what you do?"  PRACTICE.
Pick a plan, follow it to the letter relentlessly, stick your head up for air every once and a while to see where you are.

If you ever played any type of sport in college, high school or junior high, you know what I am talking about.  If you have ever studied hard for a class and earned an A, you know what I am talking about.  A coach or a teacher gave you a plan.  They MADE you follow it and guess what... you probably got a little bit better than when you started.  I had some bad coaches growing up, but boy did I love to practice.  I got better.

Allen Iverson didn't care about practice.  Allen forgot about the importance of practice.  I hope you don't.  I hope you value every step you take.  I hope you reach one goal and then make another.  I hope you are willing to do whatever it takes to reach whatever goal you have.  Don't talk the talk.  Walk the walk like the guy in the video below.  #Hungry
