Character & Mental Toughness- The Commodore Creed

If I had to leave my sons and players just one piece to commit to memory it would be this……….

NEVER UNDERESTIMATE YOUR OPPONENT

WORK ON YOUR WEAKNESSES UNTIL THEY BECOME YOUR STRONG POINTS

REMEMBER THAT A GREAT EFFORT IS USUALLY THE RESULT OF A GREAT ATTITUDE

DEDICATE YOURSELF TO A MIGHTY PURPOSE.

WIN WITH HUMILITY, LOSE WITH GRACE

IGNORE THOSE WHO DISCOURAGE YOU

WORK TO IMPROVE YOUR MORAL AND SPIRITUAL STRENGTHS AS WELL AS YOUR PHYSICAL ONES

REMEMBER THAT HOW YOU CONDUCT YOURSELF OFF THE FIELD IS JUST AS IMPORTANT AS HOW YOU CONDUCT YOURSELF ON THE FIELD.

TALENT IS GOD GIVEN—BE HUMBLE
FAME IS MAN GIVEN—BE THANKFUL
CONCEIT IS SELF GIVEN—BE CAREFUL

DON’T ASK TO BE DEPRIVED OF TENSION AND DISCIPLINE–THESE ARE TOOLS THAT SHAPE SUCCESS

DO WHAT HAS TO BE DONE, WHEN IT HAS TO BE DONE, AND AS WELL AS IT CAN BE DONE

REMEMBER THAT WHEN YOU ARE NOT WORKING TO IMPROVE, YOUR COMPETITION IS.

ALWAYS GIVE YOUR BEST.
PRACTICE LIKE A CHAMPION
PLAY LIKE A CHAMPION

H. Jackson Brown Jr.
