Last week we moved on from our series on Perfectionism and began a new journey. I thought I was going to be talking about quotes that I will be using with my varsity boys' basketball team over the course of our season. The quotes will be based on the Core Covenants that our team has come up with that we feel will establish the identity that we are seeking for our team. I told you that I would be telling you this week what our covenants are, and that I would begin with a quote or a few quotes on the first covenant and then continue in that vein throughout the season.

However, last week I went back to Dr. Brene Brown and her book "Daring Greatly." I decided to talk about the entire "Man in the Arena" quote from Teddy Roosevelt from which Brene Brown got that title for her book. That's because I will be using that with my team, too. Also, I had not gotten to our Core Covenants yet with my team, so it was the perfect time to talk about "The Man in the Arena."

Well, I still haven't started with our Core Covenants. We are actually doin cuts (Yuck!) and picking our teams tonight. Therefore, we won't start our Core Covenants until later this week or early next week. So today, I have a special treat for you from an unlikely source - Arnold Schwarzenegger!

He has a new book out that my step-daughter, Maggie, got me. It's called "Be Useful: Seven Tools for Life." I am only a few chapters into it, but it is so good, and it is filled with so many great concepts that I have actually started reading parts of it to my team. So, I thought I would do the same with you. So for this week and probably next week, you get to hear quotes and ideas from The Terminator!!

As always, our background music is "Dance in the Sun" by Krisztian Vass.
