Video: "Success is not an accident. Success is a choice."


Stephen Curry is the hottest name in basketball. It's not even worth debating.

So what does that have to do with football you might ask? I'd argue that the formula for success that transformed the unheralded 160 pound high school shooting guard into the MVP of the NBA crosses boundaries of sports, and transcends into business and life.

Trust me, the message in this video is worth sharing, and this profile of how Curry molded himself into player that he is today leaves you with a wealth of knowledge that you can share with your players, or simply use for your own journey in life, or the coaching profession.

"My question to you is are the habits you have today on par with the dreams that you have for tomorrow?" the narrator Alan Stein asks.

"That's something that you need to ask yourself every single day. Because whatever you do on a regular basis today will determine where you will be tomorrow."

That by itself has the sound and look of something that would be a great addition to your weight room or locker room, and it goes right along with what Nick Saban said about success back in mid-April: “Young people have the illusion of choices. But if you want to be good, you have no choices”
