Motivational quote by Larry Bird

It doesn't matter who scores the points, it's who can get the ball to the scorer.
Motivational sport quote by Larry Bird

Leadership is diving for a loose ball, getting the crowd involved, getting other players involved. It's being able to take it as well as dish it out. That's the only way you're going to get respect from the players.
Larry Bird sports quote

Leadership is getting players to believe in you. If you tell a teammate you're ready to play as tough as you're able to, you'd better go out there and do it. Players will see right through a phony. And they can tell when you're not giving it all you've got.
Quote by Larry Bird

Once you are labeled 'the best' you want to stay up there, and you can't do it by loafing around.
Larry Bird quote--motivational

Push yourself again and again. Don't give an inch until the final buzzer sounds.
Larry Bird quote

Before you can win, you have to believe you are worthy.
Mike Ditka  (born October, 1939) quote--motivational

Motivational quote by Mike Ditka

If you are determined enough and willing to pay the price, you can get it done.

Success isn't measured by money or power or social rank. Success is measured by your discipline and inner peace.
Mike Ditka quote

Success isn't permanent and failure isn't fatal.
Motivational quote by Mike Ditka

The ones who want to achieve and win championships motivate themselves.
Mike Ditka quotation

What you feel spiritually. I think a lot of that has to do with it. If you have no spiritual life, chances are everything is going to aggravate you, you're going to fly off the handle at everything and that's what I did in the past. I've kind of got that under control now.
