Organizing a basketball team

Topic: Job Value

Question

June 11, 2004

WHAT CAN I DO BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN IN STUATION LIKE THAT IN MANY TIME AND AT THE MOMENT I AM ORGANIZING MY OWN BASKETALL TEAM AND GET SPONSORSHIP

Adam - SOUTH AFRICA

Answer

In getting sponsorship, you want to show it is valuable to the company. Certainly, advertising the company as a sponsor is to their benefit. Also, appealing to their desire to promote athletics can be valuable to a company.

If you can find top people in a company who love basketball, it will really help.

Best wishes in your project.

How do you motivate kids?

Topic: Listen

Question

June 11, 2004

IF I RUNN BASKETBALL CLINIC WHAT CAN I SAY TO THE KIDS OR STUDENT AT THE FIRST PLACE OR DO YOU THINK IS BEST TO MOTIVATE THEM.

Adam - SOUTH AFRICA

3530

Answer

If they are there, they are already motivated.

The students want to become better and increase their skills. If the teacher is a good player, they will want to become as good as him one day. You can promise they will improve their skills.

But also, the kids want to have fun playing.

Others never seem to reciprocate

Topic: Being Special

Question

February 6, 2004

All my life I have always been first to recognize somebody else, to always thank others and encourage them. I always make everybody feel special.

I have also observed, however, that I don't get the same in return.
Is it because I make myself so available, am always considerate? Is it because I am being taken for granted?

Sincerely,
Bessik

Answer

Many people do not recognize others right away, thank or give encouragement. It could be shyness, being self-centered, lack of character, how they were brought up or some other reason. Needless to say, it can be very discouraging when you do something special and never get the same in return.

Once I had a conversation with a fellow I just met. For 45 minutes he told me all about himself and his life story, while I seemed very interested. The next day I saw him again and said "Hi." He said, "Do I know you?" Although that irritated me, I also realized that one of us had more character than the other.

You have to realize that YOU are the special person. If you are the one who performs positive acts and encourages others, then you are the leader and the champion. Some may appreciate what you do and not show it, and some may resent you for being so positive. But you are determining the type of person you are.

If you do run into someone who gives you encouragement, don't let that person go. Such people are rare and valuable.

Feeling judged by others

Topic: General

Question

January 1, 2004

My question:

Lately(I would say the last 2 years), with different people, I in some way feel judged or not taken seriously. This makes me feel frustrated. Sometimes it feels like I wanna ask the person:"Hey, what's your problem!?"As I said, it does'nt concern all people.

It also seems as those hated "quite sessions" comes around more often then before. I used to be able to handle them pretty good. I'm not sure if people sees this feeling in me. probably not, cause I'm actually good communicator, I don't have a problem with the social life.

So, what is my problem? Why do I feel this way?
Would appreciate an answer!
God bless!

Answer

Often people judge another by the impression the person makes. That could be how the person looks, dresses, sounds, or what he says. Take a look at the page at:
http://www.school-for-champions.com/value/impression.htm

Sometimes another person may act poorly to you if they are jealous and trying to put you down. But if it happens too often, you have to take a good look at yourself and what you are doing to cause this reaction in some people. Ask yourself if you talking too much or trying to impress others. If someone sees you trying to impress, they may think less of you.

Finally, if you act confident (not boastful), then others will think you are sure of yourself.

I hope some of these ideas help. I don't know enough of the situation to really give solid advice.

Link between money and motivation

Topic: Motivation

Question

December 10, 2003

is there a linkage between money and motivation? how strong is it?

Erica -

1544

Answer

Certainly the promise of money will motivate a person to do something. But it is really what the person will do with the money that is the motivator.

With money, you can buy a fancy car or a big house. Or you could hire people to do things for you and feel powerful and important. But if you were someplace where there was nothing to buy, or you were the type of person who didn't want those things, money would not be as great of a motivator.
