“Being listened to is so close to
being loved that some people
cannot tell the difference”.
David Oxford
• “Coaching is a profession
of love. You can’t coach
people unless you love
them.”
• Eddie Robinson

Coach/Role Model
“Who you are speaks
so loudly, I can’t hear
what you are saying.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
• “We are what we repeatedly
do. Excellence, then, is not an
act but a habit.”
• Aristotle
Nathaniel Branden
• “How we feel about ourselves crucially affects
virtually every aspect of our experience, from
the way we function at work, in love, in sex, to
the way we operate as parents, to how high in
life we are likely to rise.”
• “I cannot think of a single psychological
problem that is not traceable to a poor selfconcept.”
Nathaniel Braden
• Six Pillars of Self
Esteem
• “The Man in the Glass!!”
Self Esteem
• What it’s not!
– It’s not a sometime thing, it’s all the time.
– It’s not bragging (Today’s peacock, curl in the tail)
– It’s not an illusion or an hallucination
– It is not the euphoria or buoyancy that may be
temporarily induced by a drug, a compliment or a
love affair
– It is not empty praise that bears no relationship to
the athletes actual accomplishments.
Self Esteem
What it’s not: (cont)
• - It is not being good looking, wealthy, or
having many friends. Many of these people
cannot get through a single day without drugs.
• - It is not 12 hugs a day at school. Kid still has
to go home. Gets a false sense.
• - Nothing bothers you if you have high self
esteem.
• 1900 – 90% of grandchildren lived with or in
the neighborhood of grandparents
• 1940 – 70%
• Today – Less than 10%
• The “Gran Torino” granddaughter.
