I have the priviledge of working for one of the greatest men I’ve ever met, Bill Curry. He has been sharing his characteristics of a Champion with the team the last few weeks during morning meetings, and I am going to do a quick re-cap here. He also spoke at the Little Rock Arkansas Touchdown Club yesterday, once that video is online I’ll post a link here. It’s really good stuff.
Characteristics of a Champion
1- A Champion Shows Up- No excuses, a champion shows up and works hard everyday
2- Singleness of Purpose- A champion competes with one thing in mind
3- Unselfish- A champion doesn’t care who gets the credit
4- Tough- Being honest when others are not
5- Smart/Prepared- Willing to do what the competition is not
6- Never Quit- A champion never quits, never.
