TBM: Applying basketball lessons to life

Basketball can teach you a lot. Carry the discipline and team-mentality with you in all aspects of life.

The Basketball Movement and the sport itself can teach you many things. The Movement focuses on skill development, conditioning, and team training. It also focuses on "soft skills" such as leadership, speaking, film analysis, marketing, and exposure.

All of these things are centered around the wonderful sport of basketball. However, the skills that you acquire can be applied off the court as well as on.

Focus, discipline, and competitiveness can benefit you in practice or in a game. What about after the buzzer sounds? The same skills are necessary for the most important parts of your life such as education, employment, and interpersonal relationships.

The discipline applied in practice needs to be applied to homework. Then, the locked-in focus of a game can be mirrored in test or quiz situations. At work, leadership and the ability to communicate effectively are paramount. Tough boss? No problem; you have probably already had a tough coach.

Follow your passion at The Basketball Movement

Hard work seems much easier when it is focused on something your passionate about. Think of the tough classes at school or projects at work as running lines/conditioning for basketball. There will always be parts that you don't like, but they are necessary to get a well-rounded finished product.

None of this is to say that you have to go through life with your nose to the grindstone 24/7. Never forget to have fun! Basketball is a blast to play, school is one of the most fun times of your life, and working means being able to fund some of your favorite things.

One of the best places that you can go to establish great habits and a winning mentality is The Basketball Movement.
