Here are 7 simple tips to having a more positive attitude:

  1. Passion.

Be passionate about what you are doing.  Don’t just try to get through the day or even a task.  Attack it with enthusiasm!

  1. Act.

Be proactive about all you do.  Don’t react.  Don’t wait for things to happen.    Make them happen.

  1. View Every Situation An Opportunity.

Bad things happen. That is a fact of life.  How you respond to things that happen around you good or bad will shape other outcomes.  Good can come from every situation, no matter how bad it may seem at the time.

  1. Be Grateful.

Having an attitude of gratitude is a consistent characteristic in successful people.  Striving for lofty goals is also consistent among successful people.  It is OK to dream big dreams.  We do!!

  1. Seize Every Opportunity.

Take advantage of all that comes your way.  Many times what comes your way is good and special.  Use those opportunities to springboard you to even better opportunities or greater heights.

  1. Sense of Humor.

Have it!  Show it!  People like to be around those who like to laugh and enjoy what they are doing.  Learn to laugh and be more positive about circumstances.  Sometimes it may mean laughing at yourself.   Most people find that a charming characteristic in people.

  1. Believe You Are in Charge Of Your Destiny.

No one can take away your dreams from you except for you. The sky is the limit!  Life is what you make it!  We are here to help you realize your dreams and aspirations.

NBA_WWCoach Wilson and his staff never put limitations on our players.  On the contrary, we coach to build confidence and skill level.  Player development has always been a staple or strength of our program.  Players always leave our program much better players, people, and students than when they first came in.  Look at the numbers of graduates (100%), NBA players (20) and pros (100+).  It helps to recruit players who have a positive attitude.  We think we have filled our roster with positive thinking players.  It shows in the relationship we have with them, their willingness to accept challenges, their ability to recover from mistakes, and eagerness to executes coaches’ directions.

The Islander Way!
