It’s time to Ruin Your Own Game

Steph Curry is arguably the best shooter the game of basketball has ever seen. He has been wowing fans since his breakout years at Davidson College, and during his current stint with the Golden State Warriors. And by the way, he’s just a normal looking dude, and not some athletic mutant that we have become accustomed to see playing professional sports.

So how did Steph Curry become one of the most dominant basketball forces at around 6’2″ tall and 190 pounds?

He ruined the game of basketball.

If you go to any youth, high school, or college basketball games, you will see players jacking up 3-pointers like they are in a lay-up line. Even 7 footers find themselves too often taking long jump shots instead of working on their inside game.

Why, you ask? Steph Curry.

He has currently ruined the game of basketball because people want to be like him, but without the sweat-equity that got him there. Sound familiar?

On the surface, when you watch Steph play on TV, he makes it look so easy. Just a flick of his wrist and the ball is launched with the perfect arch toward the rim. He is so good that when he misses, most people are surprised.

In addition, he is also one of the best ball handlers and passers on the planet. In short (no pun intended), he is a basketball monster.

He has achieved this level of expertise by an unmatched work ethic and a daily practice routine that is legendary. This unbridled focus to improve is a decades long journey for Steph. What we are now witnessing are the fruits of those decades of hard labor and sacrifice.

So tell me about your unmatched work ethic and daily practice routine to get better and dominate your competitors.

How are you ruining your own game so that people want to be like you, but will fail because they aren’t as focused as you?

Huh? I can’t hear you when you’re mumbling.

If Steph Curry was in your business, do you think he would take those same daily training principles and apply them to your industry. You’re damn right he would, and eventually would ruin your game as well.

Hey Player, why don’t you do it instead. The clock is ticking.
