LOU HOLTZ NOTES

Thanks to Coach Eric Musselman for these notes on Lou Holtz:

* The only things that change you from where you are today to where you are going to be five years from now are the people you meet and the books you read.

* There are certain things in this world we all have in common, such as time. The difference is what we do with that time and how we use it. "If you're killing time, it's not murder, but pure suicide."

* Everybody has enthusiasm. Some people have it for thirty minutes. Some have it for thirty days, but the individual who can possess enthusiasm for 30 years will be the one people feel has been born on third base.
* Self discipline is the greatest asset any individual can possess. Without it, we cannot control our own destiny. We have scientists who have conquered space and the oceans but we cannot conquer ourselves.

* I have never known anyone who stood up and said the reason I'm successful is drugs or alcohol, but I have seen and read ofthousands who said my life is a mess because of drugs and alcohol.

* Ability determines capability; attitude dictates performance.

* We don't sell the next 4 years to our players. We sell thenext forty.
