  2. Regardless of how much one would like to win, without the proper preparation, it makes no difference. Everything done with the necessary motivation and preparation is done right. Like the old saying goes, "Practice makes perfect." Constant practice is an enormous help in memorizing and improving upon anything, whether it be a sport or a school subject. Practice and preparation are vital to success in almost anything, so always prepare.

  8. I think that the preparation is the latch key to win in anything in life. Preparation is important because you always have to be prepare for anything and the you have to make sure that you are ready for the thing that you are going to do. For example the SAT you prepare for them by reading a lot and looking up words that mite be in the test. Then you also go and ask a teacher to help you prepare and thats preparation in preparing for something that is really important.

  9. what John Wooden says is true. The will to prepare yourself is more important that actually winning. you can say wanna win but if you don't have the will and the power to do it i doubt that winning will come your way.

  11. Always be prepared when you are heading for success. it takes time and hard work. sometimes it not easy at all but you need to believe you can make it. if people didn't believe in them self they wouldn't go anywhere.

  15. I think that this quote is a very good quote. You have to practice hard everyday with your team so you can win. If you don't practice hard you are not going to win at all and you are not going to be proud of yourself.
