Pete Carroll was the former coach of the Seattle Seahawks for 14 years and went to the playoffs for 10 of those years, including two Superbowl appearances and one Championship and a total of 170 wins.
If you know anything about Pete, one of his mantra’s that can be heard bouncing off the walls of the locker room after a win is how you can’t win a game in the first, second or third quarter. It can only be one in the fourth.
As true in life, we can learn from one of the greats; This journey in this thing called life, has many twists and turns, up’s and down’s and moments of stumbling. But, we can learn a lot about ourselves and others along the way if we chose. We can make adjustments after the first quarter – halftime or even going into the fourth quarter that may make all the difference.
The key is this: we’re still in the game, so we always have a chance.
