Teams with “Pride” Win

A note in the locker room of the Miami Heat, a National Basketball Association team, says this:

“When two teams meet that are equal in ability and execution, it’s the team that has pride that wins.”

We use “pride” a great deal to describe someone who has an unsinkable character.

These words add up to PRIDE:

  • Persistent. You stay with a task however difficult.
  • Responsible. You can be counted on to be in the right place, doing the right thing.
  • Inspirational. Your effort serves to inspire those who see you.
  • Determined. You don’t quit easily, you keep moving in the face of a challenge.
  • Enthusiastic. Your attitude is an encouragement to those around you.
