Key Points from the Interview with Dick Vitale
- Wake up every day, have a plan and a goal. Know what you want to achieve that day and have a plan for how to achieve it.
- Dick lost sight in one of his eyes as a kid. As a result, he got picked on a lot because his eye would wander. He realized at an early age a lesson that’s served him across the years. You have two choices. You can roll over and do nothing, or you can pick yourself up and move forward.
- You can make excuses for the failure and let it grow, or you can say, “You know, I’m pretty good at what I do, and I can survive.”
- That attitude is what let him recover from the greatest failure of his career, when he was fired as head coach of the Detroit Pistons, a dream job for him.
- He has welcomed the attention and energy around him. When others question if it’s been tiring, he says he’s loved every moment of it. The people around him are who make him who he is.
- Have pride and passion in pursuit of your goals and dreams, a lot of positive things will happen.
- Be good to people and people will be good to you.
