"3 things... 1)Tell the players what they need to know... 2)Repeat what you just told them... 3)Tell them what you just told them a thousand more times"... Bud Wilkinson... who some consider the greatest college football coach of all time... and led the Oklahoma Sooners to 47 straight wins...

 "There are no exceptions to this rule... human beings are just the kind of creatures that have to learn... and keep learning... from others, how to live." ...

Dallas Willard, The Divine Conspiracy

Being a disciple of Jesus involves a "want to" attitude.                                                

"18 One day as Jesus was walking along the shore of the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers-Simon, also called Peter, and Andrew-throwing a net into the water, for they fished for a living.

19 Jesus called out to them, "Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!" 20 And they left their nets at once and followed him.

21 A little farther up the shore he saw two other brothers, James and John, sitting in a boat with their father, Zebedee, repairing their nets. And he called them to come, too. 22 They immediately followed him, leaving the boat and their father behind."...  

Matthew 5:18-22 

Being a disciple of Jesus involves a "yield to" attitude.  

25Large crowds were traveling with Jesus, and turning to them he said: 26"If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters-yes, even his own life-he cannot be my disciple. 27And anyone who does not carry his cross and follow me cannot be my disciple. Luke 14 25-27
