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.
