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.
