Larry Bird was asked who is the current NBA player he could win a championship with.
He picked Kobe Bryant. Larry said Le Bron James is fun to watch and an incredible athlete but Kobe Bryant has the immense desire to win.
Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Bill Russell, Lance Armstrong, and Joe Montana are some of the most recognized athletes because they possessed the desire to win.
Other athletes certainly want to win, but don't need to.
The difference is like a child asking for a treat and an adult asking for a raise.
The child pesters and pesters and pesters until he gets his treat. The adult asks once and then never asks again.
Generations have enjoyed watching athletes who are obsessed with the desire to win.
But what about us? Do we have a "must win, burning desire to win against debt?
To save money and prepare for our future?
The world economy today is like a tied sports contest. We are in the 4th quarter with 30 seconds left. Will we use a "need to win
attitude" and prove our desire to get our financial houses in order?
