Those are the words of US basketball coach Gregg Popovich. And yes, it is not all about us.

We cannot live in the past. We cannot live for us. In his case, we cannot dwell on past plays. We play the game as a team. Popovich’s training in the Air Force Academy taught him the focus is on the current mission.

According to The Associated Press, Popovich has been telling his team that winning the World Cup will be tough. The loss only reaffirmed what he was saying.

Whatever we strive to do, let us remember it is not about us; it is about others.
