It's been shown that many best undrafted NBA players are drafted way too high. That is, they are ranked much higher than their talent level suggests. It happens because of a few critical bad habits people learn as they grow up, which crush the creative pathways in the brain. And like all bad habits, they can break them if you are willing to work at them. Here are eight of the very worst bad habits that could be holding you back every day:
1) You compare yourself with other people and what they have; 2) You worry about what others might think; 3) You try to impress instead of being true to yourself; 4) Your self-esteem fluctuates from extreme highs to lows; 5) You're easily discouraged; 6) You're always focused on what you don't have or aren't doing; 7) You are inflexible and stubborn 8) You believe in positive thinking.
The difference between the top ten percent of people who are highly successful, happy, fulfilled, and free from worry and anxiety — not to mention rich — and the other 90 percent is that they have learned to break these bad habits and replace them with the following good practices:
1) You only compare yourself with yourself. 2) You are true to yourself, even if it means losing friends; 3) You can only control your behavior; 4) Your self-esteem is unwavering; 5) When you make a mistake, you think, "Good! I've learned something new. I'll make sure not to repeat it." 6) You are easily satisfied; 7) You are always focused on what you do have and how you can improve; 8) You're flexible and adaptable.

2. They only compare themselves with themselves
It's important to note that many of the above habits are things you should be doing anyway for self-improvement or life in general, so it's not like this list tells you to do something supernatural -- break some bad habits and replace them with good ones.
I could keep rattling off different professions, but I think you get the point—people who are good at what they do have some traits in common. To be more specific, there are four things that all great people have in common.
1) They're Focused 2) They don't give up 3) They're self-Disciplined 4) They Don't Make Excuses
To be the best, you have to practice like the best. That's why I say that it is not an accident that Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods are both so dedicated to their sports. It isn't because they were born with some mystical talent that you or I were not. It's because they've developed the four traits of greatness mentioned above and made them a part of their character.
Now you might be thinking, "I already know all this stuff… it's so simple." But maybe, like me, you have found that breaking bad habits we've had for years is not so easy. Yet, I believe that you can make this change because it's more than just changing behavior or habits — it's about becoming a better person.
And what if improving your life and being the best meant getting rich? Wouldn't going from broke to rich mean that you are becoming the best you?"
The NBA draft remains one of the most challenging and competitive events in sports. The draft is not just for players; it's also a chance to get better acquainted with team dynamics. Getting into a good situation can have an enormous effect on player development and career earnings potential. In recent years, teams have been increasing interest in how they might use data analytics tools as part of their decision-making process when drafting prospects or trading assets.
