Expect More

Chef just learned that Cool Brees spent part of his offseason enrolled in FRE FLO DO motivational thought and speaking seminars, after Reggie Bush suggested that the training may improve his already lofty leadership skills.

(Apparently, the offer came after Drew politely refused Reggie's initial gift of an Elite 360 Xbox).

After two intensive weeks of mental training with Kappel LeRoy Clarke, Drew was asked to convert the sacred tenets of FRE FLO DO philosophy to gameday quotes. See the results yourself by comparing the FRE FLO DO mantra with Cool Brees' recent statements:

FRE FLO DO SAYS . . .
The FRĒ FLŌ DŌ® Experience is synonymous with conquering fears by facing them, understanding them, then transcending them with a lifelong commitment to total personal growth. The challenge of the FRĒ FLŌ DŌ® Student is to develop and practice a mental and physical ‘state of readiness’ so that positive responses to uncomfortable situations become so intuitive and fluid that from thought to action he or she exhibits a sort of human manifestation of flowing water!
COOL BREES SAYS . . .

"Just because we finished where we did last year, it doesn't mean that anything is going to be given to us. I think we even have to go out and work harder. Once you taste that level of success, human nature is to just relax.

But in our case, we're trying to TAKE THINGS TO THE NEXT LEVEL. We fell a game short of our ultimate goal last year. Our ultimate goal was not to make it to the NFC championship. It was to win the Super Bowl.

So that is our No. 1 priority, our No. 1 goal.

SO OUR ATTITUDE NOW SHOULD BE 'EXPECT MORE.'

THAT'S FOR OUR TEAM.

THAT'S FOR ALL OF NEW ORLEANS.

EXPECT MORE.

We're where we are because we worked extremely hard to get here. But there's still another level. Let's work extremely hard to get there."
