Dr. Phil often says that the difference between winners and losers is that winners do things that losers don't want to do. Are you willing to do what it takes to succeed in life? Joining Dr. Phil is Sean Payton, coach of the Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints and author of Home Team: Coaching the Saints and New Orleans Back to Life. They offer insight to guests who say they have drive but struggle to find balance and focus in their lives.

 

An Inspiring Journey

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton took a losing team that was known as "The Aints" and turned them into Super Bowl champions. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, he gave the city of New Orleans hope and a reason to celebrate.

 

"This became bigger than just winning the Super Bowl."

At 13, Destiny is already a gifted athlete, but with 42 basketball games and 80 softball games coming up in the next few months, her grandmother is worried that the seventh-grader isn't taking enough time to enjoy being a kid.

 

"I just want to push myself to the limit."

Too Eager or Too Many Excuses?

Liraz is jobless and living with her parents. She says she has drive but can't decide what to do with her life. Her friend, Maggie, says she's just making excuses, and she needs to get a job!

 

"There's always something that keeps holding me back."

 


Dedicated to Helping Others

Coach Payton and his wife, Beth, created Payton's Play it Forward, a foundation with the mission of improving the lives of children in health, education and social welfare. The Dr. Phil Foundation was one of the three beneficiaries that received $100,000 from the organization. Maggie, a big fan of the Saints, is visiting the show thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
