SELF HELP 101:

Is life getting you down? Well, get over it with a little help from "The Weekly Motivation," a feature on the Memphis Grizzlies' Web site amed at the Bluff City's "I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and, doggone it, people like me," set. In this week's installment, Jerry West, the Grizzlies' president of basketball operations, in conjunction with assistant president Gary Colson, advises, "In all of your adversities lies [sic] the seeds of equivalent advantages. In every defeat there is a lesson showing you how to win the next time. What are stumbling blocks and defeat before you can be stepping stones to victory if you remain determined. View your problems as opportunities. When it's dark enough you can see the stars." The deftness of the prose, comgbined with its uplifting qualities and general usefulness, has led some to speculate that West, who once guioded the L.A. Lakers through winning season after winning season, may just be using his job with the Grizzlies to position himself for a more satisfuying career with Hallmark.
