We will see people who will be given the opportunity to lead and I hope they will step up and lead. Be an advocate for those who need inspiration, set a new standard and role models for all of us.
I recently spoke for a college athletic team. I’m always impressed with the commitment it takes not only to be a college athlete but all the things they have to do outside of their athletic commitment. Being a college athlete teaches many skills from teamwork to time management. As I progressed through my talk, I started to veer off into a message of the difference between being a good team to an outstanding team and how outstanding teams have athletes that learn to check their egos at the door, focusing on the common mission. Personal significance and having those who need all the notoriety are not highly valued, it’s about the team. They figure out that “Christmas is not MY birthday.”
What resonated to me is that from the first of time to today, it’s your performance in anything that counts most, not your words.
The mindset of not only staying in the moment but they focus in and keep the MAIN THING the MAIN THING.
One of the first lessons I learned about goal setting is when you make a goal, take immediate action!
The message finally stuck, when given the opportunity to be around someone who can impact your life, make the investment in your uncertainty!
