This was a huge lesson!!
I am a mad keen rugby fan ( fanatic actually) and was up this morning at 4.30am to watch the mighty All Blacks play in the world cup final. Sitting in the sun after a monumental encounter I got to thinking about what the team achieved and how if I could adopt some of their philosophies into my business , what could be possible?
Here's what I figured out.( for me that is!)
Setting a goal is paramount and never take your eye of the prize
It takes time, commitment, dedication and unwavering belief
The team is more important than the individuals in it
Give 100% of yourself for the team
Go hard or go home
When a team mate is battling, take up the slack
When things seems tough , be tougher
When the plan seems not to be working , don't panic and stick to the plan
When the competition come at you hard, push back harder
When you win the prize , be humble but celebrate the win
Repeat , repeat , repeat.......
Take all folks
