We can each learn lessons from watching athletes in motion. Out of the countless numbers of all combined sports, only a handful of athletes qualify as Gold Medal Champions at the Olympic Games.
Some athletes are fortunate that the right genetics were passed down. In addition, determination, finding the right coach, and continued strict goal setting are behind the effort to win. The same stamina applies to anything you truly wish to achieve including in your career or business.
Good days and bad days are commonplace. Unfortunately some sleepless nights accompany the bad days. But I learned that as long as we recognize the new day, it’s the right time to reflect on what went wrong. Learning from the lesson is key and then the time is right to create an improved path. This is a typical entrepreneurial day.
When I get down, I pick up the phone to speak with a good friend who understands similar situations. The conversation might take 5 minutes of an exchange of self-pity, and then 5 minutes of reciprocal encouragement. The remainder of our conversations become an exchange of new ideas to spur on the motivation to continue. By the end of our chat, we are each excited to move forward having recognized the past has passed.
Should you be the type who gets bogged down when things go awry, serious consider:
- Establishing a reciprocal agreement with a close friend to talk things out.
- Shifting your focus to helping others
- Welcoming the new day to try something new
- Take the Challenge
Create a new long-term goal that will showcase you as possessing greater expertise. The thought should increase motivation to get there.
Acquire the knowledge you need to ensure you are successful in achieving your new goal.
Not everything is easily learned. Be willing to take some hard knocks as well as fine tune what you learn along the way.
Be in the company of those who also challenges themselves to further build their capabilities. As you align with like-minded people in this regard, not only do you challenge yourself but also challenge one another in a positive fashion.
