This Week’s Focus Point
By Dr. Jason Carthen
Get Better with Each Practice
There was no way someone that big should be able to move that fast, but he was doing it and the frightening truth was that he was getting better with each practice. The player I was referring to was an elite outside linebacker drafted out of USC who was shaping up to be a legitimate player in the National Football League very fast.
Always Try To Learn New Tendencies
One of the immediate things that I observed about this rookie linebacker was that he stayed behind to study film and research our NFL opponents to learn their tendencies. He also stayed behind in the weight room with me to get more work in and to maintain his weight and strength. This was uncommon for many rookies, but it pointed to something that is extremely important in business…desire.
Take Daily Dose of Desire
If I could give one thing to someone in leadership or business that would help them to become successful, it would be a daily dose of desire. You see, nothing trumps desire and a, “get it done attitude.” When you have desire, obstacles disappear, adversity ceases to matter, and naysayers are rendered silent…. Seize your desire today and shock the world with your ability to consistently add value to your company or followers.
Are you consistent with your desire and focus? If so, how do you do it? If not, what gets in the way?
