One of the fascinating things I enjoy about being a reader is the common things that tend to surface. For instance, hard work, having a “serving others first” mentality, and perseverance are just some that come to mind.
Another great lesson that is often seen in great leadership is to emphasize focusing on the job at hand (our responsibilities), rather than on results. Too often, whether it’s on a sports team, or a business there can be such a focus on short-term results that excellence and long term health are sacrificed, often at great peril. Do the right thing–today!
With that in mind, I love this quote from John Wooden, hall of fame coach with UCLA’s men’s basketball program:
“STRIVE to always bring a winning attitude and steady effort to practice and competition. Success is peace of mind, which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you made the effort to do your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming”.
Get the idea here? If you are doing all you are capable of doing, what more can be expected of you? Regardless of what others might think, you have the peaceful satisfaction of knowing you gave it your all. The challenge for each of us though is, are we giving it our all? Are you really giving your best to become the best you ?
