This article from Business Insider is a nice reminder that most of the all-time greatest athletes work a lot harder than most people realize.
They have an obsession with being successful.
They have trainers.
They have mentors.
They have coaches.
They have places to practice.
Compare the mindset and work ethic of your all-time greatest employees with the mindset and work ethic of these athletes. What are the similarities? What are the differences?
Now compare and contrast the mindsets and work ethic of your great employees with your average or your below average employees. How can you convince all of your employees to have an obsession with success? What more can you give them? What more do they have to give?
At Rehearsal, we believe that practice builds ability and capability and that grows into an obsession with success.
The bottom line is that we are not all born talented; we are born human. But with practice and hard work, we can achieve anything we can dream.
