"Emulating An Icon"
Your Success Thought for the Week of August 2, 2006
This week's Success Thought of the Week is guest-authored by Dr. Brad A. Ward.
I have admired Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods as long as I can remember - not just for their success in athletic endeavors and the image that they project, but more for how they reached the pinnacle of achievement in their respective sports. Both are very gifted athletes with a steely determination not to fail, and both are willing to pay the price of success with tireless practice and preparation.
As I watched Tiger win the British Open last weekend, I noticed several things about him that are a study in winning and success:
I realized long ago that I would never be the athlete that Jordan or Woods are, but I can strive to succeed in other areas of my own just as they do. Emulating them can be very instructive to us, as well as motivating. These are real people with real emotions, problems, and obstacles, and they have a work ethic they follow that leads them to winning. Can you follow this work ethic?
Thank you Dr. Ward for your wisdom and insights. As the rest of you ponder his perceptions this week, select the one that made you feel a little uncomforatble.
Notice how it playes out in your world. For example, is it difficult for you to stay with your plan? Are you easily distracted off course? How about being in the moment? Do you allow yourself this luxury? What if you were to do so?
Enjoy your discoveries and have a stimulating week.
