Besides the holiday buzz, there is a lot going on in the sports world right now.

Many different sports being played this time of year.

Professionals and amateurs alike.

In seems in sports, there are countless stories about the underdog and the come from being victory.

I especially like the “against all odds” stories.

The 1984 Men’s USA Olympic Hockey Team.

Micheal Jordan with the flu in game 5 of the NBA playoffs ((by the way I was at that game in Salt Lake City)).

Rudy Ruettiger from the movie “Rudy”.

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.

Kirk Gibson’s home run in the 1988 World Series (Go Dodgers!).

These champions all had one thing in common….

They did whatever they had to do in order to win.

It didn’t matter is they were against all odds.

The fact that the star player was out of the game with an injury didn’t matter.

The unfair call by the referee with seconds left in the game didn’t matter.

All of those things were irrelevant.


Because they HAD to win.

They had to rise up and conquer.

It was their time to be the champion.

When you focus on your income, then you lose sight of the game.

I would have you consider that the next best action is what’s right in front of you.

Book the appointment.

Get the contract signed.

Negotiate the deal.

Close it.

That’s what the champions do.

Control the game in front of you and the rest will take care of itself.

By the way, YOU are the only one that can rise up.

It doesn’t matter what anyone else is doing.

These winners found a way to victory and so will you.

This is how we live everyday.

This is our environment.

This is where you can go to win the game everyday:

Do the real work with power and purpose
