Master Coach and head of worldwide coaching organization Coachville‘s Dave Buck wrote some eye-catching headlines for an in-person event he’s leading which he calls “Pre-season Training Camp”. I’ve known Dave for a few years, and as a visionary in the coaching field, he is sharing a sports analogy – certainly influenced by his role as assistant coach for Seton Hall’s soccer team. His thoughts on positioning your attitude for a winning season:
Winning is a function of knowing what game you are playing; knowing the rules of the game and having a game plan.
A Winning season is only possible if the season is defined. The law of periodicity is critical. (if the game is always on, you are probably losing) To win you must know when the game is over; when the season is over; celebrate wins and debrief wins and losses.
Periodicity is the quality of recurring at intervals.
Winning requires that you are ALWAYS aware of the score but NEVER looking at the scoreboard while the game is on. And creating a winning game plan on game day
Winning is a function of your Environments: as you build support from the world around you your game will come alive and so will you.
Winning is a function of your mental and emotional framework : your physical and mental attitude confine and refine what you do and don’t do
Winning is a function of Energy: as you learn to honor the natural flow from chaos to order you will avoid losing streaks and your winning percentage will increase
Winning is a function of playing to your strengths: as you “Get real” and become masterfully yourself you will play better and win more games
Winning is a function of Playing Better (improving your Skills through Practices): as you challenge yourself to improve as a player your joy of playing will increase and you will win more games
Winning always has a price. Are you willing to pay it?
The primary purpose of playing the game is to end every day feeling fulfilled
This is great because it’s true – the game can’t always be on. We’d all be burned out if that was the case. And fulfillment at the end is a wonderful thing. Have you thought of your business or your selling in this way? More on Dave’s CoachVille.
