Lessons from Superbowl 2017
Superbowl 2017, (Superbowl 51) is in the history books. But it will long be in our collective memories. The New England Patriots beat the Atlantic Falcons 34 to 28 in overtime after a seemingly impossible comeback. A spectacular end to what started as a boring game and turned into one of the finest performances ever witnessed by a team in a Superbowl.
There are multiple lessons to be learned from this game that can be applied to our everyday lives and businesses.
Lessons to be learned
Down 28-3 with less than 3 minutes left in the 3rd quarter, virtually everyone had given up hope that New England had a chance. Everyone except New England! Apparently they didn’t get the message. The game waas about to change in the 2nd half of Superbowl 2017.
The 1st Half Does Not Count
This is a lesson that applies to all business and to life. The 1st half doesn’t count. The first half is practice, warm-up, assessment. It is a time to analyze. A time to figure out what is working and what is not. A time to assess the competition and to take stock of our strengths and weaknesses.
Too often in life and in business we let setbacks discourage us rather than strengthen us. It is said that anyone who hasn’t made mistakes hasn’t done much. Mistakes and setbacks are part of what strengthen us and enable us to go on to win, and not only win, but win big.
A Decision is Mandatory
When New England went to the locker room at half time, they had a choice, a decision to make. They could either accept defeat or expect victory. They chose to expect victory. They came back onto the field absolutely convinced they could, and would win this game. They made a decision to win.
Meanwhile it would appear that Atlanta got a little too comfortable in their presumed conquest, a little too complacent, a little too relaxed.
Victory requires a decision. You do not try to win. Try is a weak word. Your either do or you do not! If you try, you will fail. Try implies lack of belief in yourself.
This is the way life is. The instant you get complacent, life throws a curve ball. For Atlanta, the curve ball was called Tom Brady
Belief is Essential
If you don’t believe you can, you surely will not. As Art Williams said, “The number 1 problem that keeps people from winning in the United States today is lack of belief in themselves” Belief is foundational, it is the bedrock upon which all success is based. Without it, failure is inevitable.
It is really quite simple. As Henry Ford said, “Whether or not you think you can or you think you can’t you are right”. So, which is it? Do you think you can or do you think you can’t.
