In business, this is ever important for leaders to fully understand. That the culture of a team is everything. Over any marketing plans, product launchesâ€¦ anything.
The same is true for us as athletes.
Weâ€™ve all heard the line, “itâ€™s not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog”. The picture perfect strategy, executed half-heartedly, will always be beaten by the less-than-ideal strategy, but executed with full heart.
Our character is our back bone. It wonâ€™t be our strategy that we fall back to in round 4 of “Kelly”. In our darkest hour, where we need it the most, we will fall back to something far deeper. Our character. Our purpose for doing what we do. Cultivate that, and everything else falls into place.
