The Winning Feeling
Who would have thought that an AFL team called the Bulldogs could create such a powerful and uplifting experience that influenced and shifted the collective spirit of positive belief in each and every person regardless of age, gender, status, culture or even football team. It totally transcended endless people to experience a natural high that many still have not come down from.
Here is a team and business, as little as two years ago who was destined for ruin. Within a short period of time arose from the ashes like the rising of the phoenix and transformed themselves by confronting and self-correcting their issues. Moved forward with a collective vision, a key support network, leadership that built connected and nurtured relationships, a total belief and energy in what they could achieve and an understanding of their strengths and weaknesses. They thrived and survived and the rest is history!
There is nothing complicated in the formula. Human development is key. When surrounded by like- minded people who want to develop and continually improve by learning from mistakes and deficiencies, growth and success is inevitable.
It’s not about one person or one talent that exudes ego and self-entitlement and compares and competes with others and believes they are better than. It’s not about claiming credit for others work or playing the blame game or using the pecking order as a power play or being rigid and resistant to any learning and growth.
It is about a team who has a great leader who displays humility and connection, one who promotes development and accountability, one who knows and sees an individuals potential, at the same time knows what blocks that potential. A leader who has clear direction and has ability to empathise and care without ever lowering the standard. To see and connect to what is on the inside. This influence potentially unlocks something greater from within each individual and once connected is unstoppable.
A person who believes in Self, creates a team who believes in themselves and that formulates a team that can achieve anything!
When you feel a winner in your work, life, relationship or even your football team it will make you rise above any problem or obstacle you have, your job is to keep rising from the inside.
