When you take the road less traveled, you hear a lot of negative chatter from others and from yourself when you don’t perform well. But winners don’t give in or tell people what they want to hear; they stick to the process instead.
If you watched the Super Bowl, you saw two games — one where the Patriots sucked and one where they could do no wrong. The Patriots, unlike the Falcons, didn’t panic when the game wasn’t going their way. They stuck to their game plan and the rest is history. Bill Belichick (head coach of the Patriots) always says, “Do your job” and “Next play”. He focuses on process 24/7. Only the super committed can hear these soundbites, put their frustration aside and execute.
