You Gotta Want It
Opening ceremonies for the Olympics are history and the games have begun. It doesn’t matter if it’s an olympic event, a Super Bowl or a high school basketball game, athletics has shown us again and again that desire to win plays a huge part in the outcome of the contest.
Of course, its true in every endeavor in life, but in athletics we are conditioned to believe that talent is the great determiner of who wins and loses. But in a surprising number of games it comes down not to talent, but to the desire to win. Who wants it the most.
Hustle makes up for a lot of mistakes on the basketball court, in hockey and most any other event. And it works the same in your job.
Yes, I know that you think it’s different for you. But it’s not. The attitude that you bring to your job each day is a huge factor in whether or not you will make an impact in the life of someone today.
In our work here at the Rescue Mission we need to bring our best effort everyday to overcome the negativity, challenges, and chaos that our clients are dealing with. To use an athletic term: You Gotta Want It.
How about your job? Are you bringing your best effort, hustling and looking to make a difference today?
