Intensity – What Can Michael Jordan Teach Us About Business?
So today in this video I am going to be talking about what we can learn from Michael Jordan about business. A lot of things that I learned about business I actually learned from playing basketball.
In life, many of the things that we do have transferable skills. The difference is that most people don’t think like that and only look at things in one dimension. When you start to look at the different things that are in your life and how parts of those can be mapped across to your personal and professional life, more opportunities for growth emerge.
What if you had a hobby, let’s say for instance basketball, and there was a strategy or a mindset that had to be adopted to reach a certain level in your ability to play the game. Do you think that there’s a possibility that as you make that shift in how you play the game and the mindset attached with that shift that you could benefit from that in other areas of your life too? What if that mindset shift could be applied to your business so you can close more sales? What if your level of understanding between you and your partner improved as a result of that shift?
This is the kind of thing that this video will show you. Take a look and see where you can apply this new learning.
So now that you have seen this video and seen how I have used what I’ve learned, what can you take from this?
Learning to take things from videos such as this is what is going to take you forwards. I don’t mean by that , that you just watch it and then think
Oh that’s nice, I’ll remember that someday when I need it.
What I mean is that you learn one little nugget and then you go and implement it straight away. You find an aspect of your personal or professional life that you can alter today by using what you have just learned. Then you test it to see what happens. You will invariably get feedback from that and you will know what worked and what didn’t work.
In the beginning you will get much more of what doesn’t work than what does work. That is then your cue to alter things and find out how you an make it work for you. Getting feedback like that isn’t a cue to give in like I see so many people do. This attitude shift towards learning is what will take you and your business forwards. It’s about taking what you can from what you get and altering it to fit you.
So what are you going to do today to start making use of this new knowledge. Commit to just one thing if you have to but make sure that you do something. If you’re not moving forwards, then you are going backwards.
