Super Bowl number 51 was yesterday. Even if you are not a football fan it was a game to watch. The New England Patriots came from behind to beat the Atlanta Falcons in one of the most unbelievable 2nd halves of a football. Here are some huge takeaways from the game that you can add to your thought process.
- Stay Hungry. The Patriots got creamed in the first half of the game because they weren’t hungry. They have gone to the Super Bowl many times and won many times. The Atlanta Falcons came out strong. They were hungry.
- Don’t Get Cocky. The Falcons lost the game because they had a sizeable lead and momentum. They felt they had the game. They relaxed.
- Stay focused and look for the path to victory. The Patriots despite their huge point deficit looked forward. If there was time left on the clock, there was still a way to win.
- Don’t ever give up. Even after the momentum of the game had switched and the Patriots began to actually play, they still had a very small probability of winning the game. Even if they lost the game by 1 point with 5 seconds to spare they still would have earned respect for making such an unbelievable comeback. They did not give up though and played through to the end, to the very last second.
Even if the points and everything else in the world feels like it is stacked against you. Stay hungry, stay focused, look for a path to win, and don’t ever give up. Ask you self what would Tom Brady do?
