Being a member of Bob Proctor’s SixMinutesToSuccess program, I have the privilege of receiving great life and business insights and I would like to share with you what he pointed out to us about rules for winning.
They are definite rules for winning. It doesn’t matter what you do. And you’ve got to play by the rule.
I was running a seminar just recently and I made up a little scenario in my mind to put a point across. Some people will just take breaks instead of staying on course.
I said, “I want you to imagine that you’re watching a ball game. You may be in Yankee stadium and the pitcher fires a ball and wham! The ball hits right past the pitcher just about decapitating him, and it goes right in the center field and they’re looking – where’s the second baseman?
And somebody said, “Oh, he had to pee.” “What? What?? He had to what?!!” “He had to pee.
You don’t pee when you’re playing ball.
Now think about it for a moment. Can you imagine that? You can’t even imagine that happening, and you’re saying, “Where’s he going with this?” Here’s where I am going…
If you’re a pro and you’re involved in the game of life, there are situations where you just do not take a break. Regardless, you keep going.
You don’t pee in the middle of a ball game.
Well, when you’ve got things really rockin’, you don’t take a break. You know there are certain rules you have to follow in what you’re doing.
Now I want you to stop and think of what you’re doing. I want you to spend four or five minutes thinking of what you’re going to do today and then set up a scenario in your mind where you’re going to give it everything you’ve got, regardless.
I guarantee you, you’ll have a good day. And always remember, you don’t pee when you’re playing ball.
This SixMinutesToSuccess talk made me realize that indeed, I do, in certain circumstances, stop the momentum I’m in, to take a break. Hum…ain’t gonna happen anymore. 🙂
Today’s scenario is listed on my todo-mustdo lists and will give it all my best. I invite you to do the same and wish you lots of productivity and creativity.
PS: Here’s a comment by Joseph Anthony on the above talk. The Difference Between Taking a Break from Your Dreams and Resting. Great analogy!
