#146: Power Play – Ability

Heart and Ice Power Play - Ability

Although talent is needed to get to the top, you can’t succeed without having a good attitude, respect for those around you, and dedication towards what you are doing.  When you respond to everyday situations in life as well as those pressure-filled, difficult moments in a way that aligns with the person that you want to be, that is what results in success.  Character is built through the decisions you make when facing adversity and choosing to ‘play the right way.’  Talent may make you good at your job, the sport you play, or on the stage you perform on, but it is character that makes you a good teammate, friend, and neighbour.

Game Plan:  Take a breather when you find yourself in a high-pressure situation and ask yourself, “Does my behaviour align with the person that I want to (and know I can) be?”  What do you need to do to get closer to that example?
