#229: Power Play – Outwork them

Heart and Ice Power Play - Outwork them

There will always be someone better out there, but that just means that you’ll have to find other ways to beat them or use your skills to your advantage.  If you can’t outplay them, outwork them.  When it comes down to it, you do have control over your effort.  Putting forth your best effort gives you a better chance, it develops your own skills, and also makes your opponent have to work harder – they probably won’t underestimate you anymore!  Even if you don’t get the win, nothing bad comes from putting in the work and giving it all you’ve got.

Game Plan:  Don’t let yourself be intimidated by other peoples’ talent.  Talent can only get you so far, but a good work ethic is something that pays off in the end.
